I recently tried Nutella for the first time and I'm a convert. To quote the eloquent Kitty at My Husband Hates Veggies, Nutella really is the bomb diggity. It was on sale at Long's Drugs 2-for-1 so now, of course, I need to make Nutella desserts. This is a cake to take to the office tomorrow, a fast and easy concoction inspired by pantry staples and my jar of Nutella.
I mixed a white cake mix according to package directions, but added a healthy dose of almond extract to taste. I removed one cup of almond cake batter to a small bowl, and mixed in 1/3 cup of Nutella, and 1/4 cup of coconut. I set this aside, and into a bundt pan, I poured 1/2 of the remaining almond cake batter, and then spread dollops of the Nutella Coconut cake batter on top, running a knife through to marble somewhat. I topped this with the remainder of the almond cake batter, and baked according to package directions. When it was baked, I drizzled it with more Nutella and a sprinkle of coconut shavings. You could mix almonds into the Nutella layer, or even in the base of the pan so as to make into the crust, but I kept it simple with almond extract.
Well, it is a success. They like it! Hey Mikey! (Then again, what WON'T coworkers eat?)
