  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs at room temp
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk I used 2%
  • 1/2 cup Nutella


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin pan with 12 liners. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Whisk together and set aside.
  • In another medium bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer), add the butter and sugar and cream together on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing between each addition.
  • Add the vanilla, sour cream, and milk and mix until fully combined.
  • Pour in the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop to fill each muffin liner about 1/3 full.
  • Use a small cookie scoop (or a teaspoon) to add a teaspoon of Nutella to each muffin tin and then gently create swirls with a toothpick.
  • Scoop the remaining batter evenly among the muffins.
  • Top with an additional teaspoon of Nutella to each and then gently swirl again.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until just golden. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
