Nutella has to be one of my favorite things. Nutella No Bake Bars are on constant rotation in the summer at my house. We put it on English Muffins for breakfast, and will make just about any excuse to eat it.

4 Ingredient Nutella Brownie Cups are so easy to make it is almost dangerous. So at least this Flourless Nutella Cake takes just a little bit more work, or I would want to make it ever day! I love flourless chocolate cake. I first had it on my honeymoon, and it quickly became one of my all time favorite things.

And when I say a bit more work, it is still really easy. The thing about a flourless chocolate cake, is that it doesn’t have very many ingredients. Eggs make it dense, and chocolate gives it the flavor. Then just a couple other things get added and you are done.
 
I first found this recipes years ago, when I first started blogging. I did something called Secret Recipe Club, where you were assigned someones blog, and you remade something from it. We all posted on the same day, and it was a surprise to see who had your blog, and what they made. I wonder if it still exists.

Flourless Nutella Cake has such a rich, chocolate Nutella flavor. It is dense like you want a flourless chocolate cake to be. Plus it has a thick chocolate ganache on top. Perfect if you want to make something for a party, to impress someone, or just because you want a decadent dessert. You can top with raspberries like I did. Or add chopped hazelnuts, to give people a clue as to what is in there.

  1. How much dark chocolate by weight makes a half a cup melted by volume? I’m in the grocery trying to figure out how many ounces to buy.

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe turned out perfectly and was a huge hit at thanksgiving dinner. It has WOW factor and tastes even better than it looks. Everyone has asked me to put it in the recipe roster to make again. For the dark chocolate I used one whole Lindt dark chocolate bar.

  3. A pint of raspberries sounds like quite a lot. Did you mean a punnet of raspberries? Or is an American pint a lot smaller than a British pint?

    It turns out, yes! A British pint is larger than a US pint.. but even on US sizes, that still seems like a TON of raspberries.

    But hey, who doesn’t love raspberries, right?

    1. The raspberries are served on top of the cake for decoration and to help balance the rich chocolate flavor. You do not need to use them all. But you can see in the picture what it looks like with the full US pint of raspberries looks like.
