For Boxing Day I was told to bring nothing, but the desire to bake something got the better of me. I chose a chocolate cake off the internet. It wasn’t the best cake I’ve ever made: a little too dry for my liking but it used the ingredients I had at hand…namely limited eggs.
When it came to frosting the cake though, I was well and truly stuck- two tablespoons of butter left- so my usual buttercream wasn’t happening. So I raided the pantry and fridge and came up with nutella frosting that is definitely a keeper!
Now, this is not healthy food by any means. In fact, it is quite unhealthy! But it’s a treat and sometimes you need a treat. The frosting was beyond any doubt amazing, as a sometimes food.
