This recipe would make the perfect weeknight dessert when you need something fast and sweet. The cake is light, moist, and chocolaty finished with the creamiest, fluffiest, most delicious Nutella frosting.

This is a no-fail chocolate dessert that your entire family will love.

What I love about this recipe is, all you need is 30 minutes to make this gluten-free chocolate cake, including the Nutella frosting. If you try this recipe, please leave a comment to let me know how it turned out. I am pretty sure you will not be disappointed. Whenever I make a dessert, I try to keep it as healthy as possible. In this recipe, I used five eggs, adding a good amount of protein, I cut back on the sweetener, and there is no added powdered sugar in the frosting.  Oh, I almost forgot, kids especially love this chocolate cake, I think it’s mainly because of the Nutella frosting 🙂
