Nutella Cupcakes~


This is a very rich and dense cupcake~Enjoy!  Once again, you can never have enough Nutella~ Buon Appetito~


3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1  cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (one stick),  unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons Nutella

Preheat your oven to 350/bake
Sift together all your dry ingredients and set aside.  In another bowl combine your butter and sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer for a few minutes to combine.   Add your eggs one at a time, then your vanilla extract.   Add  half of your dry ingredients  and mix, a little at a time with your electric beater or mixer until everything is soft and combined.   Add your sour cream and Nutella last and beat until all is combined and very creamy.
 
Pour into prepared cupcake pan lined with papercups.  Cook for 16-18  minutes.  Oven times and temperatures will vary some.  Be sure and always insert a toothpick in your cupcake to check and see if it's done.    Make appropriate adjustments for convection ovens.  Let cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.  Cool completely before frosting your cupcake.

Simple cupcake white frosting:
2 ounces butter softened to room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners sugar

Into a bowl combine your softened butter, cream cheese.  Add your sugar and then your Vanilla extract.  Refrigerate until your are ready to frost your cupcakes. 
You can even add some Nutella in the frosting. Your frosting will turn darker in color but be very good. 
I added broken chocolate chip pieces on top of the cupcake to add more texture. 
I piped Nutella into the bottom of the cupcake for a creamy center surprise.  You can do this by simply turning it over, and inserting your tip of your pastry bag into the bottom. Takes some practice.

Special hint:  The texture of this cupcake is not your typical "cake like" cupcake.  You will need a big glass of milk for sure~

My 4 year-old had made me promise him to make these on the weekend! I normally never have Nutella in the house because, when I do, I end up eating the whole jar with a spoon, standing up by the larder... I will have to make an exception!
