Recipe Alert: Brown Butter Nutella Swirl


Quarantine has surely had some benefits. A lot of people have taken to baking and have been asking me for simple recipes without any impossible to find ingredients.

Here goes!


* 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup milk, room temperature
* 1/2 cup Nutella


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan. Line bottom with parchment or wax paper, or dust lightly with flour.

Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder.

Beat butter and white sugar until fluffy and light in color. Gradually add eggs, beating well after each addition; stir in vanilla. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Stir until just blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Drizzle over the Nutella and use a toothpick to swirl.

Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for until cake springs back when lightly touched, about 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto wire rack to cool completely.

Hope you enjoy this!
