This is one of the best recipes for chocolate cake I've ever tried in my life. I prepared it for my birthday which was on 17th of November. Beautiful, creamy and juicy with rich chocolate flavor. Amazing! Let's make clear that you can use any chocolate cream you want, so if you choose other than Nutella, choose a good one. Here I used Nutella because it has rich hazelnut taste. It's a simple recipe  and doesn't require many ingredients and much time. Basically, the cooling time is longer than preparation time.

For the biscuit:
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 tablespoons of sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons Nutella
Syrup for the biscuit:
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • juice of half orange
  • 1 tbs cocoa
  • 100 ml of milk
  • 250 ml sweet cooking cream
  • 200 g of dark chocolate
  • orange peel
  • 2 tbs Nutella

  1. First beat the eggs and sugar with a mixer until foamy, then add the remaining ingredients for the biscuit. Pour the mixture in the pan from the oven coated with baking paper and bake at 180 C degrees for about 15 minutes. Leave to cool after baking.
  2. Prepare the filling: put the cooking cream to heat in a pot, add the chocolate and nutella and let it melt and blend everything until smooth. Add some grated orange peel and leave to cool down. I put it in the freezer to harden quicker.
  3. Prepare the syrup by boiling the milk, sugar and cocoa for 5 minutes and add the juice after removed from fire.
  4. Then, take the biscuit and cut it in 3 equal stripes.
  5. Align the first stripe on the cake plate, and pour 1/3rd from the syrup over the biscuit.
  6. Apply little less than 1/3rd from the filling. Then add the 2nd stripe and repeat the procedure. Add the 3rd stripe and repeat again and spread the filling all over the cake.
  7. Decorate as desired, I think it's the best to decorate with hazelnuts.
  8. Put it in the fridge and serve after several hours.
