  • Preheat oven to 180C/gas4/fan 160C. Butter and line the base of a 20cm/8" round cake tin.
  • Put the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and milk into a bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes, or with an electric hand mixer for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Tip 3/4 of the mixture into the tin, spread it level, then spoon Nutella on in four blobs.
  • Top with the remaining mixture, swirl a few times with a skewer, then smooth to cover the Nutella. Sprinkle with the nuts.
  • Bake for 1 hour - 1 hour 10 mins, until risen, nicely browned, feels firm to the touch and springs back when lightly pressed. (Cover with foil if it starts to brown too quickly). Cool in the tin for 10 mins. then turn out, peel off the paper and cool on a wire rack.
  • Wrap tightly in double thick foil to keep fresh for up to a week. (Never necessary in my experience!)

    What 1 Other has said

    • very nice..everyone loved it. However I placed lots of little blobs of nutella on the mixture as opposed to 4 dollops. The nutella sank to the bottom; don't know if that was supposed to happen but didn't affect the taste!
