Today is no ordinary day - it's World Nutella Day!!
I love Nutella. I mean, really LOVE Nutella. I've mentioned it before, I'm a Nutella nutter. I think Nutella is delicious on bread, on fruit, in fudge (check out my Nutella fudge here), on its own... In fact, the most usual way I eat it is straight out of the jar. How do you eat Nutella? I'm curious.
Another great thing about Nutella is that it is good for baking. I whipped up these Nutella cupcakes in no time at all, and it is a super easy recipe, with very few ingredients. Just four really. You need eggs, flour, whipping cream and of course -- Nutella.
- 400 grams Nutella
- 4 eggs
- 160 grams flour
Preheat your oven to 175°C.
Whisk the eggs with the Nutella. It's difficult at first, but it will come together. Add the flour and blend until even. Pour batter into cupcake tins and bake for 10-15 minutes. It's done when the top springs back when you lightly press it. Let cool before adding the frosting.
- 2 big tablespoons Nutella
- 3 dl whipping cream
Whip the cream until stiff peaks. Mix a third of the whipped cream with the Nutella. Then gently fold the Nutella mixture into the rest of the whipped cream, being careful not to let the air you've whipped into it deflate. Pipe the frosting on top of the cooled bases.
I added sprinkles to my Nutella cupcakes because sprinkles make everything better! Even the flawless Nutella is better with a bit of sprinkles!
So, my friends, don't forget to celebrate this yummy-yummy day by eating some Nutella!
