Edie Banks’s Famous Nutella Cupcakes
The heroine for Right Wrong Guy, Edie Banks, is a whiz in the kitchen. She opens up a cute, funky coffee shop in downtown Brightwater called Haute Coffee. One of her customers favorite treats is her Nutella cupcakes.
For the Chocolate Cake Base:
(makes 12 cupcakes)
· 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
· 2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
· 3/4 cup white sugar
· 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
· a pinch of salt
· 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
· 1/2 cup whole milk
· 1 egg
· 1/2 cup Nutella
For the Frosting:
(enough for 12 cupcakes)
· 2 cups confectioners' sugar
· 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
· 2 tablespoons milk
· 1/3 cup Nutella
Preheat the oven to 350 (F)
Mix 3/4 plus 2 tablespoons flour, 2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3/4 teaspoons baking powder, 3/4 cup sugar, pinch of salt, and 3 tablespoons butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) and beat on slow speed until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.
Pour 1/2 cup milk into the flour mixture, beating well until all the ingredients are combined
Beat in egg
Spoon the batter into the cupcake tins and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
When the cupcakes are cool, hollow out a small section in the center of each one and fill with a dollop of Nutella. Then frost and try not to eat the whole batch in one sitting.
Oh my goodness, Lia! Nutella is so tasty, and these cupcakes sound decadent and delicious! Thanks for sharing and congratulations on the latest Brightwater release. ~Grace
RIGHT WRONG GUY
Release Date: Aug 4th, 2015
The fun and flirty second installment in Lia Riley’s fantastic Brightwater series.
Sometimes two wrongs can make a right...
Bad boy wrangler, Archer Kane, lives fast and loose. Words like responsibility and commitment send him running in the opposite direction. Until a wild Vegas weekend puts him on a collision course with Eden Bankcroft-Kew, a New York heiress running away from her blackmailing fiancé…the morning of her wedding.
Eden has never understood the big attraction to cowboys. Give her a guy in a tailored suit any day of the week. But now all she can think about is Mr. Rugged Handsome, six-feet of sinfully sexy country charm with a pair of green eyes that keeps her tossing and turning all night long.
Archer might be the wrong guy for a woman like her, but she's not right in thinking he'll walk away without fighting for her heart. And maybe, just maybe, two wrongs can make a right.
Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.
A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.
