  • 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread

  • 3 ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cup sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • cup butter, cut up

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cup buttermilk

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 recipe Chocolate Streusel


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. In a small saucepan heat chocolate-hazelnut spread over low just until warm and is of drizzling consistency. Remove from heat.

  2. In a large bowl stir together the next five ingredients (through salt). Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of mixture.

  3. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Spread half of the batter in the prepared pan. Spread with half of the chocolate-hazelnut spread and sprinkle with half of the Chocolate Streusel. Drop remaining batter in mounds onto layers in pan. Drizzle with remaining chocolate-hazelnut spread and sprinkle with remaining streusel.

  4. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes. Serve warm.
