Nutella Cake



 Did I ever mention that I am an nutella craze? I can hug a big tub of nutella and gulp down non stop using a spoon while watching TV drama or reading books. I quit this bad habit many years ago ever since I need to watch my waistline. 


However during my maternity leaves at home, this bad habit came back and haunt me. I picked it up again and within 3 days, I can finished the giant tub of nutella which I think is 750g, scary right! Of course I dun do it anymore, I cannot afford to load more fats on me  hahaha...


Since I still have 2 big tub of nutella at home, I am looking for some recipes to get rid of it. Recalled that I ever saw this recipe in one of my baking books collection, quickly flipped through all the books to hunt for it lol. This cake was baked almost 1/2 year ago, I still have 1 tube unopened nutella and 1/3 tube opened one in the fridge now, need to find chances to get rid of it.


Recipe from Agnes Chang I CAN BAKE

Ingredients: (for 9"/22cm round cake pan but I used 8" and a few cupcakes)
250g butter, softened
200g soft brown sugar
4 eggs, lightly beaten
300g self raising flour, sifted
5 tbsp milk

6tbsp or more Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread
60g hazelnuts, chopped coarsely (I used walnuts)

Method:
1. Put all the ingredients for cake into a mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy.
2. Pour 2/3 portion of the cake mixture into a greased and lined round baking tin and spread evenly to level. 
Spoon the Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread in six blobs (I put more).
3. Top with the remaining 1/3 portion of the cake mixture, swirl a few times with a skewer, then smooth the top.
4. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts (I used walnuts since dun ve hazelnuts on hand) on top of batter and bake in a preheated oven at 180C forabout 45minutes to 1 hour or until cooked and golden brown. (Pls cover the cake with aluminium foil if the cake starts to brown too fast)
5. Remove, leave to cool before serve.

Verdict?
The cake is soft and fluffy, tasted so good with the nutella. This is so easy to whip up that you can have it 
anytime when you are craving for butter cake.

  14. Hi Jess, we don't normally eat Nutella but recently I bought 1 bottle back home becoz I need to do a food test on my son whether he is allergic to hazel nut or not as per the paediatric immunoligist's advice. I love your cake which is generously spread with so much of nuts & it looks delicious there!
