How to make Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream

  1. Chocolate Cupcakes: Stir cocoa powder and hot water in a small bowl until well combined. Leave it to cool.
  2. Whisk flour, chocolate chips, baking powder and salt in another bowl.
  3. Grease muffin tray or line it with paper liners. Preheat your oven at 180C.
  4. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy using electric/hand mixer. Start by adding one egg at a time and beat until smooth. Combine flour mixture and gently beat until just everything gets incorporated.
  5. Pour in cooled cocoa mixture and stir until smooth. Scoop this batter up to two-thirds of the capacity of pre-arranged muffin cups.
  6. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, till cakes turn springy and toothpick runs clean. (Start checking after 15 minutes). Over baking can result in dry cupcakes.
  7. Transfer onto wire rack to cool. Once they turn cool, decorate with buttercream.
  8. NUTELLA BUTTERCREAM
  9. Sift powdered sugar to avoid lumps. Beat butter till pale and fluffy using electric/hand mixer. This will take 5-6 minutes or more, be patient.
  10. Slowly start adding the sugar. Beat on low first and gradually increase the speed to high. Continue to do until sugar and butter or completely mixed.
  11. Beat by adding Nutella and vanilla extract. To get thick and fluff up cream then add 1 tbsp. of milk. Add more milk to get wet cream.
My Tip: You can increase the amount of Nutella if you prefer to. I made a lighter version since I was making chocolate cupcakes and didn’t want it to be too rich. If there is excess buttercream, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for upto 2 weeks and in the freezer for a couple of months. To use again, bring to room temperature and mix in the beater to fluff it up.
