For making these stuffed cinnamon muffins all you need is a bowl and a whisk, and in about 10 min you got a batter ready to be baked. That's all, so simple.
These nutella stuffed muffins taste best slightly warm and I promise you that you will fall in love with them once you taste it. I insist that you do not skip the cinnamon sugar topping as that extra crunch along with the buttery taste is the highlight of these muffins.
Here's the easy recipe for sinful muffins.
You will get 6 large muffins with this recipe, but I made them mini muffins and I used the rest of the batter to make a mini loaf.
1/2 cup sugar (use an equal mix of brown and white sugar)
1/2 cup milk
Sieve the dry mix once
11/2 flour (I used an equal mix of whole wheat and plain flour)
11/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
For the topping'
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl
2 tbsp. melted butter to drizzle on the muffins
Nutella for stuffing the muffins
> Then add in the egg and whisk again for 2 min on high.
> Now add in the milk and vanilla and whisk again for 2 min till everything is well combined.
> This is the tricky part so be careful, you need to slowly fold in the flour, do it in 3 batches.
No need to over mix, if the batter looks lumpy no problem.
If you mix it all it once and forget to be gentle you will have chewy muffins. So be gentle please,ok?
> Now bake at 200 c for 5 min then reduce the temperature to 180 c and bake for 15/20 min or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
tip > make sure you do not open your oven before 15 min has passed.
> Once they are out, drizzle some melted butter on top and then sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top of them.That's all, it is ready.
Do the same if you making a loaf. Just bake for extra 5 min and your done.
