Almond Joy Nutella Cake

I wanted to make a loaf cake/quick bread the other night, but as it would turn out, I don’t have any bread loaf pans. Um, whoops.

I remember breaking one, and I’ve been making free-form loaves of bread lately, so I guess it hadn’t really clicked. Crazy stuff. Luckily I found a bundt pant and doubled the baking soda called for to poof it up a little more. I think it turned out pretty well. No ill effects or anything.

It’s not too coconut-y, but I really don’t think something can ever contain too much coconut.

If you like nutella or other chocolate hazelnut combos, you’ll probably like this cake. I should have saved some for my landlady. She loves cake.


I just did an easy glaze once it cooled off and mixed in some toasted almonds and coconut. You probably don’t want to serve this as a breakfast quick bread. With the icing it fell into Dessert Land pretty quickly (marshmallow pillows). Oh, and I put chocolate syrup over it before the icing.

    My two very favorite sweet treats combined in one recipe name! I will most definitely need to try this. P.S. – if this was your glaze/no glaze conundrum, I'm glad you went with glaze! Might as well go whole hog.
