It's Cake Time!: Cinnamon and Nutella Cake

Nutella is one of my favorite ingredients: I love it on toast, in cupcake frosting, and anything else you can think of to use it in creatively (Udita keeps going on about frozen Nutella hot chocolates which I have yet to try but sound amazing, if not a total oxymoron).

In the mood for a coffee cake that would go well with a cup of hot steaming black Illy, I thumbed through the pages of my newly purchased BBC GoodFood 101 Cakes & Bakes  (a bargain at £3.48 from Amazon) and found this quick and easy recipe.  I love this recipe book because it's about the size of my palm and is perfect for those days where you just want to make a simple variation of a sponge cake and not necessarily grand cakes of Hummingbird or Magnolia proportions (not to mention that the instructions are basically, "dump all the ingredients in a bowl.  Mix, bake, enjoy.").  Perfect for lazy days (I'll leave the macaroon making for next weekend, Shirin - perhaps).

For some reason, my Nutella settled on the bottom of the cake (which you can see in the picture), so I think I'll have to "swirl" it a little more thoroughly next time.  Otherwise, it tasted great and went well with the black coffee.  I'd encourage you to "give it a go," as people say in this country.


  1. i want to know what frozen hot chocolate is... i don't understand. but i am pretty sure i would like it. hell, i think i would like anything with the words nutella or chocolate attached to it. ;)

  2. I don't understand either, but I sure as heck wanna try!
