WHILE the end result is sweet, baking can frequently be a stressful experience – and usually because there are a dozen ingredients involved.

But one clever mum has wowed the internet with a chocolate cake that contains just two food items.

Andrea Soranidis shared on her blog The Petite Cook her recipe for creating an indulgent dessert using just Nutella and eggs.

The ‘2-ingredient Nutella cake’ can be whipped up in just 30 minutes.

“Whether you are a chocolate spread lover or just an occasional fan, this 2-ingredient Nutella cake is an absolute must-try,” she wrote.

“This cake comes together in less than 30 mins, it’s totally fool-proof, and it also happens to be gluten-free (depending on the chocolate spread you use).”

The mum – who has also penned a cookbook about Italian cooking – added that she makes her own homemade ‘nutella’ that’s “gooey, rich, and comes together in a blink”.

For the chocolate cake, you’ll need five medium to large eggs and 250g of chocolate hazelnut spread, like Nutella.

The recipe has gone down well online.

Commenting on Instagram, one person wrote: “So impressive!”

How to make the 2-ingredient Nutella cake

According to Andrea’s recipe…

Start by placing the eggs in a mixer.

Whisk the eggs on medium-high speed until pale and airy, for about 5-6 minutes, at this point they should be tripled in volume.

In the meantime, pour your chocolate hazelnut spread in a large heatproof bowl, cover and microwave for 30 seconds, just to warm it up a bit.

Incorporate 1/3 whisked eggs into the bowl with the chocolate spread, and gently mix with a spatula until well combined.

Fold in another 1/3 of eggs, and gently mix until well combined.

Fold in the remaining 1/3 eggs, and again, gently mix until combined.

Then all you have to do is pour the cake mixture into an 8-inch cake pan and bake for about 20-25 mins at 175°C/340°F.

I like it slightly gooey in the center, so I usually bake my Nutella cake for 22 mins, then leave it to cool above the stove covered with a kitchen cloth.

If you like it a little more firm and cakey, just bake it for a further 5 mins.

Allow the cake to rest until is completely cool, then sprinkle with confectioner sugar (not absolutely necessary), and serve yourself a big slice of gooey, decadent, delicious Nutella cake.

Another shared: “Omg yes. Can’t believe that’s two ingredients!!”

And a fourth added: “That sounds amazing!!”
