Nutella Layer Cake
Remember a week ago i told ya that i had baked a cake and it was a disaster?? heheh well even tho it was a disaster, i managed to slice a few pcs and let hb and hairi taste.. they loved it so much that hb encouraged me to gv this cake a try again.. and oh boy, am i glad! the nutella taste was just right and not overpowering and i am sure its gonna be a hit among the kids during Eid!
I didnt hv golden churn butter on hand today so had to use unsalted butter and added 1/2tsp of salt to my flour.. (i prefer golden churn butter for layer cake.. definately tastes much more richer somehow.. or was it just me?? hehhe) anyhow.. today i made sure my cake was baked/grilled properly.. i halfed the recipe and used an 8" instead of 6" square pan cos by using a smaller pan.. layer turned brown too quickly.. (3rd pic was the disaster cake) recipe fm bro rozzan
