Nutella cakes

I love these little cakes. They serve as the perfect vehicle for transporting Nutella to the body and are ridiculously simple to make.

what you need: makes 12

  • 4 oz self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 heaped tbs cocoa
  • 4 oz butter
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs milk
  • approx. 6 heaped tsp of Nutella

what you do:

  • preheat oven to 180C
  • cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl
  • beat the eggs with the vanilla and pour slowly into the butter and sugar mixing well
  • sieve in the flour, baking powder and cocoa and mix well
  • add the milk and beat into a smooth batter
  • put a dollop of the cake batter into each cake case making sure it covers the whole of the bottom
  • add 1/2 tsp of Nutella to each cake
  • top with the remaining cake batter
  • bake for approx 15 minutes until well risen and set

to serve:

for me these really have to be straight out of the oven and served with ice-cream so the Nutella is still warm and runny. But you can eat yours however you like…
