Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Muffins

Yummy tea time or Sunday breakfast treat

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 teaspoons Nutella

FOR THE CINNAMON SUGAR TOPPING

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 180° (160° if you’re using a fan oven). Line a 12 muffin/cupcake tray with paper liners. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt.

In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.

Scoop a spoonful of batter evenly into the muffin tray. Drop 1 teaspoon Nutella into the center of each cup. Top with remaining batter to completely cover the filling.

Place in the oven and bake for 13 – 15 mins. Make the topping while it’s baking – combine the cinnamon and sugar.

When the muffins are done, cool for 10 minutes and dip the muffin crown into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
