Nutella Cake with Sour Cream


My baby turned 8 months on the 3rd. I made this cake for his 8th month birthday. Yes, we celebrate his month birthday. Another chance to bake a cake.:) His big sis asked me to make Nutella cake. She loves home made or should I say home baked cakes. I have tried Nutella Marble Cake earlier but this time, I wanted to try something different. So, after searching for other cake recipes with nutella, I found quite a few and decided to make nutella cake with sour cream. This was my first time to use sour cream in any cake recipe and this cake turned out so soft and moist, perfectly sweet with a subtle flavor of chocolate from nutella..You can use the same recipe and bake cup cake. Just that the baking time will vary. If you want to try a chocolate cake, do try this one. It’s very simple. Like any other cake, mix dry ingredients first, then add wet. Beat the batter and bake. So, lets bake this yummy, moist, nutella cake with sour cream..
