RECIPE BACKSTORY
Not my favorite. I think the recipe has a lot going on that doesn't necessarily mesh. I want to finesse this next time i make it. UPDATE - I mashed up what was left of the cake and poured in a little bit of almond milk to make it moist, and turned them into cake pops and they are pretty tasty....Form the mashed up former cake into little balls, and freeze for an hour. Take out and let soften, then heat Nutella in microwave for about 30 seconds. Dip popsicle sticks into Nutella then poke into your ball and then coat the entire ball in the Nutella. Let set for a few mins and enjoy. Can keep in the fridge for several days. Much better than its original cake form.
