What's not to like about this cake....the texture was dense and yet soft, the taste....buttery with a mixture of chocolatey taste and the gooey hazelnut paste in between....tq Rima who got the recipe from bro rozzan.
I decided to bake this during my break in Ayer Baloi, as much I'd love to try mant different varieties of cakes, but what really satisfies my taste bud is pure simple cakes such as this and Butter Cake! The flavors are not cluttered! And, the verdict after I sandwiched the cakes with Nutella....half were gone in a blink...everyone in the family loved it and Khadijah couldn't stop eating them!

230g caster sugar
10g cocoa powder
6 large eggs

1 tbsp chcocolate paste - I added
1.Beat butter, milk, vanilla together until fluffy, set aside (A).
2.In another bowl whisk eggs, ovalette, water, baking powder, flour and sugar. Beat until fluffy and thick (B).
3.Combine batter A and B, mix well.
4.Remove 1/4 from batter and mix with cocoa powder and chocolate paste.
5.Prepare cake tins, since I was using my small oven, I used two 7x7 inches tins.
6.Marble the batter, use 3 scoops of plain batter and 1 scoop of cocoa batter.
7.Bake at 150C for about 30 minutes.
8.Let cool and spread Nutella in between.
Even though we finished half the cake for tea that day, it definitely tasted much better the next day...I had them for breakfast and tea before I pushed off for KL!
