I decided to do some baking today to share tomorrow night at my friend Abbey’s bring your own craft night (I bring knitting). This self-frosting Nutella cupcake recipe was one of the first things I found on Pinterest.
This was really easy to pull together. I ended up doubling the recipe because we needed to try them today for quality control purposes and Mike thought it would be rude to not bring a full dozen cupcakes.
The batter was thick like the recipe said so that the Nutella could be swirled on top.
They were a little more dense than I like and could be a little more moist. I went back and read the recipe to see what the comments said. I realized that I left out half the fat! I never put in the oil, only the butter. So, I guess they’re healthier than the original?
That said, they are still really good. And anything that’s lacking because of the missing fat can be made up with a glass of milk on the side. I still plan to share so we’ll see what my fellow crafters think tomorrow night.
