Nutella Cupcakes Recipe

by Samira

Is there anyone among us who doesn’t like Nutella? Someone who loves Nutella like me is always looking for recipes with this chocolate hazelnut spread. I think soft and chocolatey Nutella cupcakes with creamy and sweet frosting is the best idea.


What Do You Need to Make Nutella Cupcakes?

  • Nutella chocolate and hazelnut spread: As the name implies, these cupcakes are filled with hazelnut Nutella spread. Of course, we are going to make Nutella frosting for cupcakes together.
  • Flour: For this recipe, you need all-purpose flour.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder causes cupcakes to rise. Using the right amount of baking powder in cakes and muffins is very important.
  • Butter: Use unsalted butter for these cupcakes.
  • Egg: In this recipe, only 2 eggs are used.
  • Sugar: Use brown sugar for Biscoff muffins.
  • Vanilla extract: Like all muffins and cakes that we bake, vanilla extract is essential.
  • Milk: Milk or buttermilk is usually used to make cupcakes.


How to Make Cupcakes Like a Pro?

  • Before starting, gather the ingredients and place them on the countertop.
  • Measure the required ingredients accurately.
  • Make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature and fresh.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
