Flourless Nutella Cake

We had a birthday in the office and I volunteer/have been volunteered to be in charge of desserts for such occasions. I wanted to experiment with something new and figured it had been awhile since I’d made a cake. I glanced at several GF and non GF recipes and came up with this one. The base is similar to the almond butter brownies from Elana’s Pantry. I love those brownies but wanted it to be cakier. This was tasty, very very dense and definitely a brownie-esque cake. I topped it with a nutella cream cheese frosting, soon to be posted.

Flourless Nutella Cake
8 oz almond butter
8 oz nutella
3 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a springform pan. Blend almond butter and nutella until smooth. Blend in wet ingredients: eggs, vanilla, agave. Then mix in dry ingredients until just incorporated. Pour into prepared springform pan and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 325 and bake for another 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out pretty clean.

Let cool completely before you frost it…

I write. I eat. And I cook. I write about what I cook and eat. I love finding new foods, being inspired to make something I've never made, and most of all I love feeding other people things that they have never tried before. I like disproving myths about food and what it means to eat well, to eat healthy, often on a budget, and for some of us- to eat with a bunch of food allergies (and still eat well!).
