These Amazing Nutella Cupcakes are the perfect treat for all of you nutty Nutella lovers. This recipe is based on Cupcake Jemma’s Nutella Cupcakes. Even the biscuit base was inspired by another one of her cupcake recipes. I love the way she incorporates the flavour into every layer of the cake she makes, making it the ultimate one

Cupcake Jemma uses an all in one method for the sponge, which is adding pretty much all of the ingredients to the mixer and mixing it all together in one for not very long. This method works so well and is the easiest ever! You would think that the longer you take to mix each ingredient in the better the batter will be, that might be the case for some larger cakes but with cupcakes you don’t want to add too much air to the batter. Here is Cupcake Jemma’s step by step video for her Nutella Cupcakes.

What makes these Amazing Nutella Cupcakes so Amazing?

Every layer of these little cakes from heaven have hazelnuts or Nutella in them. The base is made with hazelnuts and biscuits, there are hazelnuts in the sponge and the butter cream has a large helping of that dreamy Nutella we all love. The nutty flavour and texture is so intense your mouth will totally melt.

I’m looking at the last one right now trying to decide whether I should save it for my kiddies or eat it?
