If you have been following my blog for a while you are probably familiar with my weakness for Nutella. I wish I could eat it any time of the day right out of the jar, in cookies or cup cakes, it wouldn’t really matter.
I found the recipe for this absolutely stunning Nutella swirl bundt cake just recently over at Tracy’s blog Sugarcrafter. It was love at first sight!
This cake consists of a simple vanilla bundt in which Nutella gets swirled into the dough before the baking. It is very easy to prepare and in the oven in no time. My family and our visiting friends gave it big thumbs up. This is an absolute keeper recipe.
|Nutella Swirl Bundt Cake|| || |
- 1½ sticks (171 g) unsalted butter, at room temp.
- 1½ cups (300 g) sugar
- 1½ teaspoons (7.5 ml) good vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs, (High Altitude use 4)
- 3 cups (360 g) flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder (High Altitude use 1¼)
- 1½ teaspoons baking soda (High Altitude use 1)
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 12 ounces (340 g) plain Greek yogurt, (Kirsten used 5 oz. sour cream + 7 oz. plain yogurt)
- ¾ cup (220 g) Nutella, warmed slightly in the microwave for better spreading
- confectioners sugar
- Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease a 10 inch (12 cup) bundt pan, set aside.
- In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream the butter and sugar on medium speed. About 4 minutes.
- Add the eggs, one at a time and mix well. Don't forget to scrape the bowl. Add vanilla.
- Mix in the yogurt until well incorporated.
- Slowly add the flour mixture until well combined. Don't over mix!
- Pour ⅓ of the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spread ½ of the warmed Nutella evenly over the batter. Pour half of the remaining batter over the Nutella layer and spread with the left over Nutella. Pour the rest off the batter in the pan. Swirl the batter evenly with a knife.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean. Mine took 45 minutes on 350 F Convection.
- Let cool in the pan and dust lightly with confectioners before serving. Enjoy!
