Prep Time 20 mins.
Cook Time 24 mins.
Servings 8


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil or coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 to 2 cups Gold Medal UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Nutella at room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Beat butter, oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth.
  3. Mix dry ingredients together and stir into wet mixture.
  4. Spoon mixture into greased or paper-lined muffin tins.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of Nutella on top.
  6. Swirl Nutella into muffin batter with bamboo skewer or toothpick.
  7. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to 350°.
  9. Continue baking an additional 15-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  10. Makes 8 extra large muffins but probably a dozen regular-sized muffins.


NOTE: I did not measure the Nutella with a tablespoon. I dolloped in on so I may have used more than one tablespoon on each muffin.

NOTE: While I used two cups flour, you may find 1 3/4 cup provides a less dense muffin.
