Nutella Banana Cake


Hi there! Look what I’ve got! Nutella! Yeah! I mean c’mon who doesn’t love nutella? Everytime my parents bring nutella from the grocery I have a little dance inside my head. But almost any hazelnut chocolate spread makes me happy. Hmm…note to self make my own hazelnut spread/gianduja. It just makes everything more awesome. Toast in the morning? Put nutella and bam!

Here’s another example: Banana cake batter by itself.

yay! (if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that yay is an overused “word” for me…it’s true even in real life. I don’t know. Lazy vocabulary?)
Anyways…Banana Nutella Cake. ta-dah!

I got this recipe from The Caker who is quite a famous baker here in Auckland because she’s always catering to fashion events. I’ve always wanted to try one of her cakes but they were a tad expensive for me. So…yay! Can’t wait to try her other recipes. She always had such fashionable advertising for her stuff it’s so cool.

You’re supposed to top this with chopped hazelnuts or hazelnut pralines. I made do with some chopped almonds and chopped hokey pokey cookies. Mmm. hokey pokey. They’re honeycomb toffee-ish cookies wrapped in chocolate. Golden sweetness…
