Chocolate Nutella Muffins

When I’m asked to nominate my favourite muffin flavour, this one is the hands down winner. You see, I’m a chocolate lover and this recipe produces a moist, decadent muffin that you can’t help falling in love with. And the only advice I will give you, is to get these into the freezer as soon as you can … or you just might devour more than one. Enjoy!

Chocolate Nutella Muffins …
Serves: 12
Ingredients …
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ⅓ cocoa powder (or substitute with raw cacao)
  • ⅓ cup castor sugar
  • ⅔ cup dark chocolate bits
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
Method …
  1. Preheat oven to 200C and grease a 12-hole muffin pan.
  2. Sift self-raising flour, cocoa powder and castor sugar together.
  3. Add dark chocolate bits and stir through dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate jug mix nutella, egg, milk, cream and butter until roughly combined.
  5. Pour mixture into dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mixture should be lumpy so be careful not to overmix.
  6. Spread mixture evenly between muffin holes and bake for 16 – 18 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the muffins as they should be moist in the middle.
  7. Allow muffins to stand in the muffin tray for approximately 5 minutes to cool and then transfer to a cooling rack.
  8. These muffins will freeze well for up to 3 months.
