The outside looks like a plain vanilla muffin. But inside there’s a creamy pocket of Nutella hiding.
Can it get any better?
I don’t think so.
Loy says dessert-like muffins should be called “Muffcakes”. I agree completely.
Here’s how you make this magic – and please do go straight to your kitchen to make these. You will love yourself for it!
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbs. baking powder
- 1 stick butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/3-1/2 cup Nutella
Stir the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and milk and mix until well blended.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients with a spoon. Stir gently, just until combined.
Spoon some batter into the bottom of 12 greased muffin cups. You’ll use about half of the batter for this step. Dollop Nutella in the middle of each muffin. Top with more batter to seal the Nutella inside. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Makes 1 dozen muffins.
Here’s what it looks like after the batter has been dolloped with Nutella, but before the top batter has been added:
I love that they’re so plain and unassuming. And then you bite into them and find creamy, delicious Nutella!
How much do you love Nutella? How often do you eat it?
