With just a touch of sweetness, this olive oil cake has a hint of orange zest and five-spice powder. If you don't eat it all the first day, cut it into cubes and layer with whipped cream and oranges, or toast and slather with honey.
Chocolate Cake

Nutella® Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Not your traditional pound cake, but dense and creamy just like the original. This uses cream cheese and yogurt instead of butter for a bit of tang then gets swirled with Nutella® for a rich cocoa and nutty addition. It also contains less sugar.

This is a wonderfully creamy frosting that goes well with pumpkin bread, carrot cake, chocolate cake, on cookies, or between cookies. If you want chocolate frosting, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa, according to how rich you want it.
