Nutella Self Frosting Cupcakes

I love Nutella so what is not better than nutella cupcakes? Better yet, self frosting cupcakes.
I found this recipe online.


  • 10 tbsps. butter, softened (I used vegetable oil, next time I would stick to butter)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar 
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder.
  • Nutella (around 1/3 cup)

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line the cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour, salt, and baking powder.
  5. Fill each liner 3/4th the way. 
  6. Top each cupcake with around 1 tsp. Nutella (more if you would like). Swirl Nutella with toothpick.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean (from batter). I needed a little bit more time.

Enjoy! If anyone has any other ideas of what to bake using Nutella please post them here!
