About This Recipe

In previous blog posts, I posted banana and pear muffins recipes in detail. This time I went for a chocolate muffin with Nutella. The muffin is actually a small quick bread with a firmer texture than cake and is baked at a higher temperature. Due to the higher temperature, it is not uncommon for the muffin surface to crack.

What Do You Need to Make Nutella Muffins?

  • Nutella: You will need 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Nutella spread for each muffin.
  • Flour: For this recipe, you need all-purpose flour.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder causes muffins to rise. Using the right amount of baking powder in cakes and muffins is very important.
  • Vegetable oil: Vegetable or sunflower oil makes the texture of muffins soft and moist.
  • Egg: In this recipe, only 1 egg is used.
  • Sugar: Use granulated sugar for Nutella muffins.
  • Vanilla extract: Like all muffins and cakes that we bake, vanilla extract is essential.


How to Make Nutella Muffins Like a Pro?

  • Before starting, gather the ingredients and place them on the countertop.
  • Measure the required ingredients accurately.
  • Make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature and fresh.
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients with a spatula, and don’t mix the batter too much. Mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls and then add them together.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
