Nutella Cupcake

Feel like to bake this weekend...
While searching for cake/cookies recipe, I stumbled on lots and lots of websites which featured cupcakes. I thought.. why not. Since usually the recipe is for 12 cupcakes, they are small. There are only 2 people in the house, so I'm not looking forward for a big cake. So cupcake it is! I spent Saturday getting all the ingredients.
Before that, I have to decide on one recipe from all the recipes what I found on the net. For first timer, I thought Nutella cupcake could be the winner. Nutella always taste good.. so I can't go wrong there!

So here is the recipe:

Nutella Frosted Cupcakes
10 tbsp(140 grams) butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups (200 grams) sifted ap flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Nutella, approx. 1/3 cup

Preheat oven to 325F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Don't worry if the batter doesn't look smooth. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.
Using an ice cream scoop, fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full, if you're not using a scoop. Top each cake with 1 1/2 tsp Nutella. Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the nutella.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 12.

Here is the cupcake! Just spread the top with nutella and sprinkle some multicolor chocolate rice... (The cupcake burnt a bit coz I put on quite high temperature huhuhu)
