Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Muffins

HAPPY SUNDAY BAKING!

Sundays are my favourite days where I usually dedicate myself to baking some yummy treats ready for the week ahead. To get us straight on the way, I chose this recipe (one of my classics) as I love cinnamon, muffins and chocolate… what better way than to combine all three?!

These are so yummy and such a delicious munch when you are feeling a little stressed throughout the week with work or what not. They taste extra good when you warm them up in the microwave for 15 seconds! They always go down a treat and are SO easy to make… and they look pretty don’t you think?

I always like to try and explore muffin recipes and sometimes struggle to find the perfect combination and amount of ingredients… these really hit the spot. I love the addition of nutmeg – creating a donut-like muffin (which of course are my favourite!)

So here’s the recipe:

Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Muffins

75g unsalted butter

100g granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla essence

120ml milk

190g plain flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Pot of Nutella

Topping

50g granulated sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

45g unsalted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together
  3. Mix in the egg, vanilla extract and milk.
  4. Gently stir in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until just combined
  5. Spoon one tablespoon of batter into muffin case, layer with 1 teaspoon of Nutella in the centre and then another tablespoon of batter on top.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes at this temperature then reduce to 180 degrees and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  7. Allow muffins to cool slightly
  8. Meanwhile make the cinnamon-sugar topping by melting the butter. Stir the sugar and cinnamon together in a separate bowl
  9. Dip the top of each muffin into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  10. Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container up to 1 week. Muffins freeze well, up to 3 months.
