Nutella and Cinnamon Muffins

READY IN: 35mins




  • In a large bowl of an electric or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed.
  • Mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Gently stir in, until barely combined, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and chocolate drops.
  • Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of batter into the greased or lined with muffin paper liners muffin cavity. Layer with 1 teaspoon Nutella in the center and spoon another heaping tablespoon of batter on top. Repeat layering batter and Nutella into each muffin tin (8-9 muffins). Fill the empty muffin tins halfway with water for even baking.
  • Bake the muffins at 220?C for 5 minutes. Reduce temperature to 180?C and bake for an additional 13-17 minutes until batter is set. Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the cinnamon-sugar topping. Melt the butter. In a separate small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the top of each muffin into the melted butter and dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Swirl them around in the cinnamon-sugar a bit to make sure you get a thick coating. Set upright on cooling rack.
