Nutella-Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Oh, yum!  Muffins dipped in melted butter and cinnamon and sugar, plus they have Nutella in the middle.  These muffins are so good, especially when they're eaten warm out of the oven and just dipped in the cinnamon and sugar.  They're like little Nutella sandwiches and I love how the flavors  mix well with the cinnamon mixture.  There's so many Nutella recipes out there and I've baked my fair share.  But this muffin recipe is something new and different, yet totally crave worthy. 




I found this muffin recipe here, on Sally's Baking Addiction blog. 

 
Nutella-Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins
 
 
Ingredients:
    Muffins
  • 1/3 cup (5 Tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk, but regular is fine)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 teaspoons Nutella
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl of an electric or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed. Mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Gently stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. DO NOT overmix - stir until just combined.
  3. Spoon 1 heaping Tablespoon of batter into muffin cavity. Layer with 1 tsp Nutella in the center and spoon another heaping Tablespoon of batter on top. If the muffin tins are completely full, that is ok. They will not overflow. Repeat layering batter and Nutella into each muffin tin. I got exactly 8 muffins. Fill the empty muffin tins halfway with water for even baking.
  4. Bake at 425F for 5 minutes. Reduce oven to 350F and bake for an additional 13-17 minutes until batter is set. Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes.
  5. While the muffins are cooling, make the cinnamon-sugar topping. Melt the butter for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Stir and stick back in microwave if not fully melted. In a separate small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the top of each muffin into the melted butter and dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Swirl them around in the cinnamon-sugar a bit to make sure you get a thick coating. Set upright on cooling rack.
