If you’re a fan of brownies – then this one is for you, big boys & girls! A rich chocolatey Nutella walnut cake that is ridiculously simple to make. All it’s missing is a scoop of vanilla gelato or a handful of fresh strawberries on the side. Originally translated from Italian to English 5 years ago, we misunderstood the chocolate they were calling for & used nutella instead.  It was so delicious, we never fixed the mistake & have been using Nutella in the recipe ever since!

4 eggs

125 g sugar

125 g chopped walnuts

75 g Nutella

75 g dark chocolate

125 g butter

75 g flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

Beat the eggs with the sugar.

Melt the butter, chocolate & nutella together.

Combine the chocolate mixture with the eggs & stir in the dry ingredients.

Butter & flour a spring form pan.  Add mixture to pan.

Cook at 350 F / 185 C  for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
