what's the best way to get the flavour of hazelnuts in a cupcake batter? I've heard about ground hazelnuts but I don't have a food processor.... any tips? maybe using nutella or something?


most recipes I read just focus on the nutty flavor in the buttercream.


thank you

Does it happen to be chocolate hazelnut? My first thought was Nutella spread.

I'm a newbie and have no recipes, but perhaps there's a peanut butter cupcake recipe you could adapt? Just figured the hazelnuts are already ground up for you. I love Nutella and was thinking about trying piping it or using it as a filling in a chocolate cupcake. And now I'm hungry.

Yes I've also used Nutella and I also make a hazelnut whipped icing with Nutella too.
