A creative cook has sent tastebuds into a spin with her ingenious recipe for a three-ingredient Nutella cake.

While the inclusion of the delicious hazelnut spread in desserts is not unusual, this recipe in particular has really got people talking due to the way its cooked. Instead of baking the delicious treat in the oven, the trusty slow cooker is used.

The recipe was share on social media this week on the Slow Cooker Recipe & Tips Facebook page, and it has since received a huge reaction from fellow cooks who are eager to give it a try themselves. Better yet, the cake requires just three ingredients; 1 cup of Nutella, 1 cup of self-raising flour and three eggs.

All you have to do is place the ingredients in the slow cooker and mix together. Then cover and set the timer for one hour on a high temperature. The cook also suggests placing a tea towel under the lid to stop condensation. If you haven’t wiped the jar clean, then you can also ice the cake with Nutella once it has cooked and cooled.

Fellow slow cooker fans have praised the cook for the recipe idea and expressed their excitement to try it themselves.

“I’m going to do this one this week,” Angus Thorne wrote on the Facebook post. “Guess what I’m cooking tomorrow?” Laura Gibson said. While Julie Fleming added: “Looks gorgeous.”

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a new dinner idea, you might want to try a creative take on the traditional chicken schnitzel. It’s a dish enjoyed by many across the world, with the common coating containing a mix of eggs, flour and bread crumbs.

But, when a mother named Barbara realised she didn’t have all the ingredients in her kitchen cupboard recently, she decided to take a risk with an item already in her pantry.

Instead of rushing to the shops to purchase the missing breadcrumbs and flour, she used Aldi’s White Mill pancake mix. It might sound a little strange, but according to Barbara it was a big hit with her family, and now many other parents who have been looking for easy dinner options.

Taking to social media recently to share her creative recipe, the mum said she was quite surprised by the taste which she described as the “perfect blend of savoury and sweet” and a little like the common American dish of fried chicken and waffles.

“I planned to make chicken schnitzel for dinner tonight,” she wrote on the Aldi Mum’s Facebook group. “I forgot to buy breadcrumbs and flour today. I did have pancake mix though! All ingredients from Aldi and cooked in an Aldi pan.

“I sliced the chicken breast thinly. I brined the chicken in milk and salt for about four hours. Dipped the chicken in egg and then the pancake mix and cooked it in a non-stick pan that I bought from Aldi. The kids ate most and used the leftovers for their lunches tomorrow. I guess it was great if they ate it!”
