Chocolate Hazelnut

I really like these cupcakes because they're not extremely sweet like cupcakes usually are. They have a very chocolaty cake and a light and not extremely sweet chocolate-hazelnut frosting. 
These take about an hour to make.  

What you need: 

for the cake: 
3 eggs
2.5dl sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
50g unsalted butter
0.25 dl milk
0.75 dl creme fraiche 
2 tablespoons cold coffee
3.5 dl flour
2 tablespoons baking powder 
4 tablespoons cocoa 
a pinch of salt
100g dark chocolate 

for the frosting: 
200g cream cheese
2 dl hazelnut powder
50g melted chocolate 
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 dl confectioners sugar

How you make them: 
Start with the cake: 
Step1: Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
Step2: Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar in a bowl so it turns to a white fluffy mixture. 
Step3: Melt the butter.
Step4: Let the butter cool and add the milk, creme fraiche and cold coffee. 
Step5: Combine the two mixtures. 
Step6: In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, cocoa and  salt.
Stpe7: Add the dry mixture to the other one one dl at a time. 
Step8. Melt the chocolate and add it to the batter. 
Stpe9: Fill two thirds of the cupcake liners with batter and bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes. Take them out and let them cool 

Then make the frosting: 
Mix the ingredients together and then put the frosting in the fridge for about 15 minutes so that it gets a little harder. 

Then assemble them: 
Pipe the frosting on top of the cake and finish of by sprinkling some grinded hazelnuts on top.
