Recipe Tester Feedback: “I have Nutella® for breakfast on toast, so there is absolutely no reason why you couldn't have these for breakfast too! Super quick and very easy (and you can always serve them with even more Nutella!)" - Gail

Makes 6 large or 10 regular muffins

You will need:
large 6 hole muffin tin or smaller 12 hole tin
- butter - 100g, unsalted, cubed
- plain flour - 250g
- brown sugar - 100g, soft
- baking powder - 1.5 tsp
- bicarb soda - 1/2 tsp
- milk - 50g, plus extra for mixing
- eggs - 2, large, lightly beaten
- vanilla - 1 tsp, essence
- chocolate hazelnut spread - 2-3 tsp
- Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C fan forced. Line the muffin tin of your choice with paper cases.
- Add the cubed unsalted butter (100g) to the bowl. Program 40 seconds / 50C / Speed 4, or until melted.
- Add the plain flour (250g), soft brown sugar (100g), baking powder (1.5 tsp), bicarb soda (1/2 tsp), milk (50g), beaten eggs (2) and vanilla essence (1 tsp) to the bowl. Mix Speed 4 / 5 seconds. Scrape down sides.
- Gently mix with a spatula until fully combined. Try not to over mix, or the muffins will become dense. It doesn't matter if the mixture is lumpy.
- Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are 2/3 full.
- In a small bowl, add a dash of milk to some chocolate hazelnut spread (2-3 tsp). Stir vigorously until it becomes a little runnier and easier to work with.
- Drop a little of the mixture on top of each of the muffins and swirl it around with a toothpick. Any way will do!
- Bake in the oven for 12-20 minutes (depending on the size) until lightly golden.
- Eat warm straight from the oven.
Note: Can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
