Nutella Gooey Butter Cake

Did you know that National Nutella Day is February 5th?! Well, I did, and in honor this most sacred of days I wanted to share with you an a-mazing nutella recipe. I guess you are supposed to let this cake cool and then cut it and it would hold together better but lets be honest, it was hard enough waiting for it to come out of the oven (even after I had licked the bowl clean!) so I just served it up nice and warm and gooey! I found this recipe over at Tasty Kitchen.

Nutella Gooey Butter Cake
(Serves 1,  I mean 16)

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 egg
8 T butter, melted

filling:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup nutella
3 eggs
1 t vanilla
8 T butter, melted
16 oz (about 4 cups) powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 8 T melted butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Press the mixture into a lightly greased 9x13 pan.

To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and nutella until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and butter and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread the nutella mixture over the cake batter and bake for 40-50 minutes. DO NOT over bake, the center should still be gooey. Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
