Heart Shaped Flourless Chocolate Cakes

Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I opted to use my heart shaped cookie cutter with these but otherwise, this recipe will make one 8-inch round cake. If making the heart shaped cakes, these will serve 4.

  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate; broken up into pieces
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • confectioners sugar aka powdered sugar
  • berries

Special Equipment Used:

  • Springform cake pan or a regular 8-inch round cake pan
  • SIL-ECO round baking liner or parchment paper
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray your cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and line the bottom with a round baking liner or parchment paper to ensure the cake will come out; especially if you are not using a springform cake pan.
  • Melt the butter first in the microwave for 20 seconds and then add the chocolate. Melt both together slowly in the microwave, mixing with a whisk every 20 seconds until completely melted and smooth. Next, in this order, stir in the sugar, Nutella, eggs (one at a time) and the vanilla. Lastly, sift your cocoa powder into batter and stir in gently with the salt. Pour the cake mixture into your prepared cake pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Once the cake has cooled completely; I would wait at least 30 minutes to one hour, use your heart shaped cookie cutter to make the heart shapes. Dust on some powdered sugar and serve with fresh berries.
