Vanilla and nutella marble cake drizzled with nutella ganache has a tender and moist crumb that just melts in your mouth.Wonderfully rich and buttery cake.
When I am not sure whether to make a vanilla cake or a chocolate cake, a marble cake is the way to go. A bit of vanilla and a bit of chocolate . In my house chocolate always wins.
This vanilla and nutella marble cake begins with a simple yet delicious vanilla cake recipe. The cake batter contains equal measurement of butter, sugar and self raising flour. Also in the batter are 5 eggs and sour cream to make the cake extra rich, moist and tender. I recommend using a scale to measure out the ingredients for this recipe. With scales you get an accurate measurement. One of the first tools I ever invested in when I started baking was a scale and it was money well spent.
Split the batter into two and one half mixed with nutella and cocoa powder.
Vanilla and nutella mixtures are placed alternatively in a well greased bundt tin then swirled together using a knife to create the marble effect( becareful not to overmix, you don’t want to loose the marble effect). Then baked in a pre-heated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
When you cut into the cake what you presented with are lovely swirls of nutella and vanilla cake. And because we love nutella so much i made a chocolate nutella ganache and poured it over the cake for the extra nutella flavour.
