One of the best things about running my blog is that there are no rules.

I love peanut butter, I love cookies, I love salted caramel, and I definitely love sprinkles. And my recipe archive reflects that!  They are the flavors and desserts I personally love to make. My baking addiction demonstrates that.

Being in the blogworld for a little over a year, I’ve learned that reposting old recipes may be taboo or against the rules. However, I recently made my Nutella-Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins again and they were too pretty to not photograph with my new camera. And too pretty to not share with my newer readers. This muffin recipe is a goldmine and I want to make sure no one misses it!

The muffins taste like donuts.  Like those cinnamon sugar cake donuts from Entenmanns.  A breakfast including those donuts was always one of my favorites growing up.  Last summer I went on a mission to recreate something very similar, but give it a little upgrade. Enter Nutella. ;)

The muffins have been so popular with my readers for a good reason: they are out of this world!  A real treat first thing in the morning. They freeze well, so you may enjoy them anytime you want without making them fresh. Just heat them up for about 45 seconds straight from the freezer.  Such a comforting treat with a warm cup of coffee or tea. For breakfast, for snacking, as dessert, or at midnight.  These are perfect any time of day when that chocolate/donut/cinnamon-sugar craving hits.

And did I mention? They are whole wheat too. Simply use a mixture of whole wheat flour + all-purpose flour OR all white-whole wheat flour (that’s what I do).  The recipe makes 8-9 very soft, moist muffins and can easily be doubled.

Making these muffins is easy. It takes about 30 minutes start to finish, and the ingredients are all mixed in 1 bowl.  Any recipes where I can avoid doing extra dishes are favored in this house. I loathe dishes, so this is one of my favorite recipes to make.

The muffins bake up to be quite tall. Tall domed muffins with a gorgeous crackled top. I used the tricks I shared in this post to ensure a high-topped muffin. Be sure to read that post if you’re curious to learn how to bake tall, bakery-style muffins. Once they come out of the oven, give them a generous dunk into melted butter and then another dunk into a shallow bowl of cinnamon/sugar. I coat them heavily with the good stuff.

While I love the cinnamon sugar coating on top, the absolute best part is the melty Nutella hiding inside. A surprise burst of chocolate in every single bite. You can even top with MORE Nutella. You only live once. ;)

No one can resist these muffins. I brought them to work before and they were gone within minutes.  A cinnamon/nutmeg spiced whole wheat batter, stuffed with a generous portion of Nutella, and then dunked into butter and more cinnamon.  Readers have told me that this is my best recipe!

And I would happen to agree. Easy, quick, buttery, and irresistible. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!

Nutella-Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Donut-like muffins dipped in cinnamon-sugar and stuffed with Nutella. These are my favorite way to eat Nutella!

Yield: 8-9 muffins

Ingredients:

Muffins

  • 1/3 cup (5 Tablespoons or 75g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk (cow, almond, soy)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (190g) white whole wheat 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 (50g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons (45g) unsalted butter

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425F. 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, nutmeg, and salt. Do not overmix - stir until *just* combined.

Spoon 1 heaping Tablespoon of batter into muffin cavity. Layer with 1 teaspoon 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.

Bake at 425F for 5 minutes. Keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce temperature to 350F and bake for an additional 13-17 minutes until batter is set. Allow muffins to cool for about 5 minutes.

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.

Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container up to 1 week.  Muffins freeze well, up to 3 months.

*Instead of white whole wheat flour, you may use all-purpose flour or half whole wheat flour/half all-purpose flour.

    Sally, these look amazing!! Who doesn’t love cinnamon and sugar? My two boys would devour these, but I would love to try them with a Biscoff filling subbed for the Nutella, since I’m not much of a chocolate lover. I’m sure they would be equally delicious! I WILL be making these very soon, and I’m thinking 2 batches, one with Nutella and the other with Biscoff, that’s a win-win!

I love the picture of the cinnamon sugar in the bowl (gorgeous bowl!)…it makes me want to go to a beach. ;) That’s tough that you hate doing dishes so much but love baking. Luckily, I happen to love doing dishes. Seriously!

As often as I post certain things of mine, I am still surprised that even from people who read my site fairly regularly (I think) will say, oh wow, I never saw that recipe before when I re-link stuff. And if you’re already making these muffins anyway b/c they’re on standby rotation in your house anyway, why not post em!

    Yet another recipe that I’m dying to try! This looks fantastic.

