Vanilla Cupcakes

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. With the mixer on low speed, add the eggs, 1 at a time. Add the vanilla extract and oil. Mix well.
  3. Add flour in three parts alternately with the milk in two parts, beginning and ending with flour Mix until just combined.
  4. Fill the cupcakes liners about 1/2 full. Bake at 350 for 13 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick tester comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes completely.
  5. To fill the cupcakes, add nutella to a piping bag with a bismarck tip. Insert the tip in the center of the cupcake and fill it with nutella. If you don't have the tip, you could use a paring knife to cut a cone-shaped circle from the top of the cupcake. Spoon a dollop of nutella into the cupcake and put the top back.

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
