Nutella Cupcakes with Chocolate Chips

Pin It
There are so many versions of Self-frosting Nutella Cupcake recipes available online whenever you do a goggle search. Here I am using a recipe from Camemberu with slight changes by adding my son's favourite mini chocolate chips to make it more chocolatey on top of the Nutella used.


For the recipe of this Nutella Cupcakes with Chocolate Chip you would notice that I have used 2 types of flours like what I did for the Kiwifruit and Lime Cupcakes as i prefer a lighter texture by in-cooperate some self-raising flour. But if you find it too troublesome, you could always follow the original recipe and use 100g of plain flour plus 1 teaspoon of baking powder instead.

Recipe adapted and modify from Camemberu Self-Frosting Nutella Cupcakes.

(serves: make 6 | Preparation: 10-15 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

70g Plain Flour
30g Self-Raising Flour
70g Unsalted Butter, soften
70g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs, 60g each
1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
Pinch of Salt
Some Nutella Spread

1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy(about 2 minutes on medium speed)

2. Add egg one at a time and beat till no trace of egg mixture.

3. Next add vanilla and stir in flour mixture until flours are full in-cooperate before toss in the chocolate chips and mix well.

4. Fill each cup with 1/4 of the batter, add in 1 teaspoon of Nutella each before covering it with batter to fill 3/4 full.

5. Give the mixture a quick swirl using toothpick and bake in preheated 180 degree celsius oven for 20 minutes or until skewer insert and comes out clean.

These are some of the Mini Nutella and Peanut Butter Cupcakes which my boy would occasionally request as his tea snack or breakfast. And I guess these mini version would be great for kids to bring to school or outings compared to the normal size cupcakes above.

Lastly I would like to submit this Nutella Cupcakes with Chocolate Chips for Aspiring Bakers #13: Enjoy Cupcakes! (November 2011) hosted by Min of Min's Blog. Enjoy everyone!

    These look like a chocolate chip cookie in a cupcake form-yum!  Yes, it would be a change of pace not to have to frost cupcakes, so I have saved this recipe.  Thanks for sharing this one, simply delicious.

  4. I was actually late bloomer for Nutella.  I didn't grow up with it (how come Mom?!), but now I'm crazy about it and I'm making sure kids are enjoying this... these cupcakes look YUM!  We'll kill it in a few hours, guarantee.

  12. Hi Cynthia, you mean the mini animals cupcake case? I got them from BIY shop, these cupcakes case are from Wilton brand.

  13. does it have to be caster sugar or can it be regular sugar? 

  14. Hi sMichelle,

    Yup you could replace it it regular sugar but just make sure the sugar is totally in cooperate into the butter before adding the flour.

  15. They look so yummy. I hope it's ok with you if I pin this to my Nutella board, not to forget to make them :-)
