Donut Muffins:

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup milk

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 (13 ounce) jar chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)

Cinnamon-Sugar Coating:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, or more as needed

  • cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Powdered Sugar Glaze:

  • 1 ½ cups sifted powdered sugar, or more as needed

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk until combined.

  3. Combine 3/4 cup sugar, milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add flour mixture and stir until combined.

  4. Place 2 tablespoons of batter into each prepared muffin cup. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of Nutella® to the center of each and cover with 2 additional tablespoons donut batter, or until each cup is 3/4 full.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges and bottoms are browned, 18 to 22 minutes. Do not overbake. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes; shake muffins out of the tin while still warm.

  6. Melt butter in a small microwave-safe bowl in a microwave in 10 second intervals. Combine sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl. Dip donut muffins into the melted butter followed by cinnamon-sugar coating.

  7. Mix powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Dip donut muffins into glaze.
