{Nourish} Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

 Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cake @KatieCavutoRD{Sponsored} While I would love to tell you that Nutella is a nourishing food, I just can’t but, I can encourage you to savor each and every bite of this Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cake which is inspired by the Curate Indulgent Snack Bar. Hazelnuts and dark chocolate, need I say more. I am obsessed with this cake. With only a few ingredients and one bowl, this Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cake will be out of the pan and into your mouth in less than 45 minutes.  Oh, and by the way, it’s good. Like, really, really good. So good I may actually be enjoying baking!!??Naturally gluten-free, grain-free, and with no refined sugar, this cake is made with 100% hazelnut flour and you can actually feel good about eating it.  Nutty and rich, the hazelnut flour comes to life when a touch of real maple syrup and dark cocoa powder are mixed in. The dark chocolate chips–they take it to the next level of decadence and a pinch of cinnamon really adds to the savory, yet sweet depth of flavor this cake brings to the table. If you love Nutella you will love this cake. I can guarantee it.

Note: hazelnut flour can be less available than almond flour so feel free to make the swap if need be though it won’t have the same hazelnutty flavor we all love.  With that being said, Wegman’s usually has the hazelnut flour so I stock up when I am there. You can also purchase it on amazon Bob’s Red Mill Hazelnut Meal / Flour, 14-ounce (Pack of 4).

  1. Hi! Wondering if you’ve tried making this into muffins? I love batching muffins and freezing (convenience + portion control!). Thanks!
