Nutella Cake

Posted in baking, dessert

So after hours of research for a Nutella Cake recipe, I finally settled with this recipe from Su Good Sweets. The recipe is a lightened adaptation of Nigella Lawson’s Nutella Cake recipe in her book How to Be a Domestic Goddess. I was happy that I got to use an entire jar of Nutella…the more the better! I also used this recipe for a Nutella Buttercream Frosting from The Urban Housewife. The process was pretty long, which started with the roasting of hazelnuts to whipping egg whites, but overall it was a success. The cake turned out to be more like a brownie, which is how it is suppose to turn out, but I’m still looking for a recipe for a Nutella cake which is moist and fluffy, like a “cake” should be. If you find one, let me know! Otherwise, I may have to do some experimentation.

Roasted hazelnuts – It took awhile to peel of the skin…

Folding in the beaten egg whites

The cake comes out with a hard crust on top due to the egg whites, but all you have to do is cut it off and it’s nice and moist underneath.
