Pumpkin Nutella Swirl Muffins
Pumpkin Nutella Swirl Muffins with a hint of orange, sounds like a winning combination to me. Perfect for those chilly fall mornings with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
I took the recipe for pumpkin walnut muffins, swirled in Nutella and omitted the walnuts. The addition of the orange juice really brings out the flavor of the pumpkin and paired with the Nutella, well I think we all know how well chocolate and orange go together. Who doesn’t love chocolate in a muffin?
The swirl you see is not only happening on the top, it’s also jazzing up the inside of the muffin as well. I filled the muffin cup about 1/3 full of the muffin batter, then added 1 teaspoon of Nutella and swirled using 2 toothpicks. I used 2 toothpicks because 1 just wasn’t collecting enough of the Nutella to get a good swirl. You don’t have to be too artistic because this swirl is only seen when being eaten.
Nutella on the inside and Nutella on top.
I filled the muffin cups with the rest of the batter (I like large muffin tops so I fill all the way to the top, the only time a large muffin top is acceptable) and swirled in the Nutella again. I was a bit more artistic with the swirl effect since this is what is seen and gives the muffins the wow factor.
Pumpkin Nutella Swirl Muffins – Step by Step
To a mixing bowl sift the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Mix. To a separate bowl add the sugar, pumpkin, eggs, vegetable oil and orange juice. Whisk until blended. Add the dry ingredients to the wet in batches until well mixed.
Fill muffin cups 1/3 of the way with the pumpkin mix. Add 1 teaspoon of nutella. Swirl using 2 toothpicks.
Add more pumpkin mix to fill the cups, then swirl in more nutella on the top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Turn the muffins out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
