Nutella Yoghurt Cake

Today is World Nutella Day
I never really made an effort to bake anything with Nutella on this particular day
Yesterday I had this thought to do so, since Nutella is one of my family favorite, too, so why not
So, I baked this Nutella yoghurt cake. I used recipe from Happy Home Baking

Anyway, yesterday was not a baking with smart time management
By the time I finished doing the mixing and the batter ready to be transported to the oven, it's time for me to pick up Abby from school
In the end, the batter waited for me to come back for close to an hour
I mixed briefly with spatula, poured into the pan and knocked a few times to get rid of the bubbles but apparently that was not good enough, cos the best was not to let the batter waiting

So, pardon me for the holes in my cake
Rest assured, this cake is soft and yummy, with minimum crumbs

I always love this sexy crack on butter cake :)

Look at those holes.. It should be fine smooth texture :(

But believe me, this cake is one of those worth trying :)
I baked half recipe using 18cm loaf pan - greased and floured, recipe below
What you need:
113g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
43g butter, soften at room temperature
1 1/2 tbsp Nutella spread (I used 2tbsp)
75g sugar (I used 60g)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla essence (I used chocolate emulco)
1/2 cup plain, non-fat yogurt
  1. Preheat oven at 180 degC
  2. Sift together cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside
  3. Mix together yoghurt and vanilla essence
  4. Beat butter and nutella for 1 min. Gradually add in sugar and beat on high speed for about 3 mins
  5. Add in the eggs slowly, beat constantly for about 2 mins
  6. On low speed, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture. On medium-high speed, beat in 1/2 of the yoghurt mixture. On low speed, beat in half of the remaining flour mixture. On high speed, beat in the remaining yoghurt mixture. On low speed, beat in the rest of the flour mixture
  7. Pour batter into into the pan, level it
  8. Bake for about 30-35 minutes (half recipe) til skewer comes out clean
  9. Let cool in pan for 10 mins and transfer to cooling rack 


  1. Hi, Alice, I have a bottle of Nutella which I bought 2 months ago that hasn't been opened. The reason I bought it is to test on my son who is generally allergic to nuts but after seeing a specialist, I was asked to feed him 1 type of nut a week but I'm lazy, so far, only try macadamia nuts, cashew nuts, pistachios and almonds. Just this afternoon, I gave him little bit of Nutella, will give him more tomorrow & if he is ok, I'm going to try this recipe as both the Nutella and yoghurt sound very interesting to me!

  2. This sounds nice, a chocolate yogurt cake. I dont have nutella, but am planning to make my own chocolate spread, so will make extra for this too, thanks.

  3. Anything with Nutella in it will be a success. It is a cooking 'law'. In all seriousness this looks like a delicious cake. Thanks for posting it!

  4. Alice, this is definitely a great idea to use Nutella and Yogurt as the ingredients when baking cake. Yogurt to replace milk, Nutella is for better taste.