    I wanted to report back on my efforts with your Super Crumb Coffee Cake. In a word: fabulous! I actually ended up making two last Friday, as I had a mini baking disaster with the first one when my springform pan started leaking in the oven (definitely operator error on my part .. whoops.). I was able to salvage it, however, and gave it to my mom who texted me a picture of the half eaten cake the next day that read, “Cake thief in the night?” Suffice to say she enjoyed it! For the second cake, I ended up using a 9×13 pan, as it was all I had on hand, and baked it for about 30 minutes. Perfection! The cakes were a big hit in multiple households.

    Thanks for all the fantastic recipes; I can’t wait to keep trying more!

      Good to know that it can work in a 9×13 pan. But I am so glad that you all loved this coffee cake so much. So sorry about your springform pan! That has happened to me before. It sure is frustrating. Thanks for reporting back, Madeleine!

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with updating the photos on a recipe! We become better photographers over time (and buy better cameras too!), so it’s only fair that the older recipes get just as much love and doting as the newer ones. Especially when there’s chocolatey nutella involved!

    Hi Sally,
    After having baked and baked and baked your delicious pretzels over and over again the past couple of weeks (and tomorrow for breakfast… again!), I came across this recipe, I can’t wait to try it! My husband is allergic to egg, so I will try it with a suitable egg-replacer. I have also run out of Nutella (how is it possible, argh!), but wonder whether it would work equally well with Speculoos spread (I think you call it Biscoff spread in America?). I will certainly give them a whirl (albeit with Speculoos spread for now), I know this will be another winner in our household. And def always re-post, people like me would have missed out otherwise :) Whoever doesn’t agree with re-posting should look away. Gorgeous website xxx

    Hi Sally, how are you?
    I found your blog a couple of days ago and I am simply in love with your recipes and your pictures.
    I was really looking forward to trying this recipe, but I gotta say it didn’t work and I am especially sad because I don’t know why.
    I’m an amateur in the kitchen, but I’m used to make some pretty good stuff.

    I used the pan I normally use to bake cupcakes and filled the tins up to the top. The thing is the batter didn’t grow up as yours did, it grew to the sides and it was also very breakable despite the moisture.

    Should I have used a bigger pan? Or should I have put less batter in each tin? Or maybe the batter wasn’t perfect?

    I know this is probably asking too much, but as some other food blogs, maybe you could take pictures of each step of your recipes. It would help a lot amateur cooks like me.

    I’m really sorry for the big comment, it’s just that your muffins look so amazing, I just wish I could make them too.

    Thank you,
    Juliana.

      Hi Juliana! Thanks for the suggestion to take more photos of the process. I have begun to do a little bit of that, but with writing my cookbook and only having a chance to bake int eh evening – it’s tough to shoot during the day. But I will take it into consideration! If you used a regular 12-count muffin pan, then it’s not the pan size that is the issue. It sounds like you may have filled them too high. Try filling them less next time. I think that will help. Thank you!

    The only thing I’m concerned about is the fact that the Nutella inside the muffins didn’t have the same melt-y consistency it’s supposed to have, it was more like it was dried out or something, it still tasted great though….(I followed all the ingredients and steps exactly)
    Any advice on how to get that melty Nutella consistency?

      Hi there! Oh I just love these muffins. You could most definitely use this recipe in an 8×8 inch baking pan. The recipe only makes 8-9 muffins, so I fear the cake will be very thin. OR you could bake this recipe in a 9×5 loaf pan and swirl Nutella throughout. I’m just thinking (typing) out loud. I’ve never tried that before, but I assume it would work. I am unsure of the exact baking time though.

    These look absolutely gorgeous and id like to make them for my boyfriend tomorrow, however i don’t have a muffin tin, could i use cup cake cases/tin and how long would i cook them for?

    Your blog is so inspiring! x

      You could most definitely use this recipe in an 8×8 inch baking pan. The recipe only makes 8-9 muffins, so I fear the cake will be very thin. OR you could bake this recipe in a 9×5 loaf pan and swirl Nutella throughout. I’ve never tried that before, but I assume it would work. I am unsure of the exact baking time though.

    I made these today, so easy, and they look so delicious! I doubled the quantities and managed to get 17 regular sized muffins and one half sized muffin, and no flat tops here, thanks to your fab tips!

    If anyone’s curious, I worked out the calories as around 250 per muffin, so not even that naughty!

    Thanks so much for the fab recipe!

