Nutella Swirl Pound Cake

Nutella Pound Cake





This Nutella Swirl Pound cake is buttery and chocolatey. This cake was baked on Thursday because my son is refeering in a hockey tournament this weekend and I wanted to have a sweet treat to grab and go between games. I first saw that cake on Val's blog More Than Burnt Toast

You can bake the pound cake without the Nutella. I like to cut it in small cubes and eat it dipped in Chocolate Fondue. A delight.

  2. Nutella is really gaining popularity in the US and seems to be everywhere. When we were in France, it practically dominated an entire isle in the super-marche.

    That is one gorgeous cake. I would love a slice.
