Hazelnut cup cakes

I was wondering what else I can do with my balance ground hazelnut and I chanced upon this cupcake from Happy Flour's blog.

And am so glad to be able to clear my ground hazelnut with this cupcakes.....

Another alternative for afternoon tea with friends over for a chat.

110g unsalted butter (room temperature)
80g sugar
2 eggs
85g self-rising flour
25g ground hazelnut
1/2tsp vanilla essence
70g chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Line muffin tin with paper casing and set aside.
3. Sift flour into a mixer bowl.
4. Add sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla essence into the flour.
5. Beat the mixture until smooth and pale, about 2-3mins.
6. Fold in ground hazelnut and chocolate chips.
7. Spoon batter into the muffin tin until 70% full.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25mins.
9. Remove cupcakes from tin and cool on a wire rack.


  1. I love baking cakes with Hazelnuts too. Your cup cakes look moist and buttery. Love them.

  2. Looks really moist! I will bake this as I still have some ground hazelnut at home.

  3. Okay now I know what to do with the pack of hazelnuts I have! If time permits, will make this for Saturday's retreat.

  4. I'm sure these cuppies are delicious, especially with the hazel nuts!

  5. I have not tried baking with hazelnuts. Your cupcakes are so tempting I have to try one of these days. Thanks very much for sharing.

  6. hi chris,

    I have not tried using hazelnuts for baking yet. Are the dark speckles from the ground hazelnuts and is the hazelnut flavour strong? I sound very suaku here, haha. These cupcakes look good =]

  7. Hi Christine, Sonia, Anncoo - yeah, these cup cakes are quite moist and nice.

    Busygran- you can consider trying this out with your ground hazelnut.

  8. Cheah and MaryMoh - thank you.

    BakerTan - Yup, the dark speckles are from the hazelnut. Personally, I think the hazelnut is not too over-powering, ok.

  9. i've never made anything with ground hazelnuts, only ground almonds. Looking at ur pics, i am tempted to try! :)
