These sous vide flourless chocolate cakes are made with just two ingredients: Nutella and eggs! Rich and chocolatey with a texture somewhere between custard and cake, this dessert is so easy to put together and such a crowd pleaser!

Flourless chocolate cake is one of my favorite things to make with sous vide because it’s so easy, and I can make adorable individual portions, so it’s perfect for a party (or having them ready in the fridge for dessert throughout the week!).

These cakes require just 2 ingredients: Nutella and eggs! They’re cooked at 180 degrees F for 1 hour, then popped in the fridge. I like them served cold, but room temperature works, too!

What is the texture of these “sous vide cakes” like?

These sous vide desserts are not exactly cakey: there’s no crumb. But they’re thicker than a pudding and not quite like a custard. They’re a texture all on their own!

Equipment Needed for Sous Vide Nutella Cakes

You don’t need a ton of equipment to make sous vide Nutella cakes!

  • An immersion circulator (my favorite is the Vesta Precision Imersa Elite)
  • 1/2 pint sized jars (I like Weck jars – they’re cute and the lid style means fewer things that can rust!)
  • You can absolutely just use a stockpot to contain your water bath, but I love my clear Everie container)

Other than a bowl and a whisk, that’s it!

How to Make Sous Vide Nutella Cakes

Sous vide nutella cake is insanely easy to make. INSANE. You are going to question how these can even work. I promise they do!

You only need to ingredients: Nutella and eggs! Whisk them together in a bowl until the mixture is completely smooth and the eggs are totally incorporated.

Pour the mixture into 3 jars and sous vide at 180 degrees F for 1 hour.

These are a great “make ahead” dessert, but if you want to eat them right away, put them in a large bowl with a little cold water and lots of ice to cool quickly.

These are best served either at room temperature or cold (I like them cold!).

Top with goodies and serve! Here are a few topping ideas:

  • Fresh raspberries
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Whipped cream
  • Sprinkles
  • Caramel sauce
  • Fresh mint sprigs

Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat water bath using immersion circulator to 180 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, whisk together Nutella and eggs until mixture is completely smooth and homogenous.
  • Pour the mixture evenly between 3 half pint sized jars. If using jars with a traditional ring and lid, screw tops of jars on with just the tips of your fingers: you want to leave the lids loose enough that air can escape while cooking.
  • Add to preheated water bath and cook for 1 hour.
  • Remove from water bath. If serving right away, place in an ice bath to bring the temperature down quickly. If not serving immediately, let sit on the counter for about a half hour, then place in the fridge.
  • Top with your favorite things like whipped cream, fresh raspberries, caramel sauce, or sprinkles!

Notes

I like to use silicone oven gloves to carefully place jars in water.
