Hi peeps.

I found this recipe for nutella cake … (think it is taken from Nigella lawson’s How To Be A Domestic Goddess Book) and decided to try it out. it seems like a fool proof recipe. What do you know, it turned out great and delicious.. (seriously guys..nothing can go wrong when nutella is involved)

  • 6 eggs (separate the yolk from the white)
  • pinch of salt
  • 125 gram soft unsalted butter
  • 600 gram nutella
  • 1 table spoon water
  • 100 gram ground hazelnut
  • 100 gram dark cooking chocolate

How to

  • Toast the hazelnut in a dry frying pan until it is golden brown. Let it cool off completely
  • Grind the toasted hazelnut
  • Melt the dark cooking chocolate using the double boiling heat. let it cool off
  • Greased a 9 inch cake tin
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  • In a bowl, whish the egg whites and salt until stiff (not dry)
  • In another bowl, beat butter and 400 gram of nutella. Then, add the 1 table spoon water, egg yolk and the grounded hazelnut
  • Mix the melted cooking chocolate with the mixture of egg whites. Then gently put in the mixture in the nutella mixture bowl 1/3 at a time
  • Pour in the tin and bake it for 40 minutes or until the cake beginning to come away at the sides

  • Let it cool off before you take out the cake from the tin. It might be a little bit difficult since it is a very moist cake. (expect your cake to colapse a bit)
  • Put the rest of nutella as the icing. ( you can opt for chocolate icing as per the original recipe but I am lazy and what can I say..I love my nutella) 🙂

And…wallaaah… nutella cake! It doesn’t look that grand but it is delicious 🙂 I brought 3/4 of the cake to the office and they finished it before noon! The nutella might be a bit pricey but you won’t regret it
