Nutella Mania!

Now I must say that if you have never had Nutella you are seriously missing out on the amazing chocolate hazulnut goodness! Sigh...it's so delicious! I will advise you to go right now and try it! You can put it on everything! It's great wit fruit or great to make Nutella bannana sandwiches! And now through the world of Pintrist I have discovered many other goodies you can make with it! And a couple weekends ago I tried one of them out! Here is the recipe for all of you to try out! YUM!  

Nutella Self Frosted Cupcakes
(I called them muffins because I served them for breakfast ) :) 

I am all about super simple easy recipes and this is one of them! What I love even more is that I had everything in the house! It called for the basic ingredients every baker has around the house!

1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup canola or mild vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4-1/2 cup Nutella, at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 325F.
In a medium bowl, beat the butter, oil and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the butter mixture and beat on low speed just until combined. The batter will be thick. It needs to be in order to swirl in the Nutella!
Divide the batter between 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Drop a spoonful of Nutella on top of each, and swirl through the batter with the tip of a bamboo skewer, knife or other pointy object. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until springy to the touch. Tilt them in the pan to help them cool. Makes a dozen cupcakes.

Trust me the result is amazing! They are perfect! 

Hope you have a simply wonderful Tuesday!
