Banana and Nutella Swirl Muffins

As much as I love whipping up grand triple-layered cakes and carefully piping buttercream roses, sometimes it’s nice to just bake something easy and comforting. No fancy decorations, no heavy machinery required – just a bowl, a spoon and a mixing hand at the ready.

I had a few overripe bananas in the freezer that needed using up and 1/2 a jar of Nutella that was inviting me to consume it with a spoon, so these muffins solved 2 problems – plus it’s nice to whip something up that isn’t banana bread!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 large bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 80 g butter melted
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Line 12 muffin tins with cupcake papers.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bananas, brown sugar, egg, and melted butter.
  • Stir in the flour mixture, and mix until smooth. Scoop into muffin pans.
  • Add a generous dab of Nutella to the top of each muffin and swirl the top using a toothpick.
  • Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly golden
  • Enjoy!

I tried to get a bit creative and unnecessarily wrapped each muffin up in a doily and adorned it with twine. I think Pinterest has gone to my head. But it’s a cheap, easy and cute way to dress these up if you want to gift these!

And the result? The muffins hover between a light and fluffy cake and dense banana bread, with the swirl of Nutella on top a real treat. They make the perfect afternoon treat when heated up in the microwave with a little (more) butter and consumed with a cup of tea.
