Ingredients

  • Nutella Chocolate Cake:
  • 220g all purpose flour

  • 210g caster sugar

  • 40g cocoa powder

  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 150g buttermilk/yogurt (whisk it well before use)

  • 150g cold coffee

  • 130 ml oil (vegetable or sunflower)

  • 2-3 tbsp Nutella

  • Nutella Buttercream:
  • 3tbsp Nutella

  • 140g softened unsalted butter

  • 250g icing sugar

  • 1-2 tbsp double cream

  • Nutella Ganache:
  • 90g 50% dark chocolate

  • 50g unsalted butter

  • 50g double cream

Directions

  • In a bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, buttermilk, Nutella & cold coffee until combined. Sieve in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa powder and salt. Using a spatula mix it well. Grease and line 2 6” cake tin. Pour the batter and bake it at 170 C for 20-25mins
  • Now, using a stand or hand mixer whip the butter for 5mins until pale, light & fluffy. Add icing sugar and whisk for 2mins. Add the Nutella and double cream and whisk till it’s smooth.
  • Heat the cream on medium to low heat. Add the heated cream onto butter and chocolate and Nutella and whisk well. Set it aside for it to cool and firm a bit.
  • Assemble the cake by layering it with cooled ganache and cover it light sort of a crumb coat. I have gone for a semi-naked cake look. Top it with buttercream swirls.
