Banana and Nutella cupcakes

So this is probably my last post from Bermuda - :( - but I have been baking a lot! Today I made some banana and Nutella cupcakes and they're probably my favourite bake of the month but it's a close call!
They're so easy to make and taste SO good - especially when they came straight out of the oven.
Annoyingly I didn't get any photos but despite tasting amazing, they're not that special aesthetically!

INGREDIENTS; Makes 10 cupcakes 

  • 4oz self raising flour
  • 4oz caster sugar 
  • 4oz butter (unsalted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana 
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1.5tbsp Nutella (melted)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180degreesC and place cupcake cases into tin.
  2. Begin by weighing out the flour, sugar, butter and eggs into a bowl. I used melted butter as I was mixing by hand but softened will work too if using an electric mixer. Beat until well combined and the mixture has lightened in colour. 
  3. Mash the banana well and fold into the batter along with the baking powder.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the cake cases but only fill half way - making sure there is mixture left over to top them up with.
  5. Take your slightly melted Nutella and spoon a teaspoon into each of the cases on top of the batter. 
  6. Divide up the rest of the mixture to top up the cupcake cases on top of the Nutella.
  7. Place tray in the oven and bake for between 10-15 minutes. A skewer should come out clean and they should be golden brown on top! 
  8. For prime enjoyment, eat when fresh from the oven! But they're still as good once cooled.
