Nutella-Stuffed Cupcakes Recipe


For the Cupcakes:

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole milk

For the Nutella Filling:

1/2 cup Nutella or any hazelnut chocolate spread
For the Nutella Buttercream:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Nutella or any hazelnut chocolate spread
2-3 tablespoons whole milk (adjust for desired consistency)

For the Cupcakes:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the softened butter until creamy. Add the sugar and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, starting and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Divide the cupcake batter evenly among the liners, filling each about 2/3 full.

For the Nutella filling, drop a teaspoon of Nutella into the center of each cupcake, then cover it with a little more batter until it’s hidden.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake (avoid the Nutella center) comes out clean. Allow them to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


For the Nutella Buttercream:

In a large bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy.

Gradually add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until well combined.

Mix in the Nutella and add milk gradually until you reach your desired consistency for the frosting.



Once the cupcakes are completely cool, pipe or spread the Nutella Buttercream on top of the cupcakes using your preferred decorating tip.

Optionally, drizzle a little more Nutella on top for an extra chocolate-hazelnut touch.

These Nutella-Stuffed Cupcakes offer a delightful surprise in every bite with their hidden Nutella centers. Enjoy the rich, creamy flavor of Nutella both inside and out for a chocolate-hazelnut heaven!
