I had the sudden urge to bake something the other day despite the fact that I did not have a lot of time on hand. These Nutella Swirl Cupcakes looked perfect. They are easy, not so sweet, and bake up exactly twelve. I promised my husband they would whip up in ten minutes. In the end, it took around 15 but I hate to say that’s partially due to me dropping an eggshell in the mixer while it was still spinning. Yucks. Thank goodness it was a brown shelled egg.
Warning – the batter is thick. It makes it tricky to swirl the Nutella, but it doesn’t have to be perfect does it! The cakes are really quite dense in the end, but are still lovely. Perfect for when you want something not so sweet.
