This Ferrero Rocher Cake came out of my addiction to Ferrero Rocher candies. They’re heavenly and I cannot seem to get enough of them. Perhaps that was my biggest motivation to create an entire cake recipe, based on the Ferrero Rocher candy.

Ferrero Rocher Cake Recipe

The Ferrero Rocher cake is one of my favorite creations. Yes, it’s a cake, but it so closely resembles my favorite candy! It’s a perfect birthday treat or something to bake when you’re craving those chocolate flavored hazelnuts.

You will discover that this cake contains very untypical ingredients; only 2 tablespoons of flour, while most of the texture is composed of ground hazelnuts. But don’t worry, the texture is still fluffy and full of rich hazelnut flavor.

Make the Cake

First, start out by whisking the eggs and sugar together until they triple in volume. You’ll have a really fluffy mixture when it’s done. This will be used to make the cake.

Next, sift the flour, cocoa, and baking powder. Then mix that in with the ground hazelnuts.

Using the spatula, fold in dry ingredients by thirds, be very gentle with the dough so you don’t over mix it and lose the fluffiness. Butter all sides of the 9 inch baking dish, pour batter into the dish. Bake at 350F for about 40 minutes.

Make the Nutella Buttercream

Dissolve chocolate, either in water bath or microwave. Let chocolate cool to a room temperature. Combine chocolate together with butter and Nutella. Whisk cream together.

Assemble the Cake

After the cake is completely cooled, slice it into two or three layers. Break the wafers into small pieces. Spread cream over each layer evenly and then sprinkle the wafers over the cream.

Decorate With Ferrero Rocher Candies and Hazelnuts

Decorate the outside of the cake with leftover cream, hazelnuts, and of course some Ferrero Rocher candies.

Tips for Ferrero Rocher Cake

  • You can use the hazelnut flour or use a food processor to make your own.
  • Use roasted hazelnuts for the best flavor.
  • Use even amount of cream between each layer.
  • If you’re using a blender to grind the hazelnuts, don’t blend them for too long, otherwise it may turn into a cream.
