Gluten Free Nutella Filled Cinnamon Cupcakes

It’s been a while since I shared one of my gluten free sweeties recipes, so here it is; gluten free NUTELLA FILLED cinnamon cupcakes!!! This recipe is super simple and easy to make and tastes absolutely fantastic! Looks quite nice too if I say so myself! 😉 The ingredients should make exactly 12 cupcakes. Let’s get started!



  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free baking mix (I love Peak’s Free From Baking Mix, but choosescreen-shot-2016-10-23-at-21-13-33 whichever you know works best for you).
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 jar of Nutella

For a Cinnamon-Sugar topping (highly recommended) please add:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter


  1. First, preheat your oven to about 200 degrees celsius. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper or silicone liners and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients listed above. That’s the flour/baking mix, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder. Mix well for even combination throughout.
  3. In another bowl combine the wet ingredients – the milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk them all together.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix well with a spatula.
  5. Scoop a spoonful of batter and place at the bottom of each muffin tray liners.
  6. Drop one (large) teaspoon on top of this.
  7. Top off with the remaining batter to completely cover the filling.
  8. Place into oven and bake for 13-15 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.
  9. When the cupcakes are done, cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  1. Melt the unsalted butter and keep in a bowl.
  2. Combine the cinnamon and granulated sugar in another bowl.
  3. Get the now cool cupcakes and dip the crown into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  4. Once again leave to cool on the wire rack!
