As I said a while back, I was going to try out this Nutella cupcake recipe, I gave it a go! It is fairly simple and I found it easy to make. I tend to steer away from the kitchen as much as possible unless my mum asks me to help her with cooking anything, or the occasional visit to the fridge to look inside for food only to walk away from it empty handed. Other than that, the kitchen is pretty much non-existent in my world, aha.
Here's the recipe again for anyone that wants to try it out too! :-

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

Preheat oven to 325F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Don't worry if the batter doesn't look smooth. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.
Using an ice cream scoop, fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full, if you're not using a scoop. Top each cake with 1 1/2 tsp Nutella. Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the Nutella.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 12.

And here's pictures of the ones I made. It was disastrous the first time as I forgot to turn down the oven fire mark which meant all my cupcakes were burnt after 10 minutes of them being in the oven. I tried my best not to give up though, so I gave them another go and they came out perfectly!

Hopefully I'll be making lots of other types of cupcakes in the future as it's always nice to bake something and then eat it, knowing you've made it yourself. This little recipe was a perfect start. x
