If there is a thing that baking has thought us is that there is lot of room for creativity.
Even staying in the comfort zone of a simple cake, experimenting is key and fun in the same time.
Before developing the recipe we are most pleased with, we play a lot with ingredients. Reaching our expectations in a cake is not easy. You are always tempted to add more sugar, more nutella, more butter, but all these ingredients have to find a balance and one cannot overpower the other.
This cake is lovely to do with children, they love seeing the different colours in the mixture and when the cake is out of the oven their face of surprise is priceless.
