Mocha Nutella Layered Cake

          Time really flies, especially during Ramadhan, when we have a long list of things to do..... I've baked several layered cakes & cookies but have not managed to post any entry about them. Last weekend, I baked two Mocha Nutella Layed Cakes, one for my mum & one for my sis. I like baking 2 layered cakes (preferably the same type) at a time as it is more efficient. You see, it takes me about slightly more than an hour if I baked 1 cake only. But if I baked 2, I normally take slightly more than 1 & a half hour. So by spending half an hour more, I get 2 cakes.

           This recipe is by Chef Zaidah which I took from her book, Kek Lapis.  It's basically a chocolate layered cake. This is my first time  baking this cake. Took the risk of baking it for Eid! It's worthwhile as the cake is delicious & moist. Try this if you are still thinking which layered cake to bake for Eid!

500g butter
60g chocolate spread ( nutella)
2 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla essence

20 egg yolk
6 egg white
220 castor sugar
1/2 tbsp ovalette

C (sifted)
150 plain flour ( I used cake flour)
20g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder

  1. Preheat oven at 160 deg C. Use top heat only.
  2. Cream A until softened & mixed thoroughly.
  3. Combine B in a mixing bowl & beat until thick.
  4. Add A & mix thoroughly.
  5. Fold in C.
  6. Pour 2 ladles of batter into a 9x9x3"  (I used 10x7") lined & greased baking pan (Grease & line bottom of pan only). Grill for about 1-2 minutes till golden brown.
  7. Repeat step 6 until finished.
