This looks great, Gina!

I don't have hazelnuts at home, and don't plan on buying a whole packet just to try this out. Do you think it's ok if I exclude the nuts and increase the amount of nutella?

I'm a sucker for dark brown cakes. If I increase the amount of nutella, would it be darker brown in colour?

Last question: can i substitute vanilla essence with vanilla extract?

Thanks! Hope to try this this weekend. Very Happy

Melisa

you can omit the nuts if you like. the packet of Hazelnuts (ground) I bought was only 100g(tiny packet). At the Hougang Green shopping centre(indian shop).

as for the spread, yes, can add a bit more..maybe another 1.5 tbsp..or the cake will be extremely sweet. If you want it to be darker, then add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder.

Thanks, Gina!

Maybe I'll add more Nutella and cut down on the brown sugar. Might add the cocoa powder too! Will try and let you know.

I used the 8 inches by 4 inches oblong pan(disposal type). I filled it halfway..thus you can see that my cake is rather short. Coz I wanted to give 1 to my aunt and 1 to my cousin(Spice Girl)

I made this tonight. I put in 4 tbsp of Nutella, 180 g of sugar and 1.5 tbsp of cocoa powder. The taste and texture of the cake is fine.. however, it burnt after 25 mins in the oven! :shock:

I'm using a built in electrolux oven. Could this be the reason? With other recipes, the timing is always a bit off, but not by 20 mins! :( FYI, i used a 8x8 square tin. Cake is quite short, maybe 1.5 inches?

I got my maid to cut away all the burnt edges, leaving only the centre. It's really nice and light! Not very nutella-y though. Perhaps it's because I left out the ground hazelnuts. Tastes like a light and moist chocolate cake.

Let me KP here!

You have a burnt cake.

I think the oven temperature is too high! Usually for cakes the baking temperature should be between 170C - 180C.

Did you place it on the lower rack? I made yesterday afternoon and had to adjust the time too.

The nutella cake came out okay. As mentioned, I had to adjust the baking time. Neighbourhood kids liked it. *lol* As for the pound cake, it was okay. Not as sweet or as greasy as butter cake. Came out a little on the dry side with a crunchy top. I'm going to have to tweak with the recipe a little.

ground hazelnuts can be found at the Hougang Green Shopping centre(the Indian spice shop).

to all others trying this cake

i set the temp to 200 C and baked for 45 mins. the top was hard crusty which I liked..the inside texture was soft like the chocolate cake from Lana's. Although some parts are burnt while the other parts were okay. my Tefal oven cannot bake anything evenly. there will always be some spots getting burnt. regardless of temp I used.

I'm going to try this again with my MW Convection oven and at the same temp at 200C.

Hi Gina

i have the same Tefal oven that u are using. i think i hve the same prob as u do. the top of the cake is crusty and most of the time is cracked. as if an earthquake just occured. i never have a smooth surface.

last night, after 45 mins in the oven, the inside of the cake was still very moist, looked uncook to me.

so i covered the top with foil and bake for another 15 mins in 200C. this time round the cake was cooked thoroughly, without any chao-tah edges.


ps. i halved the recipe.
