Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I may or may not be spoiling you with breakfast recipes this week.  Take a peek at my Mini (no yeast) Cake Batter Cinnamon Buns and Strawberry Frosted Donuts if you missed them. :)

When I was little, my mom (hi mom!) would buy the variety pack of Entenmann’s Donuts for my sisters and I.  The variety packs included chocolate frosted donuts, powdered donuts, and cinnamon-sugar donuts.  I went completely bonkers for the cinnamon-sugar kind.  I may or may not have hoarded them, but that’s neither here nor there…

And to be honest, the combination of cinnamon and sugar has remained a favorite of mine for years.  A sprinkle of cinnamon + sugar on my rye toast, an unbaked snickerdoodle cookie taking a generous roll into a cinnamon-sugar pool, and of course, the said Entenmann’s cinnamon-sugar donuts.  The light spice of cinnamon and the sweet dash of sugar is a simple way to bring back many fond childhood memories!

Nutella Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Today I’m bringing you a wholesome recipe featuring the ultimate cinnamon-sugar duo.  But these guys have a secret delicacy hiding inside.  The sweet, fudgy-hazelnut love of my life: Nutella!  Adore.

This simple muffin recipe  bakes up 8 whole-wheat muffins tasting just like cake donuts.  The muffins are soft and very tall, using the tricks I shared in this post.  Be sure to read that post if you loathe flat, dry muffins like I do. The batter is lightly spiced with cinnamon & nutmeg and coated with melted butter and GENEROUSLY topped with a cinnamon-sugar mixture.  They are stuffed with burst of Nutella and taste completely sinful warm out of the oven.

Reasons why I love these muffins:

(1) they taste like my beloved Entenmann’s cinnamon-sugar donuts. WIN.
(2) They are SO easy & quick to make – the batter is mixed up in only 1 bowl!
(3) The recipe only yields 8, so I’m not stuck eating leftover muffins for days on end… which actually wouldn’t be so bad, would it?!
(4) It’s fun to overlook the melted butter on top and pretend these are healthy. ;)

Paired with a warm cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk, these muffins bring back memories of my favorite cinnamon-sugar donuts from when I was a youngster.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

    Sally they look amazing!! Both the fact that they’re almost like a donut-muffin. There are quite a few donut-muffin recipes floating around right now that I’m sure you’ve seen too but these look so moist and the Nutella filling doesn’t hurt!

    The cinn-sugar topping and Entenmann’s story. I love E’s cakes and that was my h.s. and college staple :) But the cinn-sugar topping, you are a mind-reader. I have my next post written and it’s copiously cinnamon sugar-topped.

    These look fabulous!

      Thank you Averie! We must be on the same wavelength! Can’t wait to see you cinny-sugar recipe. :) I’ve seen many donut muffin recipes out there and while these are “cake-like” they aren’t as firm and dense as the donut-muffins. And they are definitely moist! The nutmeg is my favorite part. It’s subtle… yet definitely there.

    SALLY. I AM DYING. These look SO poufy, so perfect and SO CINNAMONY! Cinnamon sugar donuts (and well, cinnamon sugar anything in general) is one of my favorites, too. Just so perfectly spicy yet sweet, and cinnamon toast has to be one of my favorite breakfast foods ever. Besides these donut muffins which look incredible. I’m pretty sure I’d suffer third degree burns shoving them into my mouth straight from the oven, but it’d be SO worth it!

    I definitely remember those Entenmann’s Donuts, although I think I liked the Hostess ones better. I’m trying to figure out what else I could stuff these muffins with. Biscoff, perhaps? Also when you do have left over baked goods, muffins especially, wrap them up and freeze them. They taste just as good as the day they were made.

    • Sallyreplied on July 7th, 2012 at 6:50 am

    We used to get those donuts growing up too — and as the youngest, I was always “assigned” the donut flavor (aka, I ate what my older siblings didn’t want). Luckily for me, that was cinnamon sugar and I learned to love it over time! Love the nutella worked into these little muffins — looks so good an melty!

      I freeze all of my cookie doughs – freeze them as dough balls in little baggies and bake them up as I need them – great for the upcoming holidays. I frooze these baked muffins and they were fine, just not as great as the fresh ones. They are fairly easy to make though and wouldn’t take too much time during the busy holidays. :) Thank you Vivian, you’re so sweet!

      Hi Lorraine! You may replace with butter with canola oil, yes. They may not be as dense as my muffins since I creamed my butter and it was not melted in liquid form like oil is. Your muffins will be a little fluffier, which could be a good thing! They are good up to one week in an air-tight container, I’ll update the reipe to include that. :)

    hi! these turned out great. i wanted to make double the amount so does that mean i just double the amount for each ingredient? and do i still leave it in the oven the same amount of time if there is twice the amount?

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on December 19th, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      Hi Isra – to double the recipe, you will need twice the amount of each ingredient. Doubling the amount means 16-18 muffins, which could not all bake at once. You will need to bake in two batches. Do not adjust the oven time if you double the recipe.

    Hey Sally! I made these muffins a few months ago, and I’m just now putting them on my blog becaaaauseee…my family (especially me!) loved them SO much that we are making them for Christmas Day breakfast! We’ve had a tradition where we make blueberry crumb muffins (from a box..but they’re surprisingly very yummy each year) every Christmas morning, but I loved these so much that I convinced my parents if we could make this instead for a little twist on the tradition. They gave in as soon as they took the first bite of course(: They are my new favorite muffin of all time…maybe even the best baked good of all time as well! I just wanted to thank you for creating these magnificent little delights, and setting up a new tradition in my family! :) Happy Holidays!

      Thanks Andrea! I know – the height of these muffins is incredible. I love how tall they are – like the kind of muffins you find at bakeries!

        I know you can’t speak for every recipe, but do you find in general that you can use this high heat trick for muffins and cupcakes? I think I am going to experiment…I LOVE the result. Happy New Year!

        • Sallyreplied on January 1st, 2013 at 9:11 am

          Happy New Year Andrea! I prefer my cupcakes to have flat tops so the frosting can sit on them nicely and evenly. But yes, this would work with cupcakes as well!

    OK, so if this makes 8 muffins, what do you do with the 4 empty muffin spots in the tin?

    I’d like to try this recipe with Biscoff I think, that stuff is awesome.

    • Sallyreplied on January 8th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

      fill the empty tins with water to assure even baking, I went ahead and noted that above. sorry if that wasn’t clear!

    The cinnamon sugar nutella muffins are wonderful! I didn’t end up topping them with cinnamon sugar and I used my mini muffin pan, regardless, these were a hit! Very delicious and great if you like cinnamon sugar. I will be making these again, thanks for a great recipe!

    You need to not link from one delicious recipe to another delicious recipe. My pants might not fit by tomorrow at this rate.

    I’ve been coming back to this recipe almost daily since I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and today I finally was able to buy a jar of Nutella and make them. It was DEFINITELY worth the wait. Some of the tops of the muffins fell off which made putting the cinnamon sugar on top kind of difficult, but they taste wonderful anyway. They are sweet enough to have as a dessert and muffin-y enough to have for breakfast (or that’s what I’m telling myself, don’t ruin it for me). I’m in college and all of my roommates send you compliments as well. Thank you for the amazing recipe!
