'Tis the Season to be an Elf - Idea #13

Idea #13 - Muffins

An easy way to give muffins as a gift is simple.  Simply take an empty foil or seran box, wrap it with wrapping paper and put the muffins in the box.  Simple and pretty.

Nutella Breakfast Muffins

1 egg
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Nutella
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt with 1 tablespoon sparkling sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat together the egg, oil, sugar, flour, baking powder, soda, and vanilla flavorings until smooth. Beat in the buttermilk, then spoon a small amount of the batter into the bottom of a muffin tin lined with a cupcake wrapper. Spoon a tablespoon or so of Nutella into the center of the cup, then cover with a second spoonful of batter. Sprinkle a small amount of the salt & sparkling sugar mixture on top of each muffin.

Bake in preheated oven for 17-19 minutes, or just until the center of the muffins spring back when touched lightly with your finger. Remove and cool. Drizzle warm Nutella on top of each muffin, if desired, before serving.
