1I preheated Slow Cooker for about 15 mins

2Tea Towel under lid.

3My slow cooker seems to cook quick, so keep an eye on them, I lifted lid to just peek and check how they were rising a few times, Careful not to let too much steam out though.


5Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.

6Add butter, Nutella, egg whites, vanilla, sour cream and milk and mix on medium speed until smooth.

7Fill cupcake liners a little more than half way.

8Bake 50 mins to an hours pending on your slow cooker with a tea towel under the lid, The cupcakes are light brown in colour.

9While cupcakes cool, make icing.


11Mix butter together for 1 minute on medium,

12Add 2 cups of Icing sugar and mix until smooth.

13Add Nutella and 1 tbsp water and 1tbs cream, mix until smooth.

14Add icing sugar and 1 tbsp water and mix until smooth.

15Ice cupcakes.


17Please note, The butter may make the cupcake batter slightly lumpy, You can leave for a few mins and then mix again for another 30 seconds.
