Nutella and Peanut Butter Cake

If you — just like us — belong to a peanut butter and Nutella fan tribe, this cake will take you to heaven: it includes both ingredients that combined together create an unforgettable experience. Obviously this is not the healthiest cake in the World, but I do believe that if you have it from time to time it will do no harm to your waistline nor to your overall healthy diet. But I bet it will bring a smile to your face!

It is a speedily made cake: your oven will probably need more time to heat up than you will need to prepare it. It means that — in case of unexpected guests — you could have it ready in slightly more than half an hour. And you don’t have to worry about ingredients, probably — just like us — you always have them in your cupboard ;-)

INGREDIENTS (for 16 pieces):

250g butter,

6 tbsp Nutella (or other chocolate spread),

90g Demerara sugar,

3 eggs,

80g all purpose flour,

0.75 tsp baking powder,

3 tsp cocoa powder,

1 -2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter,

sunflower oil for greasing.

METHOD:

  1. Preheat a fan oven to 160 Celsius degrees.
  2. Grease with oil and line with baking paper a 15cm x 23cm rectangle (or 20cm square) tin. This video shows a great way how to line a tin with baking paper so that it is very easy later to take the cake out.
  3. Put all the ingredients except for the peanut butter to a food processor and whizz them until combined and smooth; transfer to the baking tin.
  4. Drop small portions of the peanut butter into the cake, trying to push it to the batter; smooth the top.
  5. Bake in the hot oven for 25 minutes.
