Nutella Butter Cake

I was flipping through my stack of filed printed recipes for something simple and using yogurt to bake. I was thinking of baking some simple cake for our workshop today. Having quite a number of yogurt-related recipes, I wasn't ready to get too complicated as I didn't have much time to prepare those small details (like grating the oranges or lemons for the zest etc). So I decided on this recipe from HHB - Nutella Butter Cake.

The ingredients were readily available and easy to prepare. However, I think I must've got "stucked" with the creaming part, that my cake was a bit dry (over-baked too?). Another cause could be that I used 2 tbsps of my remaining Nutella and it was a bit dry, unlike the 1 tbsp of the newly opened Nutella. There wasn't much Nutella taste and I ended up having to frost it with Nutella instead! :p The cake wasn't very fragrant after baking too. However, there is something special about this cake that makes me want to try to bake again. I shall try it again one day.

The cake was "smiling" when I took it out. So "friendly" leh!


I frost the top with Nutella to make it more Nutella taste!


Finally, I sprinkled some snow powder to make it pretty.

I love it! When it doubt, frost the cake with more nutella. That should be a life philosophy or something. This cake looks divine (I mean, it did come out of the oven smiling)!! Can't wait to try it for myself.

Hi Elyse,
Yes, when in doubt, just frost it! One of the best thing you should have in the fridge is Chocolate Ganache. What can go wrong with a ganache? ;)

Hi Art of Eating,
Thanks very much for sharing your experience. Looks like I'm not alone!
