Total Time50 mins
- 230 g (1 3/4 cups) self raising flour
- 150 g (3/4 cup) granulated white sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 large free range eggs lightly beaten
- 113 g (1/2 cup) melted unsalted butter
- 3 large very ripe bananas mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp Nutella
Preheat your oven to 180C / 170C Fan / 350F and line a 12 hold muffin tin with paper liners.
Mix the wet ingredients
Crack the eggs into a separate mixing bowl. Measure the butter in a small bowl and melt it in the microwave (or on the hob). Add it to the eggs along with the vanilla extract.
Peel and mash the bananas before adding to your eggs and butter mixture.
Make the banana Nutella muffins
Spoon the mixture into your cases until they are a little over half full.
Spoon some Nutella into a small bowl and pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds or so just to loosen it a bit and make it easier to mix into the muffins.
Use a teaspoon to add a little Nutella on to the centre of each muffin. Use a skewer or cocktail stick to swirl the Nutella into the muffin.
Bake the muffins
Pop the muffins into the oven for 20-25 minutes. They’re ready when a skewer or sharp knife put into the centre of the muffin comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the muffin tray for 5 minutes then remove and place a cooling rack.
