Nutella {Chocolate Hazelnut} Cupcakes

Moms everywhere (that would be ME) are counting down until the first day of school.
It's almost here...
Wahoo!! 

Let's take a break from Back to School shopping and celebrate, shall we?

I think this calls for chocolate. And nutella! I give you...
Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream!


Here are the star ingredients in this recipe...


The coffee creamer adds a touch of hazelnut flavor to the chocolate cupcakes,
and makes them super moist and delicious.

The nutella makes the buttercream out of this world!
Seriously, you will be eating it right out of the bowl. With your fingers.

 Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream
by Bird On A Cake
Yield: 30 cupcakes
Ingredients
Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup hazelnut coffee creamer
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Nutella Buttercream
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions
Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your muffin pans with paper liners. Bring some water to a boil and keep it simmering while you mix the other ingredients.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, hazelnut creamer, oil and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer until combined.

Add 1 cup of the boiling water and carefully stir until it is mixed in. Beat for 1 1/2 minutes with mixer. Pour batter into paper liners, filling each 2/3 full. Bake for 15-17 minutes (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean). Allow cupcakes to cool on a rack.

Nutella Buttercream

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and Nutella on low speed. Alternately add sugar and cream; mix until fluffy. If not desired consistency, add more cream one tablespoon at a time. Keep covered.

  34. Hi, i tried these cupcakes and they were a big success. I made a few changes,substituted half the flour with roasted ground hazelnuts and used 'vollkorn' flour. And i put much less sugar both in dough and cream but they were sweet enough. The amount of water seemed way too much and i got a very thin dough first then added more flour and it was fine. Probably because im not used to measuring in cups but grams! Good recipe, i would definitely recommend it (and try hazelnuts inthe dough!!) Greetings from Austria

  35. i made them yesterday. really soft and lovely. only change i made was i used less frosting per cupcake :D though my estimate was correct however it would be nice if you could elaborate if you want us to use liquid/powdered creamer :) reading the recipe i thought it to be liquid (solids mixed into liquids) however a newbie might now know.. anyhow they were great!
