NUTELLA CHOCOLATE CAKE

I definitely love Nutella. i like peanut butter, however Nutella? It’s nutty and chocolatey. excellent of each worlds. pass me a spoon! I couldn’t wait to stuff this chocolate cake with it. The Nutella icing is buttery, sweet heaven.

The chocolate cake layers are my favorite chocolate slow-bake cake. It bakes at three hundred stages, in place of 350 – that’s now not a typo. And it’s the moistest chocolate cake you’ll ever have. I desired a most icing to cake ratio, so I made four layers of cake in order that I may want to have masses of Nutella icing piled between them. I simplest have three 8 inch pans though, so I baked  cakes at a time.
