- 300g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 150g sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 package vanilla sugar (16g)

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners.
In a mixing bowl beat together butter, 120g sugar, vanilla sugar, salt until smooth and creamy. Keep steering and start adding eggs one by one until all combines. Add 100g Nutella combining the ingredients. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda and whisk until all the ingredients combine. Don't overmix, the less you mix the more tender they will be! With a spoon scoop evenly into the prepared cupcake liners. To each muffin add a bit of Nutella (1/2 teaspoon) and cover it with your mixture. Remember to fill the muffin cases only 3/4 cavity otherwise they might overflow. Sprinkle the muffins with the chopped hazelnuts and the rest of sugar. Bake for about 25-30min. You can check if that the muffins are ready by sticking a cocktail stick into the centre of each muffin. It should come out clean and not sticky, if it is still sticky just leave it in the oven for 3-5 minutes more.
