Ingredients:

  • For the muffins:
    • 2 large eggs
    • 140 g all-purpose flour
    • 120 g brown sugar
    • 45g cocoa powder
    • 120 ml of milk
    • 100 ml heavy cream
    • 100 ml of vegetable oil
    • 1/2 sachet (about 7g) baking powder
    • 1 handful of chopped hazelnuts
    • Nutella, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the dough:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream and vegetable oil until well combined.
    • In another bowl, sift together the flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder.
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until everything is well combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Rest and preheating:
    • Pour the batter into muffin tins, filling each about 2/3 full. Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes while you preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  3. Decorate and bake:
    • Sprinkle the crushed hazelnuts over the batter in each muffin tin.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of your muffins. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; it should come out clean.
  4. Cool and fill:
    • Let the muffins cool completely on a rack.
    • Once cooled, create a small slit in the top of each muffin and fill with Nutella.
  5. Serve:
    • Enjoy these muffins warm or at room temperature. For an extra touch, serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
