Banana Nutella Muffins











I wouldn't say I'm not a morning person. I don't dread getting out of bed. I'm not grumpy and I don't bump into the furniture for the first hour. But I have been known to bribe members of the household to bring me hot cups of tea in bed so that I can wake up at a leisurely pace. I always make it worth their while. Once I've had my tea, I'm happy to spring out of bed and make them something delicious for breakfast. I think it's a pretty fair arrangement.



Banana Nutella Muffins
adapted from Tasty Kitchen
Makes 12

200g cake flour
115g unsalted butter
115g golden caster sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
12 teaspoons Nutella
2 mashed bananas

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper liners.

Sift the flour, baking power and salt together in a bowl. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the vanilla. With the speed turned to low, add the dry ingredients. Mix to incorporate and then add the banana. Do not over mix.

Divide the batter among the prepared cups and place a teaspoon of Nutella on top of each one. take a skewer and swirl the Nutella into the batter a little.

Bake for 18 - 20 minutes.

  3. Ah, I definitely think these muffins far outweigh the benefits of hot tea in bed... maybe make them clean the house whilst you drink your tea?? Then POSSIBLY they'd deserve the awesomeness that is Jen's Banana Nutella muffins. That blob of pure chocolate hazelnut goodness on the top makes me go all gooey-brained... aaaah, Nutella...

    1. Thanks Sue. I don't what it is about the combination of Nutella and banana but they verge in the addictive.
