Dark chocolate & Nutella cupcakes

The 3rd birthday of the week! This morning I baked another bunch of cupcakes for my dear friend Heather. One of the best chocolate cupcake I've ever made if not THE best. The cupcakes are extremely light and a little bit bitter with the dark chocolate dough, and the Nutella makes the center super sweet and creamy. A perfect combo!

I've topped the cupcakes with some fondant (black & white leftovers from this recipe). Really easy to make, I basically cut rounds with a glass a "glued" them on top of the cupcakes with some Nutella.

Ingredients (for 12 cupcakes) :
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tp baking powder
- 80g butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanila extract
- 18 tsp Nutella
- Black & white fondant

 

Preheat the oven at 160C.

Mix the butter and the sugar together until pale and creamy. Add the eggs and the vanilla.

Add the cocoa and whisk. Pour in the baking powder and the flour. Slowly add the milk and whisk.

Place 1 tbs of the mix in each muffin case. Place 1 tsp of Nutella in the middle. Top woth another tsp of dough on the top.

Bake the cupcakes for 18 minutes & let them cool.

Once they are cool you can top them with some fondant. Use the nutella to glue the fondant to the cupcakes.
