Has anyone made the Warm Chocolate Hazelnut Cake? Where did you find the Hazelnut Spread and what type of container is it in?

I live in a small rural community and our grocery stores don't offer this ingredient but I will be going to Springfield next weekend.

Thanks for your help.

Cindy,

The Hazlenut Spread is called Nutella. You usually can find it next to the peanut butter. Check out this website to find the closest store to you. You might even want to call the store ahead of time to see if they can hold it for you.

Thanks, Kate. I found a store closer to me than I realized. I knew my fellow Cheffers would come through for me.

I made it once , and thought it was too dry, maybe I over cooked it?? But I followed the directions....
I'd try it again, and just cook it for less time than it called for... my microwave is only a couple years old...so maybe it's hot!
it sure smelled good, and I think with some vanilla ice cream... PERFECT!

I found that the first time I made it, it was very runny on the bottom (I also did it without the nuts) and cooked for the 9 min (new microwave too)

the second time, same microwave, 11 min with the nuts, turned out perfect.

it is definitely trial and error

This is not a cake I would make for the first time at a host's house. I have tried it once at home, and undercooked it. I used the cake tester and it came out fine, but (after letting it sit) when I went to turn it out, it was not totally cooked at the bottom of the rice cooker. It tasted fine but looked like something you don't really want to eat. Plus, the nuts I used in the cooker stuck to the goo that stayed in the cooker.

I'm not crazy about hazelnut anything but I made this cake at home and my family (including me) LOVED it!! At home I made it in the fluted stoneware and at my shows I used the rice cooker plus. I liked the stoneware version better but either one comes out GREAT! (following directions...)

Had to give everyone a chuckle...
The first time I made this cake, I dutifully searched for fresh hazelnuts, found the last bag at the grocery store., was talking on the phone while cooking (my first mistake) and after "roasting" the nuts in the microwave and not being able to figure out why the skins weren't "rubbing" off...it clicked, you need to shell the nuts first!!! Yeah, good thing I was making it at home, and I still had hazelnuts left! My friend, who I was on the phone with, still laughs at me!

Had to share!
