I've made this Nutella Bundt Cake a couple times, and it is always a HUGE HIT. Even before it gets into the oven, because I practically lick out the bowl for both the cake and the frosting. ;) It's very rich, but not so rich you can't eat a really big piece. Or two. OK, maybe I'm the only one who could eat two, but baby LOVES Nutella. It makes her happy.
Anyways, back to the cake... this was my contribution to Easter dinner yesterday, and the reason Mama always lets me make desserts for everything. It was, of course, a huge hit. I recommend making it for any and all upcoming occasions, because everyone loves it. And that's without even getting into JUST how easy this is. You literally just mix all the cake ingredients together for a few minutes, then pour into a well-greased bundt pan and bake it. The frosting is just as easy-- mix the 3 frosting ingredients together for a few minutes, then spread over the cake. Delicious, easy, and a crowd pleaser!
Remember, comments are loved! What's your favorite Nutella dessert?
Nutella Bundt Cake
- 1 box chocolate cake mix (Devils food)
- 1 small box chocolate pudding mix (3.9 ounces)
- ½ cup Sour Cream
- ½ cup Nutella
- ¾ cup Oil
- ¾ cup Water
- ½ cup Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- ¼ cup Nutella
- chopped hazelnuts for garnish, optional
- Preheat oven to 350°, heavily grease a large bundt pan.
- In a large bowl, mix all cake ingredients together for 3 minutes on high. Pour into pan.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack.
- While cake is cooling make frosting: In a medium bowl combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Nutella; beat on high until creamy.
- Scoop frosting into a large ziplock bag and cut a hole in the corner of the bag, or use a piping bag with a large round tip. (Or, do what I do, and just spread it over til it looks kinda pretty.)
- When cake is completely cooled, pipe the frosting over the cake in a back and forth method. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts over the top if desired.
1 hour 15 minutes
Approximately 20 servings
You can make double layer (for a VERY LARGE GROUP): make 2 cakes, then when both are cooled place one cake upside down on serving tray. Spread layer of frosting over the top, then place second cake on top. (Makes a sphere-like cake.) Drizzle frosting over top as directed.
