A while back I made four ingredient Nutella cakes. It’s still one of my favorite easy Nutella recipes because the Nutella taste is so strong. This weekend I decided to try experimenting with a Nutella and peanut butter mix.
Despite both being spreads, peanut butter is much thicker than Nutella so the cake batter was much thicker than I anticipated. The cakes themselves remain moist though. I think next time I might cut down a little more on the peanut butter. Or perhaps make the peanut butter a filling for the inside.
I do love how easy the cakes are to make and you can taste both the peanut butter and the Nutella. One bowl, one whisk, very little clean-up.
