Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Cake

Oh my… I have only 3 words to describe this cake: chocolaty, succulent, divine. It is honestly one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever tasted and it takes no more than 5 ingredients and 15 minutes plus baking time (plus it’s gluten free in case you are allergic). The outcome it the most chocolate loaded, moist (wet!) piece of cake you can imagine. And I promise you: you won’t stop eating until it’s gone.


Sugary & Buttery - Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Ganache Cake (gluten free)


I’ve got this flourless chocolate hazelnut cake recipe for a while actually and made it quite a few times, I just never thought of posting it. I don’t know why because this recipe is something that I just can’t keep to myself. So it was about time it found its way on my blog! The only change I made to the original recipe here is I added some hazelnuts. If you are allergic to hazelnuts, you might add 2 tablespoons of flour instead unless you are gluten allergic as well. In that case, 2 tablespoons of oat flour will do perfectly!

    Hi, I would like to try and bake your cake cause it seems soooo simple! But a question here, your 1 stick butter is equivalent with how many gram? I am in Malaysia so afraid that our measurement of 1 stick butter may differ. I thank you in advance! 🙂

    • Melina Thompson

      Hi Hamizah, you can use 120g of butter, that is about one stick 😉
