Eggless Nutella filled Banana muffins
Who loves Nutella?I think I should've asked who does'nt?
My favorite way of eating Nutella is to just eat it with a spoon:)Me and my elder son love nutella ..
For all the nutella lovers out there..World Nutella day is Feb 5th...
So I thought I would make something with this yummy goodness.
I tried to make use of Nutella in my muffins..I swirled nutella on top of some of the muffins and filled in the rest..
Here goes the recipe..
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1tsp
Baking powder - 1tsp
Sugar - 2/3 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Melted butter - 1/3 cup
Mashed Banana - 4
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Chopped walnuts - 1/2 cup
Nutella - 1/2 cup
Preheat the oven to 360 deg F.
Line the muffin tin with muffin liners.In a medium bowl add the all purpose flour,baking soda,baking powder,salt and mix well.
In another bowl,add the mashed banana,sugar,melted butter,vanilla essence,chopped walnuts and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.The mixture would be lumpy.Don't tend to over mix.
Fill up to 1/2 of the muffin liner.Spread the mixture evenly on the sides so that when you fill the nutella it will not come out through the sides of the muffin.Then add a tablespoon of nutella in the middle.I worked with my finger cuz I felt so easy to indent the nutella.Then fill the muffin up to 3/4 th.
You can also fill the muffin liner upto 3/4 th and then add a tsp of nutella on the top and swirl with a toothpick.
My swirl did not come out that good because nutella was sooo hard to work with..
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the tester when inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and store in air-tight container.
