Chocolate Fondant Cake With Nutella Cream Frosting

Chocolate, the word itself makes me drool, who will say 'No' to chocolates??? definitely not me that too during special occasions, this weekend was something special for me and i was very much happy to prepare this chocolate fondant cake to celebrate that special day..This fondant cake is one of our family favourite and i do this often for special occasions, eventhough i never ever posted this cake recipe in my space yet, so when i prepared this cake for the special day, i tried to present them with a nutella cream frosting which i tried for the first time at home, i did the frosting very much easily with nutella spread, butter, confectioner's sugar, but the difficult part is to decorate the cake, am not a professional nor took a special baking or cake decorating class till now, its was kinda a hard task for me to decorate a cake, somehow i managed to decorate this chocolate fondant cake, u can also notice that i didnt decorated them prefectly, eventhough everyone at home liked the way i have decorated the cake and enjoyed having them...

Chocolate cake

Chocolate Fondant Cake:
250grs Dark chocolate bar (broken as small pieces)
150grs Butter (room temperature)
4nos Eggs
1/2cup Sugar
1/2cup Self raising flour

Preheat the oven to 350F..Beat the butter and sugar until they turns soft and smooth, meanwhile separate the egg yolks, beat the yellow yolks along with the butter-sugar mixture until they turns pale..In a microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate pieces with few water and melt them for few minutes, add this melted chocolate to the already prepared butter,sugar and egg mixture...Give a stir, now add  the flour, its will be very thick to mix,dont worry, stir them well and keep them aside...Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they turns foamy, beat until the soft peeks form..now fold this beatened whites to the chocolate-flour mixture, little by little until they get well mixed..

Pour this cake batter in a greased round pan, bake for 20-25minutes or until a skewer inserted cames out clean..Keep aside and the cake get cooled completely..

Nutella Cream Frosting:
5tbsp Nutella spread
1cup Butter (softened)
1+1/2cups Confectioner's sugar
1tbsp Milk

Take all the ingredients in a bowl and beat until everything get well mixed...fill this cream in a ziplock bag, make a small hole, press this cream over the already prepared cake, using a spatula spread the frosting over the cake and with the remaining cream,decorate the cake as u desire, i springled few chocolate vermicelli over the cake..Keep them in fridge for two hours and serve them..

Enjoy!!

Lovely cake. I didn't know you could pipe so well. Good job. Thanks for the entry. Just curious. Why do you call it fondant cake? It is not covered in fondant or fondant icing. Can you let me know. I really want to know if fondant means something else.
