  4. Gently stir in the flour.

  5. Scoop the mixture into 12 cupcake liners in a muffin tray.

  6. Share the Nutella evenly between the 12 muffins (If the room is cold, pop the Nutella in a bowl in the microwave for 15 - 20 seconds first to warm it and soften it slightly.)

  7. Use a table knife to create a swirl, making sure that the majority of the Nutella is covered by cake batter. 

  8. Bake for 20 minutes until golden and springy.
