Butter Cake with Nuttella Swirls

This is my first attempt making butter cake n adding Nutella on top to swirl. The cake tastes really good only the appearance could be better.

The butter cake recipe is taken from who adapted it from Food-4tots

250 gm unsalted butter at room temperature
200 gm of plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs I used room temperature
200 gm of caster sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Nutella spread - use about 1 - 1 1/2 tablespoon 

I used a 8 inch round pan
Grease the pan with a little butter
Sift the plain flour n baking powder together 
Add in salt n mix well.
Place the butter n sugar in a bowl n use an electronic beater to mix till well combined or pale yellow
Add in the eggs one at a time mix well. I scraped down after every addition.
Add in vanilla essence n mix well.
Fold in the flour with spatula.
Fold in the milk with spatula.
Pour into the greased pan and shake slightly to even out mixture.
Preheat oven to 180 deg celcius . Bake for 40 minutes.
Check doneness with your stick.
Remove from oven n turn out cake to wore rack n cool completely before cutting.

Use a tablespoon n create 2 circles in the batter.
Use a tooth pick n create designs with the circles.

Height of cake very even

The underside so nice
