i had a show last night at a venue i've been wanting to play for a looong time. it was great! we all dressed up and played so well, to a big audience (well, big for us..meaning 30 people). follow my band on twitter.
this is us before the show. aren't we gorgeous?
the other day, i made these amazing nutella cupcakes. i highly recommend making them. here's the recipe:
Self Frosted Nutella Cupcakes
10 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla essense
1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Nutella, 12 teaspoons. (1 teaspoon for each cupcakes)
Preheat oven to 325F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy,about 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Don’t worry if the batter doesn’t look smooth. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.
Using an ice cream scoop or spoon , fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full, if you’re not using a scoop. Top each cake with 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella. Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the nutella.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 12 delicious cupcakes.
and here's some pictures of my experience with them:
they obviously turned out really well.
