Well, I put down my fork long enough to take this photo of my Nutella cupcake. There are no others left. (Tall Husband has taken a survey of Nutella lovers and has decided it's a "female phenomenon.")

My friend Linda has been telling me that cupcake shops are sweeping the country. She e-mailed, telling of one Houston shop and their Nutella cupcake:

Linda wrote:
Annie - Cute Husband and I went out for dessert the other night and we wound up at Crave Cupcakes in that upscale shopping plaza on Post Oak and 610! [Uptown Park] They had about 10 different kinds of cupcakes - and sitting there like a jewel in the case was a row of cupcakes that had a small sign indicating what type they were - Nutella! Needless to say, I plunked down my $3.25 and sank my teeth into a delicious morsel! Not knowing who else in the world would care about my consumption of sugar - I immediately thought of you! We must share this experience together sometime in the near future.

Linda and I have not made it to Crave Cupcakes yet; the Nutella cupcake above is one of a dozen I made for our "National Night Out" neighborhood block party last night. The recipe, "Self Frosting Nutella Cupcakes" is from Baking Bites. They are wonderful!

Later, I'll let you know how
Crave Cupcakes' Nutella fix compares.


  1. I'm in the Nutella Fan Club! And I have a great recipe for Nutella cookies, if you're interested.

  2. Mamacita!

    I would love to have your Nutella cookie recipe.

  3. YUM!! They sound good,and simple to make :) I was at Costco the other day and I saw two enormous containers of Nutella and thought of you! I almost bought them,but there are only three of us in the house and the containers were just too large.

  4. Annie - gotta have that receipe. Nutella rules.
