Oh. my. gosh. This is my new favorite recipe! Not only is it easier and faster to make than even a boxed cake mix, but they are so wonderful and elegant as well. This recipe is from the blog Proceed with Caution , which is appropriately titled. I think I could eat my weight in these!

Preheat oven to 325F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners. Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Add vanilla. Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains. Batter will be thick. Fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full. Top each cake with 2 tsp Nutella. Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the nutella. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 12.
