Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy,about 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Don’t worry if the batter doesn’t look smooth. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.
  3. Using an ice cream scoop or spoon , fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full, if you’re not using a scoop. Top each cake with 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella. Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the nutella.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
  5. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

i added a tbsp of cocoa and 2 tbspns greek yoghurt, didnt need to swirl but left a lttle mixture so i could top the muffins, forming little nutella pockets. served with a dollop of ganache on top. was a great quick recipe

These came out very well!! I liked the toothpick swirling method, it spread out the nutella throughout the cake. But the cake itself was just a bit too dry and a little plain. The dry part is maybe explained by the fact that I overcooked it a bit.
