Happy World Nutella Day! This is the best made up holiday ever.
I absolutely love Nutella. I think I’ve told you before that I own a Nutella T-shirt. It’s about four sizes too big and it’s awesome. It makes a good nightgown.
I first fell in love with Nutella when I visited France when I was a senior in high school. They had Nutella at every breakfast buffet we went to and I became addicted. I would spread Nutella on chocolate croissants and sliced baguette, and eat that with a hot cafe au lait.. Mmm there’s nothing better.
When was the first time you tried Nutella? I want to know!
I think I prefer it over peanut butter, and that’s really saying something.
So I baked these four little molten chocolate Nutella cakes yesterday, because I wanted to share a dessert with you for World Nutella Day…. and I was craving something chocolate. These are so easy to make! And most likely you have everything on hand to make them.
The cake batter is really runny and made with very little flour, but lots of Nutella. The “molten” filling is made from melted semi-sweet chocolate and butter. The cakes only take 12-15 minutes to bake, and then they’re ready to serve with vanilla ice cream. These would be great to make for Valentine’s Day!
Molten Chocolate Nutella Cakes
50 grams semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 large egg, room temperature
1/4 cup warm milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Nutella
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons cake flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter and flour 4 ramekins.
Melt chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk together egg, milk, sugar, Nutella and vanilla until well combined. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt; whisk until just combined. Divide batter into ramekins. Pour chocolate-butter mixture equally into the center of each ramekin.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until risen, barely set, and chocolate is about to volcano out of the center. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
