1/2 cup All Purpose Flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 1 cup Nutella (just use the whole medium bottle) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup melted butter (cool slightly)
1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 170 degrees C (325 F). 2. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat till no more blobs of butter left in saucepan. Remove from heat and set a side 3. Line the bottom of a 20-cm (8-inch) square cake pan with parchment paper, letting the paper extend over two opposite sides. Butter the two other sides. 4. In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. Set aside. 5. In another bowl, beat the eggs, Nutella, brown sugar and vanilla extract with a spoon till smooth. (if you like, you can use an electric mixer but I find it a hassle) 6. Add the flour mixture, alternating with the melted butter till both flour and butter have been incorporated into Nutella mixture. 7. Scrape the batter into the cake pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached (not completely clean), 35 to 40 minutes 8. Cool in the pan for about 2 hours. Unmould and cut into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature.
