Nutella – OMG yummy yummy :) I was introduced to this lip smacking spread from my friend N’s lunch box in school. Her mom would pack these nutella sandwiches for her, only to be relished by us.. er.. only me I think :)
I was reminded of nutella once again a couple of weeks ago when I came across this Swirl Cake with Nutella recipe by Sandra Avital. You have to check her blog out to see just how tempting those pictures are. One look at them and I was dying to get my hands on to an eggless one.
So taking my mum’s earlier cake recipe and a bottle of nutella, I set out to make this treat.
- Follow the cake recipe from here, omitting the carrots and cinnamon and using 3/4 tin condensed milk
- Grease the tin with butter and pour half the batter and even it out with a spatula. Spread a layer of nutella over this and finish off with the remaining batter on top
- Take a toothpick or the back of a spoon and swirl around so as to give a marble cake effect.
Tip: Do this gently and do not let the toothpick sink to the bottom else the nuttela sticks to the tin
The result: Indescribable. Has to be tasted to know exactly what I mean :)
