Nutella Cinnamon Coffee Cake

National events being disturbing as they are, I find myself seeking the comfort of home, family and friends this weekend. Jessica and I spent time making holiday plans. Our friends, Michael and Martha, joined us for an old fashioned chili supper and Halloween candy giving. And a sleepless night provided me time to seek meditation and mindfulness in a mixing bowl and baking pan.

Earlier this week, I came upon a guy boasting of having perfected a Nutella mousse on Giada de Laurentiss' website. My only Nutella concoction has been a Nutella Mocha Frappe that I have made frequently over the summer. I must say J.C.'s post got me thinking this morning. I believe I have a recipe submission for the upcoming World Nutella Day!

Nutella Cinnamon Coffee Cake 1 8" x 8" cake

2 cups All purpose flour
1 1/2 tea Baking powder
1 tea Baking soda
1/2 tea Salt
1 cup Sugar
3 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 tea Cinnamon
1 stick Butter
2 large Eggs
1 cup Sour cream
1 tea Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread

Bring butter, eggs and sour cream to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray baking pan with non-stick spray or grease with butter. Mix sugar and cinnamon together, put aside. Combine remaining dry ingredients in a bowl. For 5 minutes, cream butter and sugar together, until light and fluffy. To butter-sugar mixture, add eggs, fully incorporating one at a time. Continue combining wet ingredients with the sour cream and vanilla.

Mix together flour into wet ingredients in two batches. Mix lightly. Spread 1/2 of cake batter into prepared pan. Melt Nutella in microwave 15-30 seconds, just until it will pour in a stream. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cinnamon sugar over the cake batter. Pour and spread the melted Nutella next. Spread the remaining cake batter over the filling, spreading carefully to cover the Nutella. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar. Bake for 30-35 min or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.

A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

Look into my web site; processors in Boquete are paying farmers $6.25-$7.25 per lata. Category:

Howdy, I do think your site could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks
fine but when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic site!
