Mud cake muffins with nutella filling

Mud cake with nutella

Mud cake with nutella! Can you get enough if the variations of this delicious chocolate cake? Well, I can’t!

I have made mud cake muffins before (see mud cake muffins with salted caramel), and this is an easy variation of the same recipe. Just change the caramel for delicious Nutella. Can you emagine the combination of a muddy fudgy muffins and Nutella in the middle of it? You have to try it! As I wrote in the previous muffins’ recipe, the simple muffins are inspired by this Swedish recipe.

Good luck baking and let me know what you think about the result!

Recipe for easy mud cake muffins with nutella (Swedish kladdkakemuffins)

  • 100 g salted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2.5 dl sugar
  • 2 dl flour
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 tsp nutella

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C and line a tray with paper muffin cases.

Beat the eggs together with the sugar.

Mix the flour with cacao powder, baking powder, vanilla sugar and salt, and then add it to the egg mixture. Blend together lightly with a spatula. Don’t overmix the batter as this will give you fluffy muffins instead of muddy.

Fill the muffin cases two-thirds full and then add half a teaspoon of nutella on the top of every muffin. Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on how moist you like them.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool or eat them up warm if you are eager like me. But if you have the patience, the muffins will taste even better the next day.

Tips! The muffins are moister when they are warm. All you planning to eat them in a few hours after they are baked, bake them around 12 minutes. If you are planning to eat them the next day, I would recommend taking them out one or two minutes earlier.


Variation ideas for this fika

These muffins are delicious even without the nutella, so if you dont have it home, go on and make them anyway. I would pair this simple muffin with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Don’t forget to try the same muffins with salted caramel instead. My favourite!
