Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these muffins. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Cocoa powder: I love and use Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder.
- Baking powder
- Large eggs: You’ll need 2.
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Buttermilk: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own.
- Vegetable oil
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
- Nutella: 12 generous teaspoons.
How to make Nutella Stuffed Double Chocolate Muffins
To make these muffins, simply whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until thick and lighter in colour.
Add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients in thirds and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips.
The mixture will be thick and somewhat lumpy.
Spoon the mixture into a muffin pan lined with muffin cases, filling only half way. Spoon 1 generous teaspoon of Nutella into the centres, then top with the remaining batter.
Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted just off centre (to avoid Nutella) comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes in the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
Tips & tricks for this recipe
Here are a few tips and tricks for making these muffins.
- You can make these muffins in a muffin pan with OR without the cases if needed. Just be sure to grease the pan well if not using – I highly recommend a cake release spray.
- Make sure to measure your flour out correctly. Using too much flour will result in dry muffins. I always recommend using kitchen scales instead of measuring cups for better accuracy.
- Once the muffin batter is in the pan ready to be baked, sprinkle on a few extra chocolate chips – for looks, and of course more chocolate!
- The muffin batter is thick enough that the Nutella will NOT sink to the bottom. It’ll stay snuggly in the middle, and create a dreamy molten centre.
- If you can’t get hold of buttermilk, you can either make your own (instructions can be found in the recipe card below), or you can replace with plain yogurt or sour cream.
