My first encounter with this life-changing, has-its-own-food-group-on-the-pyramid, staple, I was a freshman in college. I had never heard of it before (which let's be honest, was a miracle for my chubby little self growing up) and had become a skeptic. It took me about a month until I gave in and tried it. And I've never looked back.
I make these often, especially when I'm asked to bring something. They are relatively easy, huge crowd pleaser, and just yummy. I made this batch for one of my good friend's birthday. It's all she dreams about at night...
This recipe is one that I've played around with. I went through somewhat of a cupcake phase, and this magic was created. Please enjoy - the cake is moist, and stays that way for days; the Nutella buttercream frosting is sinful; and the smile that comes from it all is just the sprinkles on the cupcake.
