As promised, here is a great quick recipe for cupcakes that EVERYONE will love. They are a bit expensive to make because of the Nutella, but since when did decadence not come at a price? You could substitute the good stuff with that cheap imitation stuff – but you know it won't be the same. So go on – spoil yourself! You need:

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
140 g butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3 medium eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup Nutella

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Next, line 12 muffin tins with cupcake or muffin liners. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl and leave aside. Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl till texture is light. Add in the eggs, one at a time followed by the vanilla extract. Gradually add in the dry ingredients into the wet and mix till well-mixed. Fill up each liner with batter till about 3/4 full. Finally top up each cupcake with approximately 1 tbsp of Nutella. Use a toothpick to swirl the Nutella into the batter. Pop in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
