Nutella, Strawberry, Chocolate Cake

For apparent reasons, my kids requested the Nutella, strawberry, and chocolate cake dessert. With one layer of Nutella, one layer of strawberry jam, and spongey chocolate cake, this cake will make anyone with a sweet tooth drool the moment they see it.

Sponge cake

My children have a sweet tooth, especially my eldest daughter, who’s a huge fan of Nutella and chocolatey sweets in general. Strawberries and chocolate always go hand in hand, and the combination isn’t missing in cake form either.

Sponge cake with Nutella

The cake lasted only a day and a half in my household because I had to restrain them myself.

This recipe is perfect for hanging out with a small group of friends or a fun cooking day at home.
