Nutella Cupcakes

I teach cake decorating at our local craft store. It's a pretty fun little side job that gives me a reason to get me out of the house for a little bit each week. Part of the curriculum I teach requires me to make cupcakes one week and a cake the next week. Being generally opposed to settling for cake mixes and bored of the usual vanilla and chocolate options, I am often on the look out for new recipes to take to class with me. This week was no different. I got it into mind that I wanted to have Nutella cupcakes to take with me. Who doesn't like Nutella, right?
After much searching I didn't find anything I was satisfied with so I revamped a recipe myself and got this! Oh my goodness! You have to try them! For class I covered them with the class buttercream but at home I just put a dollop of extra Nutella on top. Amazing! Try them! You'll love them.

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup  nutella
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix in the oil, Nutella, eggs and vanilla until completely incorporated. Should be nice and thick at this point. Slowly mix in the sour cream and milk until a uniform consistency. Pour into liner-filled cupcake pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, using a toothpick test to check for done-ness. Top with whatever sounds great and enjoy!
