Pumpkin Nutella Cakes
These individual pumpkin flavored cakes are moist and fluffy and filled with a delicious Nutella spread.
I came up with this recipe several years ago and it’s one that I make every year, but I haven’t posted about them since my initial post back in 2011. This past weekend, I did my first ever cooking demo and this was one of the recipes I shared during the demo. I plan on sharing some more photos from the demo in a future post, but to give a quick summary, I was a nervous wreck the week leading up the demo and wishing I hadn’t agreed to do it. But it happened and I’m glad I went through with it. Perhaps the best thing to come out of the experience was the chance to meet a very well known chef I’ve admired for many years, Chef Bernard Guillas. On the morning of the event, I learned that his staff was in charge of making batches of my recipes for the attendees to sample. Can you imagine having an acclaimed chef making one of your recipes? And as if that wasn’t enough, he told me several times how much he and his staff had loved the Pumpkin Nutella cakes. Crazy right?
So, I decided it was high time to do an updated post on my Pumpkin Nutella Cakes. It’s always been one of my favorites, but having an award winning executive chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author tell you that he really enjoyed the cakes means they have to be good right?
Here are some of the ones his team made for the cooking event. I swear, they look better than mine even though they used my recipe. Also, I thought it was quite funny that the chef took the time to style them so he could take a few photos too.
But back to these cakes. You can leave them as is and they look quite elegant. Or you can decorate them a little, to make them look a little more like pumpkins. Or you can decorate them even further like I originally did when I came up with this idea, and make them into Jack O’-Lanterns (faces drawn by Mr. K because I cannot draw).
