White Chocolate Mud cupcakes with Nutella topping

white chocolate cupcakeWell, I did my  first bake-sale for the college arts fest very recently and it was startlingly successful. I baked 100 cupcakes and the whole place was washed out in two hours and yes they were sold out…My 2 best friends helped me out with money and crowd and it was a very picturesque experience for a first timer. I baked 4 range of cupcakes and I would love to acquaint one of them here. I literally had no clue about what topping I should do after baking this, that too at 1 am! All I had was a jar of nutella and other cake raw materials. Here is what I did!!

Gather these:

  • Butter    – 125 grams
  • white chocolate  –  150 grams grated
  • castor sugar      – 1 cup
  • milk            – 1/2 a cup
  • egg             -1 beaten lightly
  • all purpose flour  – 1 and 1/4 cup
  • baking powder    – 1  and 1/2 teaspoon
  • vanilla essence    – 1 teaspoon
  • coarsely crushed mixed nuts  – 1/2 cup (optional)

and for the NUTELLA TOPPING, i exactly don’t remember how much I took for total, well the proportion is

  • nutella   –  2 tablespoon
  • icing sugar  – 1 and half teaspoon

Start with:

  • Preheat your oven to 160 degrees.
  • In a saucepan, combine butter milk, grated white chocolate and castor sugar until a smooth mixture is obtained in low heat. Set it aside to cool down.
  • In the meanwhile sift the flour and baking powder two to 3 times, beat the egg with vanilla essence lightly.
  • In the liquid mixture already made, add the flour mixture and egg step by step and combine it uniformly.
  • Line your muffin tray with liners and fill them 1/3rd with the mixture and bake them for approximately 30 minutes and test the cake with a toothpick or a tester to check if it comes out clean. Turn them onto a wire rack to cool down for almost an hour.


  • For the topping, combine nutella and icing sugar and spread them evenly on the cooled cake..To give it a more divine and alluring look, add colored sprinkles on top and voila!

Enjoy your make!!
