Self-frosting nutella cupcakes

Recipe courtesy of Bakingbites


10 tbsp(140 grams) butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups (200 grams) sifted all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Nutella, approx. 1/3 cup


First I sieved the flour baking powder and salt into a bowl and combined and set to one side. Then I placed the cubed softened butter into a mixing bowl and the caster sugar and using a fork I mashed the butter into the sugar until mixed well and then stirred quicker to make the mixture light and fluffy and pale in colour.  Then I cracked three eggs into a bowl and beated lightly and spooned this mixture bit by bit into the butter and sugar mixture beating thoroughly to incorporate well. Then I stirred in the flour mixture and vanilla using a knife to fold in carefully until fully mixed. I then greased twleve individual cup cake tins and spooned a heap of the mixture into the tins to approx 3/4 full. Then with a teaspoon I topped the cakes with a small dollop of nutella and using a toothpick I swirled the nutella around to make sure you have the cake mixture and nutella evenly spread on top. I pre-heated the oven to 180c and placed in the middle of the oven for 25 minutes.
