I love me some yummy Nutella coffee cake! It is so satisfying and ultra delicious!
The first time I had this coffee cake was when Christopher and I went to a cute little breakfast/lunch place nearby. They have great coffee and delicious baked goods. Christopher sometimes gets a peanut butter banana crepe and I mostly get an egg sandwich on a croissant.
BUT, I always get a honking piece of their Nutella coffee cake to go. We are talking delish. I looked at it and said to myself, I can make this. I’ve made coffee cake for years so I’ll just add some Nutella. I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out.
And that’s exactly what I did. The fun part is I had their piece of Nutella coffee cake so I could compare mine to theirs.
Successful or no?
No. I was close, but it wasn’t the same. It took me 3 tries and three additional trips to that little cute shop to buy more coffee cake, which, let me tell you, was a hardship.

How to make a Nutella coffee cake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
The following recipe is for a 6 cup bundt pan. I was afraid to use my 12 cup bundt because, well, I love this yummy Nutella coffee cake and I would be devising ways to eat it. The results would not be pretty.
Here are some of the ingredients: sprouted spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
I get my medium mixing bowl and dump all of the above ingredients into it. I combine them with my dough cutter. I love that kitchen implement. *Kissy, kissy!*
I get out my stand mixer and cream together some sugar and room temperature butter. I add the eggs one at a time along with some vanilla until everything is combined.
Next, I slowly add the flour and once that’s fully combined, I shut off the hard working mixer and fold in the yogurt by hand.
Here comes the star of the show!!
I’m quivering in delight.
Time to grease the bundt pan. And when you think it is greased enough, you need to grease it some more. Feel me?
Now, I take half the batter and scoop it into the bundt pan.
Because I made this particular cake in the middle of a heat wave, there was no need to heat up the Nutella so it would spread better. It was already soft and spreadable.
I plop several tablespoons of Nutella on top of the batter.
Swirl-a-whirl is my latest contribution to the culinary lexicon. I’m sure it will be in the next edition of the Oxford English Dictionary!
Time to take my knife and swirl-a-whirl it around in the Nutella, so it looks like this.
I glop the rest of the batter on top and repeat the Nutella layer, swirl-a-whirling it through the batter.
Crumble topping is my friend
Time to make the crumble topping. In a small mixing bowl, I add 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
I mix it all together with my handy dandy spatula and sprinkle it on top of the unbaked coffee cake. I didn’t use all of it, but you can if you would like. I give you permission.
Time to put it in the oven and bake it for 40 minutes.
It is done. I want a piece, but I have to wait for the cake to cool before removing it from the pan.
After it has cooled, I transfer it onto a plate and cut into it. I lovingly place the yummy Nutella coffee cake slice on a plate.
Look at those swirls!
Time for my taste test.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe
