Nutella Devils

Nutella Devils

Who can resist the aroma of the hazelnut and chocolate paste called Nutella? Even only the name can provoke our test buds :)___ ....And what if Nutella becomes devil's food cupcakes? A double dose of pleasure, I think.

These cupcakes are a combination of Martha Stewart and Hummingbird Bakery creations. The base cake is Martha's devil's food cupcakes. But I adjusted the amount of sour cream to see how it would affect the finished goods. For the frosting, I took the recipe from "The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook." But I reduced the amount of icing sugar to control the overall taste not to be too sweet.

The frosting somehow were too sweet for me. So I did another round with even less sugar. Also the unsalted butter, as the original recipe calls for, was replaced with salted one to balance the sweetness of Nutella.

The result:
~ Devil's Food Cupcakes turned out great! The texture was like feather -- light & soft, almost melted in the mouth. Loving it! I'll definitely repeat baking and baking them again :)
~ Nutella Frosting (the second round) were easier to have for me than the original one.
~ The overall was yummy! Devil's food cupcakes went well with Nutella frosting. I had 3-4 of them at a time. Heheheheh. They are such devils!!

PS. For an extra mile, try Monkey Devil's Food Cupcakes here for the base cake. Bananas go well with Nutella and chocolate too.
