Nutella Vanilla Butter Cake

I know I said I was gonna share some savoury treats with you in my next posting. BUT not today, cos today I was so inspired to try this cake after reading Dana's blog. And I just have to share this with you today as I'm still rather chuffed by how they turned out and TASTED.
I used a recipe for a 9" x 5" loaf cake for 8 mini loaf ones instead. We added less sugar, spooned more of the sinful Nutella and sprinkled tops with chopped hazelnuts to be more decadent. We are those kind of bakers who like to go the whole nine yards. Why scrimp on goodness? We just went a little mental over them. Nutella would be very proud of us. LOL.
As I write about this, there a only 3 loaf cakes left as our lovely friend, Carolyn, Kristian and myself have been tea-ing for almost 3 hours. Lovely company, good laughs, scrumptious cakes. Bliss. It's these moments in life you remember and treasure always.

Say cheeeese : ))

Whoops, I have done it again. Have been slacking in the blog posting department. Is not that we have not made anything new to share but the photo shots were not turning out to my liking and we were swamped towards end of last month with Ramadhan and celebration cake orders. I shall upgrade to a better camera soon AND learn the tricks of food photography, I SHALL, I SHALL, I SHALL. Any pros out there willing to give me some tips on turning our fab food into beautiful fab food, please share with me and favor shall be returned with, you guessed it, Bakerellaz baked goods ; )

A double layer mascarpone cheesecake with dark chocolate crumb sides and mini meringue topping. Available for order. RM80/kg.

I made these cheesecake cups for my mum's birthday. A change from the usual birthday cake and lighter in calories too I might add ; ) Two flavors - one was black cherry lemon cheesecake topped with black cherries and the other was praline cheesecake topped with hazelnut praline. Both had biscuit base. I boxed them in a gift box tied with a satin gold ribbon (sorry didn't take pic). These are also great for kids parties or picnics/barbeques. Available for order. RM55/doz.

There's check back tomorrow. Some savouries this time and coming up, some chic cookies. Tres chic.
