Nutella Cake

A friend of my brother’s sent me this recipe.  It is so easy and so scrumptious.  I’ve made a couple of adjustments in the original recipe which were heartily approved by my tasting committee!!

My cousin needs calories, so I’ve been making a lot more desserts lately.  Of course, the rest of us could do without them, but we hate for him to eat alone.  This cake only lasted one day.
