Ferrero Rocher Cake Recipe

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 Ferrero Rocher candies.

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