Earlier this month, Australian chef Rob Nixon posted his mouthwatering Nutella cake recipe on his TikTok channel Nicko's Kitchen.
And the best part is, you only need four large eggs (or eight small ones) and 240g of Nutella – so there's no need to dip into your dwindling flour supply.
Using an electric mixer, Rob whisked the eggs on a high setting for exactly eight minutes.
He explained: "The mixture will triple in volume and become fluffy."
If you're doing this by hand, only stop whisking the eggs when they form soft peaks.
Next, he added almost an entire jar of Nutella into a jug to allow it to reach room temperature.
Once the eggs had been whisked within an inch of their lives, he started slowing adding dollops of the soft Nutella into the mix.
This is what makes the egg mixture collapse and become a cake batter – all without the need for flour.
How to make the Nutella cake:
Ingredients: four large eggs (or eight small ones) and 240g of Nutella
- Whisk the eggs in a bowl until they form soft peaks
- Slowly add dollops of room temperature Nutella
- Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and cook at 180 degrees for 40 minutes
- Top with strawberries and icing sugar (optional)
After this, Rob poured the deliciously, smooth chocolate mixture into a cake tin before baking in the oven at 180 degrees for up to 40 minutes.
What you're left with is a mouth-wateringly gooey chocolate cake which Rob tops with strawberries and a generous sprinkling of icing sugar.
After tucking into his impressive bake, Rob added: "Cheap and easy to make and tastes delicious!"
Since sharing the tutorial with his 45,000 followers, Rob's video has racked up over 2,000 "likes" and dozens of comments.
One replied: "It's a legit Nutella omelette!"
Another added: "It looks so good!"
