Nutella Pumpkin Muffins ~ 榛子酱南瓜玛芬


My whole house was smelling so good when these muffins were baking away in the oven.  These muffins stay moist and soft the next day and whatever balance I had, I kept in the fridge and serve at room temperature the next day, but if you prefer them a bit warm, just heat up for 20 seconds in the microwave.  The nutella does blend well with the pumpkin and they were yummy with a cup of hot plain tea or coffee!
