Nutella muffins

There has been some time since I baked some muffins. So, why not to try something special... mmm something with chocolate but also light. As I was not pointing to muffins that looks more like brownies I decided to hide the chocolate inside. I have used Nutella but this is not a commercial, you can pick any similar one or even pure chocolate you like.

When you bake them in advance I would advice to heat them for 15-20 seconds in the microwave. They will become soft and the chocolate inside will melt nicely. It is heavenly ...

Here is the recipe:

  • 125g sour cream
  • 280g flour
  • 100g butter (room temperature)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 100ml whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100g Nutella (from the refrigerator)

  1. Mix all ingredients except Nutella until well combined.
  2. Fill with the mixture only 2/3 the cupcakes pans.
  3. Use a melon knife to cut little nuts of Nutella. (it looks like an icecream scoop but is smaller). Any teaspoon will do the work as well.
  4. Push the chocolate nuts into the center of each muffins. That's why you need Nutella to be hard from the refrigerator.
  5. Take a spoon and cover completely the chocolate nut with composition from the sides.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven at 180ºC.

The recipe was inspired from Marmiton les meilleures recettes de pâtisserie et desserts de Marmiton, page 167.
