  • Total Time: 30 mins


  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • a pinch of Salt (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar (adjust according sweetness required)
  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk (*note 1)
  • 1/3 cup Nutella, melted in Microwave for 10 seconds. (use more or less according to taste)
  • extra Water (only if batter is too thick)

For decoration – optional

  • Nutella
  • Funfetti or Sprinkles or Chocolate Chips
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  • If you don’t have buttermilk, beat 1/3 cup curd well and add water to loosen it to make 1/2 cup of buttermilk.


  1. Line mini cupcake molds with liners. Preheat oven to 160 C.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix all purpose flour, salt, baking soda and sugar.
  3. Add the oil, buttermilk, melted nutella.
  4. Mix well until the dry flour mix is incorporated into the wet and you have a semi thick batter.
  5. Pour about a teaspoon of the batter into each mold. (until mold is 3/4th full)
  6. Bake at 160 C for 20 minutes or until the brownies are fully cooked through.
  7. Let them cool for 20-30 minutes. Frost each cupcake with a teaspoon (or as much as you want) of Nutella
  8. Sprinkle colorful funfetti or sprinkles or any edible decorations of your choice. Or you can simply dust powdered sugar on them and serve
  9. Serve immediately or refrigerate upto 2 days


  1. This batter will make about 24-30 mini cupcakes (depending upon your molds). Use the same batter to make 3-4 normal sized cupcakes or a 6 inch brownie.
  2. Frosting is optional. You can use powdered sugar to dust on top instead of nutella.
  3. Mini cupcakes will bake faster. If you’re making as a brownie or normal cupcake, the baking timing would vary.
  4. For a microwave convection oven, reduce the temperature to 150 C or even 140 C to prevent a crust from forming on top. You will have to cook longer though.
  5. Stays well for 2 days, but nutella will harden so keep at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving
