Fall into temptation: Nutella Muffins

Things I should stop doing if I want to wear a bikini this summer: write "Nutella" in Pinterest's search box.

Really, it has to be considered as high-risk sport. If you don't believe, try it. I challenge you to try, and then, tell me if you have been able to resist the temptation to bake some of the delicious recipes that you can find in it. As you can see, I could not. Actually, the main problem has been to choose only one. But this can be fixed easily. There are more days to bake...

 This week temptation are those Nutella Muffins, although you can find it in Pinterest as self-frosting Nutella Cupcakes, but I find they're more muffins than cupcakes.

The recipe is super fast and easy (what more could you ask for?). It's just a dough mixed with Nutella at the end. Wanna try?


Ingredients, for 12 muffins

  • 55 gr butter
  • 50 ml vegetable oil
  • 165 gr sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 260 gr all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoon Nutella
Preheat oven to 160ºC (320ºF) and prepare a 12-hole cupcake pan with cupcakes liners (you can also grease the pan and not use liners)

Beat the sugar, butter and oil until well combined. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat again.

In a bowl, mix flour and baking powder, add to the dough and mix at low speed until it's completely mixed.

Divide the dough between the 12 cupcake liners and add half tablespoon of Nutella. With a stick, mix the Nutella with the dough making a swirl.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, remove form the oven and wait 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and let them cold in a rack. You can eat the muffins before they're completely cold.
