I know there are a lot of arguments about Nutella at the moment, but let’s be honest, it is probably the most indulgent spread in the world, one you actually don’t need to spread but can just dip in with a spoon (or your finger) and it gives you immediate satisfaction. In Italy children have Nutella on bread for breakfast or as a snack when they come back from school so it is THE comfort food for us.
Didn’t think I would need to cook anything with it but I’m so glad I tried this (my son had the idea) because this muffins are truly amazing!
And as usual it’s a quick and super easy recipe, here you go:
* 100 g of butter
* 2 eggs
* 250 ml of milk
* vanilla extract
* 370 g of flour
* 180 g of sugar
* 16 g of baking powder
* a pinch of salt
* 150 g Nutella
Method: 1. Melt 100g of butter in the microwave (or a small pan).
2. When it has cooled down, add 2 eggs and 250 ml of whole milk and a splash of vanilla extract (always in my sweet recipes!) and whisk together (I used the whisk of my loved kitchen aid, but a hand mixer will do).
3. Add then 370 g of all pourpose flour, 180 g of caster sugar, 16 g of baking powder and a pinch of salt. Whisk together but not too long, don’t worry if it has some clumps in it, it’s fine. 4. Depending on the size of your muffin tins you will end up with 18-24 of them. Fill the muffin forms for 3/4 with the mixture. 5. And now, this is the moment you were waiting for: Nutella! Add a teaspoon of Nutella (you will need about 150 g for this recipe) in the middle of the muffin and swirl it around with a stick (a toothpick for example). 6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Let them cool slightly before taking them out of the forms.
Enjoy this delicious muffins and their incredible Nutella bites with a glass of milk to take you back to childhood!
