Nutella and coffee cake

 Me again and once again I'm writing about yet another cake I have made. Sorry I didn't post mid week last week but Ive been a tiny bit busy but I promise I will make more time next week. Now my approach to baking is a bit weird, if I cant find one ingredient or there is something in my kitchen cupboard that needs to be used, then in a cake it goes.

I'm going to stop rambling on now and get on with the recipe. This is probably the quickest and easiest cake I've made to date and it still tasted delicious.

You will need;
100g butter.
100g nutella.
4 eggs.
200g sugar.
200g self-raising flour
1/2tsp baking powder.

You will also need about 400g butter cream, I took the lazy persons way out and got some from Morrison's and then added about 50g nutella and a teaspoon of cold coffee.

So since this recipe is so simple there aren't many pictures today, so here goes.....

Step 1;
Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, oh this is just a little side note that I need to tell you all, at the weekend I got myself a Breville mixer and blender, I don't have my own place to put them in but I'm determined to have them in my own kitchen.

Step 2;
Split the mixture between two 9inch cake pans and bake for about 20-25minutes. When they have finished baking leave them to cool until they are completely cool.

Step 3;
Mix together all the butter cream and check to see if the taste is how you like it, I'm not a massive coffee love so I only added a tiny bit but its completely up to you how much you add.

Step 4;
Put about 1/3 of the butter cream on the first half of the cake and spread evenly, I sprinkled a few chocolate sprinkles on to add a bit of crunch but you can add anything you like. Next put the top layer on and then put the rest of the butter cream on the top and then decorate, I had some kit Kat's I wasn't going to eat so I made a little pattern on the top.

I almost forgot to tell you, I also added 2tsp of biscuit spread. This is the most delicious thing ever, your supposed to put it on toast but me and my sister have been known to eat it straight from the jar, don't just us please we just like biscuit spread, you should all try it. Actually let me know in the comments if anyone has had this delicious spread.

Bye for now xxx
