  • Yield: 12


Cupcake Batter
  • 100 g softened butter
  • 2.5 ml vanilla paste or 5 ml vanilla essence
  • 115 g castor sugar
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 160 g self-raising flour
  • 30 ml milk
Chocolate Ganache Icing
  • 250 ml cream
  • 400 g dark chocolate, broken into small chunks
  • 100 g Nutella
How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. To make the Cupcakes Batter
  3. Place all the ingredients into a cake mixer and beat until soft and fluffy. Spoon the batter into the paper cases.
  4. Baking
  5. Bake for 12–15 minutes or until a metal skewer inserted into the centre of a cupcake comes out clean. While the cupcakes are baking, make the icing.
  6. To make the Chocolate Ganache Icing
  7. Place the cream in a small saucepan over low heat and scald (heat until just before boiling). Add the chocolate chunks, stir until the chocolate has melted and you have a smooth ganache. Set aside to cool completely.
  8. Assembling the Cupcakes
  9. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Using a small serrated knife, cut a nest out of each cupcake. Soften the Nutella slightly in the microwave and spoon into the nests, and then ice the cupcakes with chocolate ganache.
