Weary of the same muffin recipes? Our Nutella-stuffed Easy Nutella Muffins with crunchy sugar topping are ideal for variety!  


– 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 tablespoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 2 large eggs – 1 cup granulated sugar – 1 cup whole milk or 2% – 1/2 cup vegetable oil – 1/3 cup sour cream – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 heaping teaspoons Nutella – Decorator's sugar garnish, optional


Heat the oven to 425°F. Put two 12-cup muffin tins with baking spray or paper liners aside. 

Step 1

Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium basin. Mix eggs and granulated sugar in a large bowl until blended. 

Step 2

Pour oil, sour cream, and vanilla extract into the bowl and whisk until smooth. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until no dry spots remain.  

Step 3

Pour 1 and ½ tablespoons of batter into 22 greased/lined muffin cups. For this, I recommend a 1 & ½ tablespoon cookie scoop.  

Step 4

Put 1 heaping spoonful Nutella in each muffin center. Pour another 1.5 teaspoons of batter on top. The batter on top should cover Nutella thoroughly. 

Step 5

If using, sprinkle decorator's sugar on muffins. Bake muffins 5 minutes at 425°F. Leave the muffins in the oven at 350°F for 10-13 minutes. 

Step 6

The muffins will puff, crack, and seem dry when done. Insert a toothpick halfway between the center and edge of the muffin.  

Step 7

Nutella may stick to the toothpick, but the batter should come out clean. Wait 5 minutes to cool the muffins in the tin. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
