In a large bowl whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl stir butter and sugar until smooth.  Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and whisk until all combined.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir again until just combined. 

Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin well.  Top each with 1 teaspoon of Nutella.  Use a toothpick to swirl the batter.  Top with 2 more tablespoons of batter and then another teaspoon of Nutella and swirl again.
