Nutella Cake

Do you like Nutella? I LOVE it! Seriously, I could eat it every day till the rest of my life. I always buy a big jar of Nutella and I don't want to admit how many days it lasts. 
Nothing is better than a slice of whole grain bread with Nutella on top. If you like Nutella and love cakes, you should deffinitely try this Nutella cake. The recipe is an old classic, which a friend of mine found on the internet. Whenever a family member celebrates his birthday, they demand this cake. It is so so amazing and really easy to do.

You need:
For the batter:
6 eggs
120 grams sugar
180 grams flour
1 tea spoon baking powder
1 tea spoon vanilla
5 generous table spoons Nutella
1/2 cup of water
5 table spoons sugar

For the filling:
2 cups heavy cream
4 generous table spoons Nutella

Prepare two medium sized mixing bowls and crack the eggs, putting the yolks in one bowl and whites in the other. Put half of the sugar to the egg yolks and mix until creamy. Put the other half of the sugar to the egg whites and mix until you get a stiff meringue. Set aside. 
Now mix the Nutella into the yolk sugar mixture and gradually add the meringue. Mix carefully, you don't want to overmix the batter. Now combine the flour and baking powder, sift and fold in the batter mixture. Pour the batter into a greased cake pan and bake on 180°C for 25 minutes. When baked, remove from the oven and set aside to cool completely. 
Once cool, remove from the tin and cut twice through the sponge, so you get three equal sponges. Put the first sponge on a cake plate and moisten it with the mixture of water and sugar. For the filling, beat the heavy cream and add the Nutella. Be careful to not overmix it. The filling should be light and fluffy, not liquid or too hard. Smear a third of the filling on the sponge and put the next sponge on top. Do the same on this layer, finishing with the filling, which you smear all over the cake. Cool in the fridge for two hours, or overnight.
