Strawberry Nutella Muffins
from Two Peas & Their Pod
makes 9 muffins
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
2 t baking powder
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c canola oil
1 large egg
1/3 c buttermilk
1 t vanilla extract
1 c chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 c Nutella
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of muffins
What To Do
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease well. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
In a small bowl, combine canola oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla together. Use a fork or whisk and mix until well combined.
Incorporate the wet ingredients into flour mixture. Add slowly and gently stir, you don’t want to over mix. The batter will be thick. Carefully fold in the strawberries.
Fill each muffin cup half way with batter. Next, add a small spoonful of Nutella to each muffin cup. Cover the Nutella filling with the remaining batter. Sprinkle each muffin with turbinado sugar.
Bake muffins for 17-20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a cooling rack.
I don’t have canola oil so I use regular vegetable oil.
I don’t buy buttermilk, but it’s pretty easy to make some: put 1 T of lemon juice in a 1-cup liquid measuring cup. Fill it up with milk to the 1-cup line. Let it sit for 5 minutes and presto – you’ve got yourself some buttermilk!
I sift my dry ingredients together instead of whisking them. This incorporates more air for a lighter, fluffier muffin.
I’m not sure what turbinado sugar is, but I had some red, pink, and white sugar sprinkles so put those on top. Everything’s better when sprinkles are involved!
I should have waited a little longer so the tops could be golden brown…I got impatient!
