Flourless Nutella Cake


It’s that time of the month again…Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day!!  This is my second month being a part of this group, and it is lots of fun.  I have been introduced to new and wonderful blogs.  And this month…oh my was this month a yummy one!  Amanda does such a wonderful job organizing this group.  Want to join?  You can check out the Secret Recipe Club page for all the information. 

Secret Recipe Club

This month I was assigned Ilke’s Kitchen.  Ilke was born and raised in Turkey.  She moved to the states to attend college, and has been here since.   I was excited when I was checking out her blog.  I don’t have any experience with Turkish food, and thought this was going to be fun to try something new.  But then I spotted this cake, and I immediately got side tracked.  I think by now, you all know my obsession with Nutella.  There was this, this, this, and this, and oh yeah this.  How could I not make this cake?  I kept searching, looking at her delicious breads and other authentic dishes, but this cake kept calling to me.  So I finally just gave in. 

Boy am I glad I did, it was so good!  I will go back and try something else from her site, something actually from Turkey, but for now you can check out this lovely, chocolately, amazing cake! 

Flourless Nutella Cake

Cake
6 eggs (separated)
¼ tsp salt
1 stick of butter (softened)
400 g of Nutella
1 tablespoon rum, Frangelico or water (I used Water)
100 g ground hazelnuts (I only had almonds, so that is what I used)
100 g melted dark chocolate

Beat the egg whites and salt until it forms stiff peaks. Around 2 minutes or so.Beat Nutella and softened butter in a different bowl until it combines. Add the rest of the ingredients (including the egg yolks) except melted chocolate and the egg whites.

Once everything is well mixed, stir the melted chocolate in and fold the egg whites into the mixture gently.

Pour the batter into a 9-inch springform pan (lined with parchment paper and greased) and cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. When the cake is done, you will see that the cake will separate from the pan.

Unmold, cool the cake and get the icing ready.

Icing
75 ml heavy whipping
125 g dark chocolate
1 tablespoon rum, Frangelico or water (I used Water)

100g Hazelnuts, toasted and Chopped or 1 pint Raspberries

Mix the heavy cream, chocolate and your choice of liquid in a pan on the stovetop. Heat on moderate setting until the chocolate melts.

Turn off the stove as soon as the chocolate melts, and start whisking until the mixture thickens.   I added 4 Tbls powdered sugar at this point because it was too dark for me.  Still did not end up all that sweet. 

Spread/pour the thickened chocolate mixture over the cake.

Decorate with chopped toasted hazelnuts or raspberries

Hi Erin :) Thank you so much for making the cake! This one is always a winner with a crowd. I will use raspberries next time on top. Nuts on top can get hard to deal with when you are cutting the cake.

Ooo it looks delicious!

Nutella is the best. I sometimes sneak a spoon from the jar. And then another. And then one more. And then I've already had three so one more won't hurt... Hehe.

MMM! Nutella is a fav of mine. The raspberries kick the cake up another notch. :)

Yay! I love secret recipe club! This looks delicious. Hubby is addicted to Nutella and while he's not a sweet guy...all I have to do is tell him it has Nutella and he's there! I love any kind of sweet and this looks particularly delicious!

Erin, that is gorgeous. I love flourless chocolate cake. Hazelnut meal is available from Netrition.com I believe Bob's Red Mill makes it. Trader Joe's should have it if you are near one. :) I'm sure it worked just fine with almond flour.

That is a delicious looking cake!

 
At September 12, 2011 at 9:17 PM , Blogger The Mom Chef said...

I'll get the fact that the cake is gorgeous out of the way. You did it proud, that's for sure.

But...you had the chance to use Frangelico and you chose water? Really? Why??? And, you could have made authentic Turkish food and you didn't? We need to talk, my friend.

Of course, I come from the angle of not liking chocolate. Might have something to do with it. The Frangelico thing though. Really.

 
At September 12, 2011 at 9:38 PM , Blogger Erin said...

@Mom Chef - what is Frangelico? I didn't know what it was, so I opted for her water option. Guess I should have researched first!

 
At September 12, 2011 at 9:44 PM , Blogger Kristen said...

That sounds amazing. Flourless cakes are so dense and delicious, but adding Nutella sends this one into the stratosphere. Delicious!

The cake looks divine, I wish I could dig into a slice right now! :)

This should be against the law..the kind of law you continually break. Nutella 'anything' is heaven, but a flourless cake literally takes the cake. Gorgeous and just wow!

I just picked up some nutella and I've been trying to decide what to do with it. Now, you've just made my decision that much harder! This cake looks great!
