  • 1 box chocolate cake mix follow box directions, but add extra cake ingredients below as well
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chocolate instant pudding


  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk


  • 8 ounce container Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream
  • *Optional: ½ cup Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.
  • Prepare chocolate cake following the cake mix directions but add in 1 extra egg, additional 1/4 cup water, 1/2 cup instant chocolate pudding (dry mix) and 1/2 cup Nutella. Mix using a stand mixer or hand mixer for 5 minutes on medium speed.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, bake following box directions.
  • Immediately remove from oven and poke holes in the cake, I used the end of my spatula.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine sweetened condensed milk and remaining 1/2 cup Nutella, stir until well combined. Pour over cake and using a knife spread evenly over holes. This will take a few minutes to make sure it is spread evenly. Immediately place in the refrigerator and let it chill up to an hour.
  • If you are looking to add some additional Nutella flavor, once the cake has chilled, spread Nutella over the top of the cake, the cake may come up a bit and not look so pretty but that’s okay, you will be topping it with whipped cream.
  • Right before serving top with Cool Whip or whipped cream.
  • For homemade whipped cream, beat 2 cups heavy cream, 4 tablespoons sugar, and 2 teaspoons vanilla in a mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.
  • Serve immediately or store in fridge covered until ready to serve. Enjoy!