    I am very glad that you did a recipe round-up for new readers like me! I don’t recall how I ended up on your site (maybe Nosh On It?? – were you featured there?) but I did and have been following ever since. I had never noticed these little beauties but it is going on the “short list”…I assume all of us recipe collectors have these lists? :o) I love having an indulgent (and healthy options too!) individual sized goodie made up in the freezer…and I love recipes that can be frozen! I don’t know how you apartment dwellers deal with having only the refrigerator freezer – I have 2 refrigerators (when we bought all new stainless appliances for the kitchen I kept the old one to put in the basement) PLUS I have a deep freeze….all packed with food!! I do everything from scratch.. bread, precook dried beans, steel cut oatmeal, make up many types of soups, probably have 6 different types of cookie dough’s…all go in the freezer. This muffin shall be in my freezer very soon! Thank you!

    Hi, I can’t wait to make your nutella muffins, they look sooo good, but I have 2 questions before I make them. What is granulated sugar? I’m from South Africa, is it icing sugar or castor sugar? Also should I set my oven to 180C the first time? I don’t understand the temperature in F, looking forward to your reply, so I can get started on these delicious muffins, thank you so much :)

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on February 26th, 2014 at 8:25 pm

      180C would be fine for these muffins. Granulated sugar is not icing sugar or castor sugar. Castor sugar could be used to replace it in this recipe. Enjoy!

    Oh my! These were amazing! I wanted to make them last weekend but ran out of cinnamon, so I’ve been thinking about them all week! My little girls and I love baking together, and your recipes are quickly becoming my go to picks! We’ve made your Snickerdoodles several times (my four year olds favorite!) and you chocolate chip cookies (my husband’s favorite!) several times as well. This one was probably my two year old favorite, and really easy for them to help me with.

    I’ve been eyeing this recipe for a while (yum Nutella)! When you mention substituting the white whole wheat flour with ‘half all purpose and half whole wheat’, do you mean white whole wheat flour? I was given a packet of ‘hard red whole wheat flour’ and don’t even know how to use it

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on May 1st, 2014 at 11:35 am

      Hi Max – white whole wheat flour is a type of flour. It’s whole wheat flour, but has the taste and consistency of white flour (which is lighter than typically dense whole wheat flour). You may use all-purpose flour instead or half whole wheat and half all-purpose if you do not have white whole wheat.

    I have to admit, when I read the recipe, I was a bit skeptical about the cinnamon sugar/Nutella combo. I love cinnamon sugar liberally sprinkled on my toast, but with Nutella, my favorite thing in the world? I wasn’t sold.
    WAS I EVER WRONG!!!! The second batch in just as many days is cooling on the counter as I type this. These are just unbelievably good, dense but not heavy, chewy, just sweet enough, and the Nutella…oh, the Nutella!
    From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You can be certain that these delightful treats will be enjoyed for many years to come. <3

    this recipe sounds fun! but i’ve tried a recipe alike, only with jam instead of nutella, and the jam sank to the bottom. was this not the case for any of your attempts? had to result to making a yogurt cake mixture, something of a thicker consistency, for the jam to stay in the middle. Thanks.

    I made these for an elderly couple we visit, and they were a huge, huge hit!

    So I got to thinking about what they’d be like as a cake and decided to try. I doubled the recipe, used a full cup of butter, coconut milk, half white flour, half whole wheat, and about 1/2 of a jar of Nutella. Baked it in an 8×8″ pyrex in my toaster oven for 25 min. It was a bit underdone in the middle, but was otherwise too fabulous to mind one iota!
    For the topping, I let the cake cool, then mixed 3/4 c. brown sugar with 1/4 c. melted butter and spread over the top. Then sprinkled about 1 c. shredded coconut on top of that and broiled for 5 min. THEN I added mini chocolate chips while it was still warm so they would melt slightly. Pretty darn tasty if I say so myself!

They turned out so lovely, and the 5 min cook time at high heat makes such a perfect dome. This morning, I had a ton of apples in the crisper, so I decided to swap out the Nutella for apples. I just threw them in a frying pan with a little butter, cinnamon and sugar and cooked for a few minutes, they turned out really well.

    Hi Sally,

    I am wondering the texture difference between this muffin and your chocolate chip muffin. I love how light and moist texture of the choco chip muffin. However you stated that this one has more of a donut texture. Does that mean this one is more dense? If so, can i use the choco chip muffin recipe instead and add the nutella filling? Really dying to try this one for breakfast tomorrow! Nutella filling with sugar cinnamon topping sounds absolutely delicious!
