Sugar Aunts: Nutella Cupcakes With a Gooey Chocolate FIlling

Nutella Cupcakes With a Gooey Chocolate FIlling






I was looking for a Valentine's Day cupcake recipe that did not involve me carting 3 kids to the store.  I scoped out the cupboards and did a little Google search to find this recipe.  With a little modification, it became the most perfect

Gooey Filling Nutella Cupcakes.

 

These cupcakes are the gooiest you will ever slice into.  That is, if you take the time to actually slice into the cupcake.  Mostly, you will find  yourself licking the filling off of your finger and wishing the recipe made a few more cupcakes. 

We used this recipe that called for only 3 ingredients.  I found it on Just A Pinch but changed it up just a little by adding the Baking Powder. 

1/2 cup Nutella
1 egg
5 Tbsp of Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
 
 
Wisk the Nutella and egg together in a bowl.  Stir in Flour and Baking Powder. 
Pour into a lined cupcake tin.  The more loved and spotted (aka well-used), the better.


 
Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes.  Watch and make sure they do not brown. You want them to be moist, not dry.
 
Let those little cuties cool.
 

 
Now, here is the most delicious and genius part of this recipe.  Completely Sugar Aunt-ified.
 
Because a Chocolate cupcake recipe can only require MORE chocolate.
 
Of the Gooey Chocolate sauce variety.
 

 
I used a baby spoon to dent in the top and smash a hole in the middle of each cupcake.  And poured in a little chocolate sauce. 
 
It's that easy.
 
I thought about doing some sort of fudge-y mixture as the center, but wanted something that would be like a molten cake when bit into.  The Sundae Syrup was the perfect solution.  It was liquid-y even the next day and after being stored overnight in the fridge.
 
The icing recipe was a basic buttercream recipe, using cocoa.  I don't have measurements because I mostly made it up and should have had more powdered sugar.  But ran a little low.
So we made due with what we had.
 
Big Sister was so happy to help me decorate.
 


This recipe will only make about 5 cupcakes.  You will want more.
 :)
