I present this decadent Decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Torte, made easy

Yield: 16 servings

Nonstick cooking spray with flour
3/4 cup whole hazelnuts 1 small pkg (9 oz) Devil’s food cake mix (make sure you use a small mix or measure out 1-2/3 cups of the cake mix)
1 jar (13 oz) Nutella
1/2 cup sour cream1 egg
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a torte pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with flour.

Place an 8-in. circle of parchment paper over center of pan. Grate 1/2 cup of the hazelnuts into a large mixing bowl. Add cake mix, 1/3 cup of the Nutella, sour cream and egg; mix well. Pour batter into pan; spread evenly.

Bake 12-14 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean

2. Remove from oven and let stand 2 minutes. Invert cake onto cake pedestal and cool for 10 minutes

3.Meanwhile, for filling, combine remaining Nutella and 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping in a bowl and mix until smooth. Spread filling evenly into well of cake.

4. Pipe 1-1/2 cups of whipped cream over torte and grate remaining 1/4 cup of hazelnuts over cake.


Here’s the step-by-step:

Just combine a small box of devil’s food cake mix (or 1-2/3 cups from a regular-sized cake mix), Nutella (or other hazelnut spread), some grated hazelnuts, sour cream, and an egg in a mixing bowl.
Mix well. You’ll end up with a thick batter.
Grease and flour a torte pan (I just used a round cake pan) and line the bottom an 8 inch circle of parchment paper. Spread the batter evenly over the bottom.
Bake for 12-14 minutes in a 350 degree oven and then remove and let stand on a cooling rack for 2 minutes.
Invert the cake onto the cooling rack and let stand for 10 minutes before transferring to a cake plate or pedestal. Peel away the parchment too!
While the cake cools, mix together the incredibly simple, yet fabulous topping of Nutella and 1-1/2 cups of whipped topping.
Spread the topping over the cake.
Now for the hazelnut garnish….
The recipe suggested using a rotary grater to finely grate the hazelnuts. I just happen to have a rotary grater. I love this gadget for grating fresh Parmesan over pasta and salads, and NOW I have another reason to adore this clever little tool!
It worked beautifully!
Here, I took pause for a drool-worthy moment. Just look at the topping dripping over the side of the cake! Mmmmm.
I finished off the cake by piping the remainder of the whipped topping onto the top.
So pretty!Slice it up and serve.
