Today it’s the 2nd of Advent. A bit more than 2 weeks left until it’s Christmas. 😀 I have partly spent some of my Sunday evening with baking these delicious Nutella Banana Cupcakes with Vanilla and Nutella Frosting on….mmmmm… 😛 😀   Definitely worth a try! 😀

Nutella Banana Cupcakes



Recipe (makes 8 muffins & 4 cupcakes; for more cupcakes just triple the frosting recipe) 


  •  70 gr unsalted butter
  • 0.75 dl caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 dl plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 0.75 dl whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 banana

Vanilla & Nutella Frosting 

  • 1 cup icing/confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 40 gr unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella

For decoration

  • Fiddes Payne’s choco decs delicious sugar shapes

Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C (325 degrees F) Gas 3. Place 12 paper cases onto a baking sheet.

Stir the sugar and butter until fluffy in a bowl. Add the egg and continue to whisk. Pour  the vanilla sugar, baking powder and flour into the bowl.  Add the milk and the Nutella and continue mixing for a couple more minutes until the mixture is smooth.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full.

Cut the banana into 12 slices and put one slice on each muffin.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 15- 20 minutes.

Leave the muffins to cool slightly in the pan before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Turn the mixer down to slow speed.

Combine the milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture a little at a time. Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes.

Then layered vanilla frosting and Nutella into a piping bag to create a marbled effect for the topping.

Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes and decorate with Fiddes Payne’s choco decs delicious sugar shapes.

  1. ONG they look delicious. I may have try that. I need to change over the recipe to Cups and oz. We love Nutella on anything!! 😉 I was so thankful when we were able to get it here in the states.

  2. These look soooo good! Reading that in the office on Monday morning and wish I could have one to help me through the stressful day to come…

    • Awww thank you Birgit! Yeah, wish you could have one too. I have one saved in the fridge. Shame we don’t live closer to each other, otherwise I would have given you one. 🙂 Hope you are feeling well!
