It surprisingly not too sweet (or is it my sweet tooth has it own judgement?), and of course smells wonderful! Thanks heaven for the smell of vanilla and cinnamon. They paired perfectly. And when you add a teaspoon of nutella. Oooh I'm in heaven :D
75g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
100g granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120ml) milk
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 and 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 teaspoons Nutella
1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 Tablespoons (45g) unsalted butter
- Preheat oven to 180degree celcius. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- 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, and salt. Do not overmix - stir until just combined.
- Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into muffin pan, add 1 teaspoon of Nutella in the center and spoon another tablespoon of batter on top. If the muffin tins are completely full, that is ok.
- Bake about 30minutes.. Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes.
While the muffins are cooling, make the cinnamon-sugar topping. Melt the butter. 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.
