Posted: Sep 26 2013

Let's face it... Who isn't a fan of Nutella? We love it on toast, we love it on fresh white bread and we love scooping it out of the jar itself. But did you know you can add it in to your every day baking? Read on for two delicious recipes based around the soft, deep brown goodness... *drool*


NUTELLA BUTTER CAKE Preparation Time – 10 minutes Baking Time – 60 minutes Serves – 8


Ingredients:

150g churned, salted butter

1 cup caster sugar

3 organic eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups plain flour, sifted

1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted

1/2 cup milk

2 tablespoons Nutella


Method:

Preheat oven to 160C. Grease and line a 20cm (8 inch) round or 25x11cm (10×4 inch) rectangle loaf tin with baking paper.

Combine all ingredients except Nutella in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer for approximately 4 minutes until combined and smooth.

Spoon half the mixture in the prepared tin. Place one tablespoon of Nutella over the mixture. Using a wooden skewer or fork, gently swirl the mixture through the batter along the top to get a marble effect. Top with remaining cake batter. Add another tablespoon of Nutella on top and repeat the swirling pattern. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes until cooked when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then turn on to a wire rack to cool completely. Will keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
