Twintastico Naughty Nutella Cake
Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy Nutella and that is basically the same thing 😉
- 5 eggs
- 100g caster sugar
- 50g ground hazelnuts
- 50g plain flour
- 50g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 400g Nutella
- 250g Mascarpone
- 250g Nutella
- 50g Icing sugar
- 50g Coarsely/roughly chopped blanched/peeled hazelnuts
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas mark 4/350ºF.
In a large bowl, whisk the egg and sugar together until the sugar has dissolved and pale in colour.
Then add the Nutella and mix well until all combined together.
In a separate bowl, add the ground hazelnuts, cocoa powder, flour and baking powder.
Then add the dry mixture to the bowl with the eggs and Nutella and mix well until all combined.
Pour into a 23cm/9 inch round greased and lined spring-form loose-bottomed cake tin and cook for 40 minutes or until the cake’s beginning to come away at the sides, then let cool on a rack.
In a separate bowl add the mascarpone, Nutella and icing sugar and whisk together until all combined and a smooth paste.
Take the the cooled cake out of the tin carefully and using a spatula spread the Nutella and mascarpone mix generously all over the cake covering the top and sides. Then sprinkle the roughly/coarsely chopped hazelnuts over the cake. Then serve and enjoy…
