Gluten free Nutella cake Snagged from LiveJournal

Okay, so you’re going to need:

6 Large Eggs, Separated

10 Tablespoons Butter, Salted

1  13oz Jar of Nutella

8oz Hazelnuts 5 for the cake 3 for the topping

1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2)Chop your hazelnuts or grind them, size is to your preference, but I preferred mine pretty bitty.

3)Whisk your Egg Whites for about 2 Minutes

4)In another bowl, mix the butter and Nutella with an electric mixer(would

be a giant pain w/o but still doable). After its well mixed, add the egg

yolks and ground hazelnut

5)Melt 3/4 of the bag of chocolate chips(about 100 Grams) and fold that into the mix. You can

make a topping with the left over chips later.

6)Slowly fold in your egg whites. About 1/3 of them at a time.

7)Pour into a greased and lined 12″ Spring Form Pan.

8)Bake for about 40 minutes

Now you’ll want to let it cool for about an hour before you remove it from the pan. Place
it on a wire rack to cool completely. Once completely cooled, frost with your favorite frosting recipe(personally I go for something fudgy each
time. Spread the rest of your ground hazelnuts over the top. Melt the rest of your dark chocolate chips and mix with a
tablespoon of butter. Put in a zip lock bag and cut a hole in one end so you can spritz it and voila! You’re all done! Enjoy the deliciousness!
