Eggless Chocolate Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting

Two years ago, I shared a Vegan Chocolate Cake recipe on the blog, and it is, by far, not just a favourite with all my readers, but my ‘go to’ recipe too. No eggs, no butter, but the cake is so moist and stays that way even after being refrigerated… perhaps even tastes better by the following day. For those of you who have tasted Goriawala’s Eggless Chocolate Cake in Mumbai, the recipe will totally remind you of it.

It’s no wonder then that I’ve used it to make these Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes too! Of course, with Ferrero Rochers and Nutella Buttercream, this recipe is no longer a vegan one, but remains vegetarian and eggless. It’s perfect for Nutella-lovers because there’s Nutella in the Ferrero Rochers that are tucked into the cupcakes and on top of the buttercream, and of course, it’s a Nutella Buttercream!

I cannot insist enough on the importance of freezing the Ferrero Rocher’s that will be inside the cupcakes… leave them in the freezer for a good few hours and take them out and unwrap them only when you are ready to place them in the cupcake batter and top with more batter. But don’t fill the batter all-the-way or else it will overflow.

Once the cupcakes are completely cool, frost them and add another Ferrero Rocher on top. You’ll notice that I’ve added some cocoa powder to make it extra-chocolaty. Did you know that I have my own YouTube Channel too? And I’ve made a video of this recipe too! And if you’re in the mood for some decadent Triple Chocolate Brownies, then head to The Quint where I’ve shared a recipe for awesome brownies!

Eggless Chocolate Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream
Moist Chocolate Cupcakes that are egg-less and stuffed with Ferrero Rocher. A dreamy Nutella Buttercream Frosting and topped with Ferrero Rocher too! You wouldn't be wrong to call these Double Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes 😉 . Goriawala is a famous cake-maker in Mumbai, I won't say that this chocolate cupcake is the same as their recipe, but tastes every bit as good as theirs :).

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Line a 6-cavity cupcake mould with cupcake liners.
  2. Dissolve the cocoa powder in the warm water & whisk until smooth and free of lumps.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the centre of these dry ingredients & pour oil and the cocoa-water mixture in this well. Whisk until smooth. Add the vinegar and whisk until combined.
  4. Put a little bit of the batter in each of the prepared cupcake liners. Place the Ferrero Rocher in each and scoop the batter to cover the chocolate but making sure that the liners are not more than three-fourth full or else they will overflow. Bake in oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cupcakes comes out clean.
  5. Once baked, place the cupcakes on a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. In a large bowl, place the unsalted butter, Nutella, icing sugar and cocoa powder and whisk together until combined.
  7. Frost the cooled cupcakes with buttercream and top with a Ferrero Rocher Chocolate.

Hi Tarika
Lovely recipe. I have a couple of questions. Please pardon my ignorance if I sound a little stupid but I am no professional baker and hence these questions come to my mind.
I was thinking of trying this recipe and wanted to ask if
1. Canola or sunflower oil can be replaced with any other cooking oil?
2. What size cup cake liners did you use? Were these mini or the big ones? Or the medium ones?

Hi Nupur! You can use any flavourless cooking oil – canola and sunflower are top of mind. I’m only aware of 2 sizes of cupcake liners – small and big – these are the ones I find easily at Arife in Mumbai. So the big ones have been used here. Hope this helps 🙂

Hi, Fantastic Recipe. Easy to make. However, it would be much better to follow and enjoy your presentation without the loud music. Makes concentrating tough.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I tried my hand at baking for the first time with your recipe for eggless Ferrero Rocher cupcakes and i came up trumps. So thanks a ton !!! Also, have you ever tried the walnut brownie sold at Chheda’s Dry Fruits opposite Matunga Station. My next aim and ambition is to try and make that. Can you help?
