Chocolate Cupcakes With Nutella Frosting

Hello everyone! So we’re having a bake sale this Friday to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and since I haven’t baked in a long while, I thought I would get some practice in. Practice makes perfect after all! I wanted to share my baking creations with you, so I hope you enjoy my Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting!

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees
  2. Put the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl, mix together with a wooden spoon or electric whisk until all the ingredients are combined.
  3. Slowly pour in the milk whilst mixing, beat until all the ingredients are well mixed. Add the egg and beat well, scraping the sides for any unmixed ingredients.
  4. Spoon the mixture into paper cases until 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. After 20 minutes, remove from the oven and insert a cocktail stick or the tip of a knife in the centre of a Cupcake. If this comes out clean, the Cupcakes are ready! Remove from the pan and let to cool on a wire rack.
  6. To make the Nutella Frosting, combine all the ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Then decorate the cooled Cupcakes with the Frosting. Add any extra decoration if preferred =)

For the finished product, you should have something like this!
