I LOVE Nutella. It’s always on my shopping list, and I use it all the time – baking or not. I love Nutella on toast, sandwiches, in porridge, on a spoon… 😉 But most of all, I do love using spreads in my recipes. For example, these chocolate muffins with their Nutella centres.

For these muffins, I’m using my favourite muffin recipe base. It is my go-to for muffins, and bread. The 2 teaspoons of baking powder makes these rise beautifully, but not too much. The buttermilk, and oil makes the batter so silky, and the muffins super moist, and tender. These are undoubtedly my favourite chocolate muffins!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (375g) plain flour
  • 3/4 cup (170g) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (175g) chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (100ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 - 24 teaspoons Nutella

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6. Spray or butter a 12-hole muffin pan, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin slots, filling only half way. Spoon 1 - 2 teaspoons of Nutella into the centres, then pour the rest of the batter over the tops.
  5. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted just off centre (to avoid Nutella) comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Going to make these today but have herd when you put nuttella in the middle of the muffin it sinks to the bottom of the muffin. Is there anything to stop this from happening

      The nutella didn’t sink for me. You should be fine 🙂 If you are concerned, you can use muffin cases!

    Hi Marsha, I have a batch of these in the oven as I sit here typing. I do have a question. How thick is the batter usually? I converted the recipe to GF and the batter was very thick and sticky. I normally don’t have issues with a straight over conversion with my GF flour blend but it was much thicker than other muffin batters. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll let you know how it went.

      Hi Lucy! My muffin batters are quite thick, which is how I like them 🙂 Thick batters help prevent the Nutella sinking to the bottom, too.

        So the old man liked them. The true taste test will be my daughter, she’s celiac and the reason I bake GF. I think I may have to reduce the GF flour by a half cup. The GF flour absorbs the liquids a lot more and makes if difficult to spread.
        I will be making these again. Have a great day 🙂

    Hi Marsha! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Any chance there is an ingredient missing above? I followed the recipe exactly and the raw product came out more like a sticky dough instead of pourable batter. The finished product rose in the oven but has an odd texture. I wondered if the recipe should have had some melted butter or milk in addition to the buttermilk for more liquid? It’s also humid where I live, so maybe that effected the results. Either way, many thanks for sharing your passion with us!

      Hi Trisha! The batter has never been that thick for me, so I haven’t needed to add more liquid. Try using 2 cups (250g) of flour next time 🙂 Let me know how it goes, enjoy!

    Hi Marsha, I made a batch of these muffins yesterday and they were perfect, thank you so much. They have all been polished off by my family already! Lovely thick mixture and no problems with the Nutella sinking, can’t wait to make them again. I am considering adding some fruit to the recipe next time, do you think this would work, which fruit would you recommend and would you adapt the original recipe at all?

      Hi Anna, I’m so glad you enjoyed them! 🙂 Adding fruit would be fine! Try 1/2 cup of fruit, no need to change the recipe. I would try chopped strawberries or cherries! 🙂
