Ingredients

Instructions

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit & line your muffin tins or spray them with cooking oil. (*2)
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, & 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice with a spoon until the ingredients are evenly dispersed.
  3. In a separate bowl mix 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1 can pure pumpkin, 2 large eggs, & 8 tablespoons cooled melted butter with a whisk until combined.
  4. Create a funnel in the dry ingredients & pour the wet ingredients into the center.
  5. Mix with a spoon until combined & set to the side. *(3)
  6. In a medium bowl blend 8 ounces cream cheese, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract & one egg. Blend until combined.
  7. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 full with pumpkin batter.
  8. Top each muffin with a small dollop of cream cheese (about 1 tablespoon) & a dollop of Nutella. Use a toothpick to swirl the pumpkin batter, cream cheese, & Nutella.
  9. Bake your Nutella Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins for 20-25 minutes. (*4)
  10. Let cool on a wire rack & enjoy!
  11. Store extra muffins in a sealed container in your fridge for up to a week. To reheat cover in foil & bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes or microwave them as desired for 15-30 seconds.

Notes

*1. I prefer to use dark brown sugar for a richer flavor, but light brown sugar works well too.
*2. To ensure your oven is at the right temperature for baking, preheat your oven before you start so that it will continue to warm up an additional 5-10 minutes before you place your muffins in the oven.
*3. Don’t over mix. Some lumps are normal.
*4. When a toothpick comes out clean your muffin tops are done baking.
