German Nutella Almond Torte (EASY)

I totally needed something easy for my coworker's b-day. I knew I would be making a chocolate torte, but also wanted something a little different. I figured since he is from Germany (raised here, though) I would give him something reminiscent of his heritage. German tortes are desserts layered with nuts, fruit and cream. Ergo, I came up with this. It was so easy and tastes good too (unless you don't like nuts).

1 angel food cake

1 jar Nutella

1 C sliced almonds

1 C Whipped Topping

1 C fresh berries

Slice Angel food cake horizontally into three sections. Open Nutella, remove freshness seal, and microwave for about 20 seconds; stir with knife. Pour layer of nutella over first layer of cake; smooth with back of spoon. (work it gently to avoid picking up too many crumbs.) Add second layer of cake and repeat. Add top layer of cake, followed again by Nutella. Top with whipped topping. Cover with Almonds and garnish with fresh berries.


  1. I think I'm going to have to get a jar of Nutella and try it. I've heard lots of recipes using this and think I better try it. I think your torte is picture perfect... almost too pretty to eat.

  2. I could eat Nutella right from the jar!! LOOKS YUMMMY!
