A very nice-tasting cake but I found it didn't rise as much as I thought it would. Also, the nutella tended to settle where I daubed it, despite the fact that I swirled it through the batter with a knife. It wasn't very nice biting into solid lumps of nutella.
This cake is beautiful. I love cake recipes like this that are easy and delicious. Jamie Oliver also has an exact recipe of this cake on his website. I will be making this again. I used a 9" nonstick dark round cake pan. Baked @ 350 F, it was done in about 45 minutes, and I did the toothpick test. The cake was moist and fluffy.
I was going to post this recipe, but had the sense to look first! A really gorgeous cake - and plenty sweet enough for European tastes! I softened the Nutella and spread it over - which prevents the risk of it sinking to the bottom. Didn't have hazelnuts so used home-made pistachio praline. A great success!!
This is grrreat, it's just like a coffee cake! I thought I had hazelnuts left after I made my nutella cookies but I couldn't find them so I used pecans. I made it in an 8" sprinform pan and baked for 65 minutes. I din't measure out the nutella, just put spoonfuls of it in dabs and then I forgot to swirl it through. I wish I had put more nutella in as what was in there tasted so good when you got a mouthful of it. I made it this morning and there's only 1/2 left now. Very good recipe Marie, DH and DD and I all enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.
The cake is very dry and crumbly and not sweet at all. The sweetness only comes from the Nutella. This will be okay as a breakfast coffee cake but don't serve it as dessert. By the way, mine was ready in 45 minutes!
I was somewhat disappointed with this cake. I found it a little dry and think it really needs to be eaten when fresh (or frozen until later as nelly suggests). I think the cooking temperature is incorrect? 180 degrees Fahrenheit is only about 85 degrees centigrade - so I baked it at 180 degrees centigrade. Fortunately, I tested it after 45 minutes, as it was well and truly ready by then. I am tempted to give 3 stars, but my son and his girlfriend enjoyed it and she asked for the recipe, so perhaps it is just a matter of personal taste. So, thank you for posting.
