You’re going to start thinking I’m sponsored by Nutella soon. I wish! I just love seeing really really easy recipes and as I don’t have much time to bake, when I do see something I want to make, I grasp the opportunity as quickly as possible. I wasn’t planning to do any baking at all yesterday. I know it was father’s day and maybe my husband deserved a cake for being such a good dad to our little girl, but the thought of making a cake had not crossed my mind until suddenly, looking on Facebook I saw a recipe that a friend had shared – 3 ingredient Nutella Brownies. I love Nutella and I do love brownies. And I could not believe how easy this recipe looked. Despite having cheesecake in the fridge already, I could not resist making this cake.
So did it live up to expectations? Well, it wasn’t quite a brownie but it did taste like one. It was a bit drier than I’d have liked but that may have been my fault as I could have taken it out of the oven a little earlier. I’d say, if you were expecting brownies, you would be a little disappointed, but if you were expecting a chocolate cake, you’d be perfectly happy. I would like to make it again and next time I will take it out of the oven earlier and hopefully have a more brownie-like cake.

How to Make Nutella Brownies
1. Mix all the ingredients together.
2. Line a tin with baking parchment and grease the sides. Pour the mixture in.
3. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 180C. This will give you a cake-like texture. Next time I will cook it for just 20 minutes.
