A little while back this recipe was making the rounds. I’d made a silly deal with Lexi from Multiplay that if I made her cake, we’d get an extra press pass. So I decided to combine the two and make her the brownie cake. Sadly she wasn’t able to get one authorized, but never mind. I had fun, she had cake and you get an article about it.
The theory behind this cake is that Nutella already has fat, milk, chocolate and sugar in it, some of the things you’d made a brownie out of anyway. So why not just use something that’s already there and just add a few bits to it? Now I did cheat a little and used supermarket own-brand chocolate spread, and because I wanted a cake instead of brownies I put it all in one tray.
- 280g Nutella
- 62g flour
- 2 eggs
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Put ingredients in a pan. Cook at 180°c for 30 minutes. Boom, done.
Because this was for Lexi, and I had some pre-made butter icing I wanted to use up, I went ahead and iced it with a heart and her name. Lexi and the other’s in the MPUK offices said it was lovely 🙂 Keep an eye out, we should soon be putting up a Youtube vid of me making this so you can cook along, or just have a laugh.
