Orange Nutella Muffins 香橙榛果酱马芬

This is a revisit of an older recipe that I've tried a few years back. Decided to post nicer photos, and since I am studying the ratio of muffins and cupcakes these days, I am happy to try out these orange Nutella muffins!

Though I am quite a health conscious person, there are some food items that I cannot let go of! And especially my Nutella addict husband (lol). Like Nutella makes everything better! Of course, this might not be a good choice of spread for the kiddos.

These muffins are great with a slight tang - probably from the yogurt - and pairs quite well with the Nutella, so they are not so sweet on the overall.

Also, muffins and cupcakes made with yogurt and/or oil usually taste best the next day. So do make these 1 day ahead. I tried some on the same day that I've baked, and they tasted a little too chewy. On the next day, the flavor of the yogurt and oil developed better, and the muffins were quite soft and not too dense.

This recipe is also a very simple mix and bake one. So it's quite convenient for a quick fix for the next day's breakfast!
