Yellow Muffins with Nutella Topping

These Muffins are so soft, light, sweet, and are super easy to bake..
I make these sweet treats about once a week to surprise my little ones when they come home from school...
You just need the right ingredients,
The correct baking utensils and you'll have a kitchen full of sweet warm aroma...
and very happy kids coming from school to munch on the Muffins..
I usually just add vanilla, but if you would like a lemony flavor add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon peel
Or for Orange flavor add 1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon of orange peel.

Makes 10-12 muffins
Prep time:10 minutes
Bake time:20 minutes
Oven 350
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour(maida)
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

 Cooks Note
1. you can split the batter in half and add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to half of the batter, and you will have chocolate muffins.
2. make sure you don't over fill your muffin cups more than half way or 2/3 otherwise your muffins will explode over the muffin pans.
3. Preheat your oven only 10-15 min before. Make sure its not too hot other wise you will end up with cracked muffins.
4. These Muffins Cook really fast so check up on them every 10 min.

Spoon Batter into prepared muffin cups
Filling each 2/3 full
Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 20 minutes until golden yellow brown,
Or when a inserted toothpick comes out clean
Cool muffins in pan for 10 min
Remove gently from pan and place on a wire rack to cool for up to 30 min

I used Nutella topping for the top of the muffins, but you can use any flavor or topping of your choice..I usually make my own but my son insisted on Nutella
"Don't have topping" Then make some homemade No-cook chocolate Fudge frosting like i do.

3 cups sifted powder sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter or margarine softened
1/3 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Method:Frosts 18-20 muffins
Combine sugar and cocoa powder
Add butter,boiling water, and vanilla.
Beat with a electric mixer on low speed till combined.
Then again beat on medium speed for 2 min.
 Cool for about 20 min, or until mixture reaches spreading consistency.
and enjoy...with your favorite, muffins, cupcakes, and desserts.
