Have your say
- 2 cups self raising flour
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ¾ cup milk
- ½ cup canola oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup Nutella
Preheat oven to 180°C. If using patty pans place them into muffin trays or place muffin paper cases onto a tray.
Place flour and caster sugar into a medium sized bowl. Mix and make a well in the middle. In a separate bowl/jug mix vanilla, eggs, milk and oil. Pour the liquid ingredients into well and mix with a wooden spoon. Muffins are best when made quickly and not over mixed.
Spoon mixture into muffin cases and fill to approximately two thirds of the way. Once you have used up all the mixture, heat Nutella in the microwave in a microwave safe dish for 30 seconds on high. This makes the Nutella runny and easier to use.

Place a teaspoon of Nutella onto each muffin, then using a toothpick swirl the Nutella through the top of the muffin.
Bake in the oven for 12 -15 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Muffins are ready when you can poke a skewer into the middle and it comes out clean.
