Growing up in an Italian family, one treat we had almost always was Nutella. I remember many times coming home from school, seeing my mom with a teaspoon inside the container scooping out her afternoon snack. So good. This recipe is in honor of my mother who loved Nutella.
This Nutella pound cake recipe is easy and can be done during the week for a quick treat. If you wish to make it even more chocolaty, add more Nutella.
12 oz unsalted Butter softened
1.5 cups Sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup Nutella
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease 9 inch round pan and 1 loaf pan.
Cream butter and sugar in a mixer. Add vanilla extract.
Add eggs gradually and beat thoroughly after each addition.
In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder.
Alternate adding milk and flour mixture slowly to the butter mixture. Then mix for 2 minutes till light and airy.
Transfer the mixture to the pans.
Bake for 1 hour.
Let cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Melt 2 tablespoons of Nutella in the microwave bowl for 30-45 minutes or until watery.
Drizzle on the top of the cake and serve.
I hope you try this recipe. It's great with a big glass of milk. Enjoy!
