I know you’re going to have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert , but do you have anyone in your family who isn’t a big pumpkin fan?
I have the solution. 2-Ingredient Flourless Nutella Cake. That’s right. Two ingredients, and you can offer an alternative dessert that just might nudge the pie off the buffet table.
The batter whips up in 15-ish minutes, and the cake bakes in under 30. There…I’ve taken away all your excuses.
Let’s turn on the oven and get this Nutella-licious baby in there.

Today’s recipe comes from Nicole, a St. Louis-based food blogger who writes Crazed Mom . She has earned her blog title, as a mom to five, and a new-ish grandma, too. I’m exhausted just thinking about her life!
I was assigned her blog as part of Secret Recipe Club . I was to investigate and cook from her site this month, and today is our “reveal day.” It also happens to be the last day of my participation in Secret Recipe Club, as it is disbanding after this month. It has been a fun ride for the past 5 years, and I’ve enjoyed having a chance to spelunk deeply into other food blogs to find new recipe treasures. You can see all my SRC recipes on this page , as well as the ones that others chose to make from my blog.
I’ve also made some great online friends through SRC. From my earliest involvement under the tutelage of April, to more recent years under the guidance of Sara and Susan, the Secret Recipe Club has been a wonderful experience, filled with fellowship and delicious recipe sharing. These are the best, most collegial people around. Each month I tease Sally about beating her to recipe selection, and now we have Karen and Sidsel joining in as well, to see who can find their designated recipe first and get it on the stove on into the oven. Luckily, my cooking friends aren’t going anywhere, and I will continue to stalk their blogs for good eats to share with you, dear readers.
Nicole has quite the treasure chest of recipes, from her decade-plus online writing career. I was tempted by her…
- Boston Cream Pie Waffles  — a luscious, silky pastry cream sandwiched between two vanilla Belgian Waffles covered with a rich, smooth chocolate ganache. OMG!
- Tuna-Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms  – I am so intrigued by these. I could see them for dinner with a green salad alongside.
- Gingerbread Crinkle Cookies  – Could these be any more perfect for holiday baking?
But as soon as I saw the 2-Ingredient Flourless Nutella Cake, I stood up and saluted. Take a look at her photo to the right, which is her version. See what I mean?
