There’s something incredibly addicting about Banana Nutella Cupcakes. Everyone loves banana cake and with this recipe, you’ll get that wonderful banana flavor paired with decadent chocolate hazelnut frosting. It’s so much better than just plain chocolate frosting and the banana cupcakes are so easy to make, you will want them all the time.
I took some time to re-photograph this recipe that is over two years old. My photography has improved greatly over the years and I love to see the evolution of my photos.
I make these banana cupcakes all the time and my favorite way to enjoy them is in banana cake. That was up until I recently retested this banana Nutella version. I’m forever converted!
The recipe isn’t too fancy. It’s actually very simple and straightforward.
I used my trusted banana cupcake recipe and topped it with my new and improved Nutella Frosting. It’s by far the best flavor combination I’ve ever experienced.
The cupcakes are light, springy, and full of banana flavor. They sort of remind me of banana bread only not as dense. And they always get rave reviews when I make them.
The combination of Nutella and banana is quite epic. I’ve seen banana bread with Nutella swirl and it was quite drool-worthy. So, I knew I had to pair the two together in a cupcake.
I’m so thankful it turned out as amazing as it did.
Slather the frosting over the cupcakes and prepare for an incredible flavor rush. I promise you will love these.
