Nutella traybake cake

If you're a blogger or journalist then you usually get at least one email a day giving you details of yet another 'national day'. Most are random and obscure but one I can really show some enthusiasm for is World Nutella Day. Back in 2007 an American blogger by the name of Sara Russo decided to celebrate her love of this chocolate and hazelnut spread by creating a whole day, February 5th, devoted to it. In 2015 the day itself started to be organised by Nutella themselves so it is now bigger than ever.

In most cases where Nutella is used the treatment of it is very simple – it's usually just spread on bread or pancakes. With this mind this is a very simple recipe with minimal ingredients; in fact just three. Unlike a standard chocolate cake the hazelnuts in Nutella really standout and make a difference to the flavour.

Equipment: 7in (18cm) x 11in (28cm) Baking tin lined, large bowl, electric whisk/beaters


8½oz (240g) Nutella or chocolate and hazelnut spread
2 Eggs
4oz (115g) Plain flour


Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark.
In a large bowl put all the ingredients and beat together until well mixed.
Transfer to the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes.
Leave to cool in the tin before cooling.
