Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes

So those of you that know me well, know that I am absolutely crap at baking.

Seriously terrible.

I mean one time I baked a cake which came out of the oven with no middle. Don't ask how it happened because I haven't the foggiest.

So for me to be able to bake these cupcakes that not only look gorgeous but taste amazing, is a huge feat.

And so I thought if there is anything I should share with you,  it should definitely be this.

The original recipe is from Tastemade and I will link that below, but honestly, I had to tweak it a lot for this recipe to actually work.

Anyway here it is:


  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 125 g  butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 12 Ferraro Rocher
  • 12 cupcake wrappers
  • 200g butter 
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 150g black chocolate, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of Nutella


    Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6.
    Cream together the butter and sugar. Add in one egg at a time and whisk. Then add vanilla essence and put to one side.
    In another bowl, sift together plain flour, baking powder and cocoa powder.
    Slowly add the dry ingredients, then the milk to the butter mixture and mix.
    Use a tablespoon to spoon the mixture into the cupcake moulds and bake for 20-25 mins.
    My trick is to insert a toothpick into the cupcakes and if it comes out clean, then they're baked.

    For the buttercream, mix together the icing sugar, butter, melted chocolate and Nutella and refrigerate.
    Once the cupcakes have cooled, push a Ferrero Rocher into the centre of the cupcake.
    Use the buttercream to ice the cupcakes however you want. I just spread the icing onto the cupcake and decorated with pieces of Ferrero Rocher.
