These cupcakes mix the chocolaty flavor of Nutella (I used a different brand, but it was just as delicious) with the flavor of sweet ripe bananas. It's like chocolaty banana bread cupcakes!
I made the cupcakes exactly as the recipe said with the exception that I didn't include any hazelnuts because my boyfriend and his family don't like them. I mixed both ripe bananas and the Nutella in the batter itself... the batter was delicious! (Yes, I ate some un-baked batter... who doesn't?!)
The recipe also advised to add a dab of Nutella on top of the cupcakes before baking them...
I'm SO glad I followed that advise because the cupcakes turned out with gooey chocolate Nutella on top of it's crusty borders... Yum!
The cupcakes turned out delicious! My only complaint was that they turned out a little too gooey for my taste... but the flavor was delicious! I am no expert, but I would give these cupcakes a 7 out of 10 (flavor was awesome but just a tad too gooey... but that was probably my own fault rather than the recipe itself)
One of the best things about baking something with bananas is that the entire kitchen smells DELICIOUS! I love the smell of fresh banana bread (or banana Nutella cupcakes in this case).
Although they were a little too gooey for my taste, other people thought they were PERFECT! My dad, for example, rated them a 9 out of 10! He was just delighted with them!
