  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 18 muffin cups or line with paper baking cups. Stir together the sugar, flour, ground hazelnuts, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. Beat together the eggs, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until moistened, then stir in the water until batter is smooth. Batter may be a bit thin. Pour into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cool, frost with the chocolate-hazelnut spread, and sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts to garnish.

I just spent more time cleaning the oven! This was a complete mess. The recipe said runny it was more like a flood. I'll try the hazelnut recipe again but from a different book.

These cupcakes did not turn out for me. But I'm pretty sure it was all my fault!! After putting all of the ingredients together the batter was really, really runny. So I left out the 1/3 cup o...

This was an interesting experience. We decided to cut it in half. Even so it made 12 not 9 ENORMOUS cupcakes (but at least they didn't spill into the oven)! They were tasty, but top anything wit...

This recipe didn't turn out for me at all. I followed the recipe exactly and the cupcakes caved in. When pouring the batter how full do you recommend? I think maybe I just needed to put a little...

The ingredients are great but with all the modifications I had to make I decided to create my owen recipe.

I really wish I'd read the reviews first. What a waste of ingredients!
