I developed this vegan hazelnut cupcakes recipe for a cupcake wars benefit event and I wanted to choose a more unique flavor than vanilla, chocolate or red velvet that many people expect when making cupcakes. It was a risk but I found some hazelnut extract and hazelnut butter on amazon and this was my first time using those in a recipe so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Not to mention baking 300 cupcakes with such hard to find at the local store flavors was going to be a risk but I was up for the challenge! this is the recipe I came up with, one of three I picked from. Hope you enjoy it.
I used this super concentrated Hazelnut extract so the recipe doesn’t call for a lot
Bake cupcakes on the middle rack of the oven for even baking.
