Nutella Cupcakes Recipe With Nutella Frosting

For all you nutella fans, and cupcake fans, come together as one and enjoy these delicious Nutella Cupcakes Recipe.

Before I leave you with my inspirational quote of the day—I give you fair warning: Pipe your cupcakes quickly or else you may run the risk of piping the frosting straight into your mouth and end up with a few naked cupcakes.

A few notes for Nutella cupcakes:

  • For the frosting I used a Swiss Meringue buttercream, but feel free to swap it out with your favorite frosting. For a visual tutorial and tips and tricks on how to make Swiss Meringue buttercream click here.
  • The chocolate cupcake portion is an Alice Med rich recipe. The adaptations I made:  I added a half cup of hot coffee in place of the hot water portions.
  • As always, I highly recommend Scharffen Berger’s Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder.It’s the best on the market and will make a huge difference in your baking results in terms of flavor.

Melt the chocolate coating in a microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring using the back of the metal spoon, in between. As an alternative, you can melt it over a pan of simmering water but stir it still time by time. In either way, you will avoid overheating the coating. If the chocolate mix has melted, you can add food color and shortening if the coating is too thick.

Now, take out the cake pops from the refrigerator and put a toothpick on top of it to hold the cake pops. By holding on to the toothpick, dip the cake pops one by one into the bowl of the chocolate coating. Dip only once and avoid stirring because the cake pops can fall down into the coating.

Place the cake pops to another wax of paper. Since some of the coating can pool around the base, take a toothpick and draw a line around the base before the coating hardens. Sprinkle some jimmies, nuts or any toppings you want to decorate the cake pops. If you want, you can take a resealable plastic bag, pour the extra chocolate coating inside it, snap off the corner and drop or drizzle it in a zigzag motion.

Is Sourdough Pancakes Starter?

Whenever someone makes sourdough, the first question they ask is “what the flip is this starter stuff in the recipe?” Starter can be bought in your local supermarket.  Its a powder that contains small microorganisms which grow together and live off the flour, water and oxygen.  Its similar to yeast in that its ALIVE.   But don’t worry, PETA has yet to label starter as cruel to cook.

Using starter helps the dough rise in place of baking powder.   This typically takes a while to ferment…sometimes a few hours or overnight.   There’s a lot of chemistry involved and even the temperature of the room and the amount of yeast in the air can effect the fermentation process.

Sourdough Starter Pancakes Key Points to Remember

  • starter
  • active starter
  • sourdough starter

The better the starter the better the sourdough pancakes. So don’t go bottom self discount on the starter.  Get the best.

Typically making sourdough is an overnight process. So plan on starting the batter the night before you plan pancake party.

Its suggested to use a plastic or glass bowl when preparing the starter.  The little cells are not metal heads and they prefer to dine without a metal bowl.

  • 1 1/2 cup sifted flour (sift 3 times)

  1. In a plastic or glass bowl, mix 1 cup of starter with the warm water and sifted flour using a fork.  DO NOT OVER MIX.
  2. Cover the bowl with saran wrap and let sit overnight.
  3. DO NOT REFRIGERATE.

Directions The Day Of the Feast

  1. Set out the melted butter, egg, and buttermilk.  Everything must be room temperature.
  2. Whisk them together with the vanilla, salt, and sugars.

  4. Preheat griddle or pan to medium high.
  5. Pour our heat pancake and cook until bubbles start t form on top.
  6. Flip over and cook another 2-3 minutes.

Never refrigerate your mix of sourdough starer.  This stuff is temperature sensitive.

Place all the dried fruit in a bowl or large measuring jug with the brandy and leave to soak for at least four hours or preferably overnight.

Preheat the oven to 110 deg C, 225 deg F, Gas Mark 1/4.

Place the soft margarine or butter in a bowl with the sugar and beat together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs a little at at time, alternating with a little flour to prevent the mix from splitting. Next,add the treacle and citrus rind to the mix and stir in gently.

Towards the end of the baking time, test the cake with a skewer, or similar. If it comes out clean after being pushed into the center, then the Christmas cake is baked.

When baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Carefully remove the paper when cool and wrap in foil before storing in an airtight container until shortly before Christmas. Like most recipes for Christmas cake, unwrapping and dribbling a little brandy onto the cake from time to time will make it even more luxurious!

1/2 Cup Sour Cream

2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

5 Eggs

White Chocolate Cheesecake Topping

2 oz. White Chocolate, shaved

Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Directions for white chocolate raspberry cheesecake recipe:

Combine the raspberry preserves with 1/4 cup water in a medium microwave-safe bowl.  Heat for 1 1/2 minutes on high in your microwave.

Stir until smooth.  Strain to remove the raspberry seeds (toss them out), then let the strained preserves sit to cool, then put the bowl in the refrigerator until later.

Mix in 1/3 cup melted margarine.  Press the crumb into a 9″spring form pan that has been lined on the bottom and side with parchment paper.  Using the bottom of a drinking glass or similar, press the crumb mixture flat into the bottom of the pan and about 2/3 the way up the side.
