Chocolate Nutella muffin

Do you ever get overtaken by an irresistible craving for chocolate, and find yourself rummaging about in the kitchen hoping to find any type of food product even remotely related to it? It has happened to me many times, often in relation to Nutella. So I invented Nutella muffins, which are easy to make ‘on the go’ when you crave something sweet but don’t want to bake a whole cake. The benefit is twofold: first, you can satisfy your sweet tooth in a particularly easy and fast way, and second, if you have the self-restraint not to eat them all at one sitting you'll also have breakfast the next morning .. . How about a lovely breakfast of Nutella muffins and milk? What could be a more enjoyable pairing?

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder, cocoa and sugar. In another bowl mix all the liquid ingredients with the melted butter. Now slowly stir the two mixtures together to form a smooth and uniform whole. Cut the dark chocolate into irregular flakes and mix into the dough. Grease a muffin tin well, or use paper cups, and fill to 2/3 capacity. With a syringe, inject a bit of Nutella into the centre of the muffins and then bake for 20 minutes at 180°C. Soon you will have your fabulous muffins with a Nutella centre which, when eaten straight from the oven, will warm your day!

Don’t wait too long from the moment you have made your Nutella muffins to eating them, because if they become too cool they may be a little hard.
The method behind this recipe is common to all muffins: you mix the liquid ingredients and the dry ones separately first, then both together.
