Nutella Muffins

My dear princess came in the door and said... 'mmm, what do i smell?'. Haha, yes I just baked a batch of Nutella muffins. Used the blueberry muffin recipe as the base, as I do love it so much and instead of blueberries, I put Nutella! Added a half tsp of vanilla in muffin mix and that's it! Made them in smaller cups so yielded 12 instead of the 6 for blueberry ones. And just omit the topping. You don't need that.

It tastes great, but will take note to cut down sugar to 1/2cup as Nutella itself is sweet. Cooking and baking is all about experimentation and adapting, so I'm learning every day with each recipe I try.

Also, have to take note of baking time, as erm, got busy with blogging and didn't keep an eye on muffins. Hehe. They were fine but maybe 5mins less in the oven would have been better.

Yes, you can tell I am in a baking mood. I love to bake, not that I'm that great at it, but from reading other food blogs I'm so totally inspired by some and I didn't know that in Singapore where food is plentiful and very affordable, people still baked their own breads and buns. All this I discovered when I started blogging. The amazing buns that cranberry does are worthy to be sold in a bake shop. I am totally in awe of her.

There is also the baker who cooks. She's really amazing too.

What an eye pleasing way to make muffine. I would have never thought about making them like that.
