It’s officially been 8 weeks into newly minted mommyhood!
Now that I’m starting to get more mobile & settling in better with the newborn, I figured a celebration was in order. What better way to do so, than with chocolate? I know… chocolate AND Nutella. And throw in strawberry. And whipped cream for good measure. Oh my gosh, let me tell you, this cake — making it, assembling it, photographing it and most importantly — devouring it fired up the MoJyo engines faster than any metaphor my sleep deprived new mommy mind can conjure.
Oh Nutella, you make all the exhaustion just disappear! I feel I need to write an ode to your greatness as a separate blog post. Meanwhile, here’s actual footage of me eating this cake:
Here’s why this cake is terrific: it’s perfect for the choco & Nutella lover, and an awesome alternative to strawberry shortcake. It’s dense, rich & ooohh so satisfying. Also, this is a recipe from the amazing food blogger & now Food Network star, Ree Drummond, aka, The Pioneer Woman. Did I mention it’s ridiculously pretty?!? I mean look at them tiers….
Both a visual & taste bud treat, this is one Nutella-riffic cake that hits the spot. If you make this recipe, I’d love to see your pictures! Tag us on Instagram with #findmymojyo with your creations.
