  • 1 1/4 cup sour cherries
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 360F (180C). Line muffin pan with muffin cases and set aside.
  • If you're using fresh cherries wash, stem, and pit the cherries or if you're using jarred cherries, drain them.
  • In a bowl mix together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and chopped hazelnuts. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl of an electric or stand mixer, whisk the egg, then add sugar, the egg, vegetable oil, milk, and Nutella. Mix until combined.
  • Gently stir in flour mixture but don't overmix - stir until just combined otherwise your muffins will be dry.
  • Add the cherries to the mixture and use a spatula to stir them in.
  • Evenly distribute the batter between the muffin cases and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until batter is set. Use a skewer to test if the muffins are done.
  • Allow cupcakes to cool for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • I decorated my cupcakes with Nutella and a mixture of cherry juice and powdered sugar.
