PB & Nutella Sandwich Cakes

Author: Dorothy Kern


For the Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups white cake mix from a box
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 7 tablespoons oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • (This recipe makes 4 sandwiches. If you want more, make the whole box of cake mix using the ingredients called for on the box.)
  • For the Peanut Butter & Nutella Filling

1/2 stick butter, softened

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk , divided
  • (You will have extra filling unless you make extra “bread.”)


Make the Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Butter and flour a 9” square pan and line the bottom with parchment paper for easy removal.
  • Mix all cake ingredients in a bowl and beat with a hand mixer until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan and bake 20-23 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
  • To make your slices: Cut cake in four equal pieces. Cut off the edges. Carefully cut off the top and bottom. Slice in half lengthwise to create two slices of bread. You will have 8 slices.

Make the Filling

  • ?Mix butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl with a hand mixer. Divide into two equal portions. Transfer half to another bowl.
  • Add peanut butter to one half of frosting and mix with a hand mixer. Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to get desired spreading consistency.
  • Add Nutella to remaining half of frosting and beat with hand mixer. Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to get desired spreading consistency.
  • Spread peanut butter frosting on one slice of “bread.” Top with Nutella frosting and second slice of bread. Wrap in plastic and chill until firmed up. Repeat with remaining bread and frosting.
