Put the chopped chocolate and Nutella in a bowl and microwave for two to three 20 second bursts, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl vigorously whisk the eggs, oil, milk, vanilla and sugar using a balloon whisk or hand mixer.
Add the melted chocolate/Nutella and stir together until combined.
