Instructions

prepare cake layers-

  • Preheat oven to 355°F at step 5.
  • Prepare (2) 10” round springform pans. Cover bottoms of pans with parchment paper. Butter pans (or spray with baking spray) and lightly flour. Set pans aside.
  • Add eggs to mixing bowl and beat on high speed a few minutes until fluffy, slowly add the sugar to the eggs. Beat on the high speed for about an additional 10 minutes, or until tripled in size.
  • In a small bowl combine sifted cocoa, flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • Once the egg mixture has tripled in size, add flour mixture in three parts, mixing after each addition. Mix from the bottom up, don’t overbeat.
  • Gently divide the batter between the two pans. Bake 18-22 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean if inserted in the center). 
    Once baked, remove cakes from the pans. Set aside to cool completely. Once cooled, slice layers in half.

prepare cream-

  • Beat cream cheese until creamy. Add powdered sugar and 3/4 of Nutella spread, mix until incorporated. 
  • In a separate bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Add about half of the whipped cream to the Nutella mixture. Mix on low speed until creamy, add remaining whipped cream and mix until well combined.
  • Add the remaining 1/2 cup of Nutella a plastic bag and snip off the corner. 
  • Drizzles some of the Nutella over the first layer. Gently add cream over top of the Nutella.
    Repeat until you get to the last layer.
  • Add raspberries to the center of the cake or around edges of the cake. Refrigerate for at least and hour (or overnight) and enjoy.
  • Enjoy, friends.

Notes

Note*: I added an additional ½ cup of Nutella, just drizzled on the layers and didn’t spread it. Once spreading the cream, it will spread the Nutella as well. That is an optional step. If you love yourself so serious Nutella, you will definitely enjoy this extra Nutella, you can also use less or more than the 1/2 cup indicated!
