It's been a long few days, recovering from that godawful stomach bug. I spent a couple of days feeling weak and puny, with no real appetite at all. Yesterday, my husband started to feel bad, and I had a terrible vision of him getting this thing too. Fortunately, he hasn't so far, and my appetite has come back.
I celebrated by making a batch of Nutella muffins.
From Kirbie's Cravings, reprinted below:
(Note: I halved this recipe.)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar packed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of Nutella
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup (8 ounces) milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons vinegar
1 stick butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line oversized muffin molds with liners. You can also line regular muffin pans. Makes about 12 oversized or 24 regular. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, Nutella and vinegar. Add the wet ingredients, along with the melted butter, to the dry ingredients, then the chocolate chips, stirring until all ingredients are combined. The batter will still be a little lumpy.
Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin about 2/3 full. Bake the muffins for about 25 minutes for oversized muffins (about 18 minutes for regular), or until a knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
