Coffee-Nutella Swirl Pound Cake in Honor Of Sacramento’s Speciality Coffee Week
I am a coffee lover as well as a lover of Nutella as well as a lover of cake. Therefore, Coffee-Nutella Swirl Pound Cake makes me very, very happy. I thought this was a perfect week to share this simple recipe, as here in Sacramento the local speciality coffee community is celebrating their dedication to quality, ethics and dedication in relations to all things coffee during Speciality Coffee Week.Make this Coffee-Nutella Swirl Pound Cake and enjoy it with, yes, a cup of coffee. The subtle coffee flavor and rich hazelnut-chocolaty Nutella swirl will not disappoint. (By the way…. Nutella is very popular in Greece. If you have not drizzled it on Loukoumades – Greek Donut Holes – you simply have not lived.)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon instant espresso coffee (I use Medaglia D'Oro brand)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup Nutella, warmed
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, espresso coffee, and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment combine the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes.)
- Add the slightly beaten eggs and vanilla, and mix until combined.
- Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until combined and smooth, but do not over mix. The mixture should be thick and smooth.
- Pour 1/3 of the cake mixture into the bottom of the greased loaf pan.
- Top with half of the warmed Nutella. Repeat this step one more time. Top with the remaining 1/3 of the cake mixture.
- Take a butter knife and create a figure-8 in the loaf to create the swirl.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes at 325 degrees.
- Allow to cool completely before serving. (haha! yea... right!)
