Little Nutella Cake for Me

Hello! When we last spoke I had just done a 15 miler and ate pancakes. Ahhh. Good times wlEmoticon smile7 Little Nutella Cake for Me

Yesterday was pretty low key, lunch, errands, bad TV – you know the drill…IMG 6003 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Dinner was a broccoli slaw scramble. Oddly enough Ben finds this meal disgusting and had a turkey burger instead. More for me.IMG 6015 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

I had two glasses of SkinnyGirl Sangria – I’m loving it!IMG 6018 600x800 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

My main mission yesterday was buying ingredients for my mom’s birthday cake! I was torn over what recipe to use after twitter friends gave me a ton of ideas. Ultimately, I went with chocolate over carrot cake since it’s 1,000x easier and wouldn’t involve me shaving off my knuckles as I grated a pound of carrots.

I used Sara’s Flourless Nutella cake, mostly because this would give me an excuse to buy Nutella. The ingredients were simple – butter, chocolate, eggs, sugar and nutella. IMG 6020 600x800 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

I got Ben to help in exchange for an early taste of the cake. Here he is making stiff peaks wlEmoticon winkingsmile4 Little Nutella Cake for Me

In the end there was chocolate everywhere! I am the messiest cook baker. It was on my shirt, forearm, all over the counters…and a lot got in my mouth.IMG 6031 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Ta-da! Fresh out of the oven! The added bonus was I had to buy a spring form pan for this recipe and I’ve been wanting one for a while! I found one for $7.99 at a discount store.IMG 6032 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Every time I bake something I make a mini-version in a separate ramekin so I can taste it without cutting into the masterpiece.  IMG 6035 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

We spent the rest of the night trying not to cut into the cake. Vegas had to hold Ben down at one point. IMG 6045 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Not really. Vegas loves to lay on Ben like this. Since cats love fish I gave him a Swedish Fish, he was not pleased.IMG 6041 800x600 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Sundays are a REST DAY so I took a nice little walk with Ben and made breakfast.

Ben calls this Mexican Eggs Benedict…IMG 6053 800x533 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

We shared fruitIMG 6057 800x533 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

and I made eggs and toast (unpictured turkey bacon was in there somewhere)IMG 6068 800x533 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

I cannot wait to show my mom her cake! I hope she likes it wlEmoticon smile7 Little Nutella Cake for Me IMG 6071 800x533 thumb Little Nutella Cake for Me

Okay, late for church – see you later!

    That cake looks really pretty. today I made chocolate donut holes–but they were raw and vegan (I am not a raw foodie or a vegan, but I have friends who are). Mostly flax seed. Those friends are in for a treat and a surprise! ha ha

    Your cake turned out great! For carrot cake I always buy a bag of pre-shredded carrots because I’m too lazy to actually shred them haha
