You can make this recipe either into a ring mold as a cake or else as cupcakes with a yummy Nutella Frosting!  Either way it is really delicious!  A very straight forward no-fuss recipe, ready in minutes!  I have used AGLUTEN Flour (Miscela per Torte) in this recipe.  Amounts might vary when swopping with other flour mixes.  The cake is lovely simply dusted with icing sugar, but if you wish to frost the cupcakes, I am sharing the recipe below as well. This makes approx 12 cupcakes.

Ingredients

  • 200g AGLUTEN Flour (Miscela per Torte)
  • 70g Almond Flour
  • 50g Potato Starch or Corn Starch
  • 50g Tapioca Starch
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 70g Castor Sugar
  • 70g Peanut Oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Nutella

Method


Combine the flour, almond flour, starches and baking powder in a bowl.

Grease and line a cake tin or use cupcake liners if you prefer to make cupcakes.

Preheat oven to 180C.

Beat the eggs with the sugar until creamy.  Add the oil, combine and then add the flour.  Using a spatula, fold it in. Do not overmix.

Pour the mix in the cake tin or divide equally between the cupcake liners.

Melt half a cup of Nutella either in a baine marie or in short bursts in the microwave until it softens.

Drop a teaspoon in each cupcake or around the cake if making a cake. Using a skewer, swirl the nutella into the cake batter.

Place in the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle.

Decorate with Nutella Frosting.

Ingredients for the Nutella Frosting

  • 50g butter
  • 220g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder1 tsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 4 large tbsp Nutella

Method


Using a hand held mixer, cream the butter with the icing sugar, add the cocoa, milk and vanilla until well combined.  Stir in the Nutella and continue mixing until it is lightly and fluffy.

If the mix is too thick, add a couple of drops of milk.

Pipe or use spatula to cover cupcakes. Use sprinkles on top if desired.
