I’ll give you a little warning before you make this cake. It’s rich, it’s full on and it’s for true chocolate lovers. It’s really gooey and has a surprise centre of soft, creamy Nutella just for extra decadence!
I make this recipe in a baking tray so it can be cut into squares to share out.
You need 16 tablespoons of Nutella and it’s easiest to spray the measuring spoon with some oil beforehand to make it simpler to measure out without ending up covered in sticky Nutella 🙂
Can you imagine, you just need 3 ingredients to make these quick and delicious brownies?! That’s it, just 3 main ingredients and you will have gorgeous, squidgy brownies in about 30 minutes. It’s great to make rich, decadent brownies but sometimes, you just want a quick brownie fix without any hassle and this, I promise, will become your “go to” recipe exactly for that reason. They have Nutella in them so if you have a nut allergy, sadly these can’t be for you 🙁
So if you’re ready, just get your 3 ingredients, bowl and 8″ x 8″ tray out and let the magic begin …. it will be ready to bake before the oven has heated up fully!
This recipe basically uses up one large jar of Nutella between the cupcakes and the icing. You can also use some melted Nutella to drizzle on top of the finished cupcakes.
I don’t use Nutella any longer and that’s a personal choice but there are lots of alternatives to choose from which you will find in the Health Food section in supermarkets, also with the peanut butters & spreads section and in all Health Stores.
Because there’s sour cream in the ingredients, you get a really moist and light result which is a pleasant surprise as small cupcakes can suffer from over baking and drying out..
