Amazing 2 Ingredient Nutella Cake Recipe

I have seen this recipe on about 100 Pinterest boards and foodie websites, and every time I stop in amazement…so it’s only fair to share it with you all.

Kudos to the original creator, it certainly was not me, but it seems impossible to figure out who came up with it first.

It really is just two ingredients: Nutella and eggs.

If you don’t know what Nutella is, then 1) I’m sorry for you and 2) go buy a jar immediately. Thank me later.

It’s a chocolate-hazelnut spread with a consistency similar to thin peanut butter but way more delicious and addicting. Don’t cheap out with an imitator either. I tried that once and was quite disappointed. Nutella or bust!

On to the cake, shall we?


  • 4 large eggs
  • 8.5 oz. of Nutella (weigh it out)

Preheat the oven to 350. Line a 6-inch pan (the fancy spring-form ones make it easier to get the cake out, but work with what you have) with parchment paper.

Put the Nutella in a big glass bowl. Make sure you get as much of the 8.5 oz. in the bowl as you can. Do your best not to lick the spoon.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until they triple in volume. (Don’t try to do this by hand unless you’re trying to win an Ironman competition. Use a mixer. High speed. 5-6 minutes.)

Mix the eggs into the Nutella 1/3 at a time. It needs to be very well incorporated, but you also want to maintain the fluffiness from the air whipped into the eggs. No eggy streaks or untouched Nutella. Continue adding in the eggs and mixing well until it’s all incorporated.

Pour the mixture into the lined pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Ridiculously decadent, and further proof that Nutella is magic.

May I suggest a tiny scoop of really good vanilla bean ice cream with your cake?
