Delicious Nutella and Strawberry Meringue Cupcakes Recipe

Indulge in these heavenly meringue cupcakes filled with luscious Nutella and fresh strawberries. A perfect blend of crispy meringue, creamy hazelnut spread, and juicy fruit!


  • Baking spray
  • 8 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 24 strawberries, hulled and sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F (93°C). Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by spraying with baking spray, lining with cupcake liners, and spraying again.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites, vinegar, and salt on medium-low speed for 30 seconds. Increase to medium-high and beat until soft peaks form (2-3 minutes). Gradually add sugar-cornstarch mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. Continue mixing until stiff, glossy peaks form (about 2 minutes). Fold in vanilla extract.
  4. Pipe meringue into prepared tin using a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch star or plain tip. Create mounds about 1-inch above the edge.
  5. Bake for 1 1/2 hours until firm and dry. Turn off oven, prop door open, and let cupcakes sit for an additional hour.
  6. Carefully remove cupcakes from tin. Use a serrated knife to cut off tops where the liner meets the cupcake base.
  7. Fill each cupcake with 2 tablespoons Nutella and 2 sliced strawberries. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if desired.
