Nutella Brownie

Last week was a massive baking week for me! I’m baking all the time at the moment. At work, in class and at home! On Tuesday, it was my boyfriend’s birthday. We went out for dinner with a big group of his family and friends and I was on cake duty. For 30 people. So I made 3 cakes! I made a no-bake lemon cheesecake at my boyfriend’s request, which very sadly did not set properly and therefore flopped into a puddle on the plate 😦 …but it still tasted pretty good. I made a lemon curd to mix in with the cream cheese and sugar and finished it with fresh berries on top. I also made this with a gluten free base because we had a few people are gluten intolerant. So I’ll work on getting this cheesecake to set and get back to you πŸ™‚

The next thing I made was a tiramisu! A crowd favourite πŸ™‚ I used frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, just because that’s what I had in the cupboard! My grandma brought it around to me a few months ago because she didn’t need and I knew I could use it in some sort of dessert πŸ™‚ And the tiramisu was a hit! I even got a praise from an italian saying is was better than his nonna’s tiramisu! What a compliment!

And the third cake I made, is the one I am most proud of. I experimented a little with this one. It’s a white chocolate and raspberry torte. I made a white chocolate mud cake base, a raspberry custard middle and a white chocolate mousse top layer, finished off with fresh raspberries πŸ™‚ This will definitely be on the blog for you soon πŸ™‚

I also had an order put in this week! I had a request from my dad’s work to make a big cake to serve everyone on his team πŸ™‚ So I made a big square chocolate mud cake, with dark chocolate ganache and finished with some white chocolate decorations πŸ™‚ I think the cake went down well because I have an order for another cake in 2 weeks time for a caramel mud cake this time!

However today I have a Nutella Brownie recipe. And it is SO easy! Go make it now! It just involves mixing everything together and baking it and the result it a delicious, gooey, rich brownie made even more delicious with Nutella πŸ™‚

This recipe is adapted from a fantastic brownie recipe that was given to me by a family friend and it has been a favourite in both our households for years πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the salt and gradually add this mixture to the wet ingredients until combined. Spread into greased dish and bake for 40-45 mins.
