This recipe has been floating all over the internet recently and since it IS my duty to try out new recipes for you all, I sacrificed for all of you and made these. Really. It was torture having to sample these so I could tell you whether or not they were any good. Oh, the sacrifices I make.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup Nutella
Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on top of muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
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 donâ€™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.
Did I change anything? I left off the turbinado sugar and I baked them for a little bit longer.
What did the family think? Everyone is at work and school right now, but really, it’s chocolate and strawberries. Who’s going to turn that down?
