Oh no, not another cake (I know that’s what you’re thinking) but I just couldn’t resist this Ferrero Rocher® White and Dark Chocolate Cake. It was far too tempting! Ferrero Rocher® happens to be one of my favourite chocolates of all time and when I am feeling a little blue I am known to indulge in one or two (okay maybe a few).

I’ve had one of those weeks (you know the kind) and I needed an extra special treat to lift the spirits. I spotted this Ferrero Rocher® White and Dark Chocolate Cake at the beginning of the week when I was visiting Elin (elinluvdelights).

I apologize Elin; I did not do the cake justice! (I am going to chalk it up to a bad week). You must take a peek at Elin’s cake; the dark chocolate ganache was magnificent, so smooth and glossy and her layers were perfect!

Isn’t it amazing? How can three people, using the same recipe, have completely different results? (I also spotted the cake at Almost Bourdain.)

I strayed just a bit from the recipe. I brushed just a tad of Frangelico® on the cake layers (not that it needed it because the cake was very moist) and I also added a tablespoon of the liqueur in the dark chocolate ganache to give the flavours a little hazelnut boost.

If you’re looking for a gourmet chocolate cake for yourself (right Elin?) or for someone special or you need a little pick me up, this Ferrero Rocher® White and Dark Chocolate Cake is truly a winner.

  8. Monica Says:

    Amazing cake! Can I use all-purpose flour instead of self-rising? Please say yes so I can make it tomorrow morning :)

  9. Grace Says:

    Hey Monica, this is the first time I’ve tried the recipe but I am assuming the cake will not rise as well. I just searched the net because I remember coming across a recipe for self rising flour, here it is 4 cups all purpose flour + 2 teaspoons salt + 2 teaspoons baking powder, mix together well and use in any recipe calling for self-rising flour. Let me know how it goes.

  11. Crustabakes Says:

  12. Grace Says:

    That’s so sweet, thank you! The taste was wonderful, it just didn’t quite look as beautiful as the others.

  13. Cookin' Canuck Says:

  14. Grace Says:

    Thank you

    Lovely. I want!

  16. Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels Says:

    Your cake is absolutely GORGEOUS! The ganache looks wonderful! Don’t be too hard on yourself, you’re incredibly talented. :) I used to love Ferrero Rocher before I was allergic to hazelnuts!

  17. Grace Says:

    Thanks Lindsey! I don’t know what I’d do if I was allergic to hazelnuts, they are one of my favourites.

  18. Grace Says:

    Great, I’ll put the coffee on, when are you coming over for a slice?

  19. Evan Thomas Says:

    Wow, I would be so impressed to see a cake like this! You really went all out.

  20. torviewtoronto Says:

    looks delicious

  21. Grace Says:

    Thank you so much Evan.

  22. Marly Says:

    How do you do it? This cake looks delicious. You’ve taken such a complicated recipe and made it look actually do-able! That is an art in and of itself. Hmmm, I wonder if I could make these cake vegan…

  23. Sandra Says:

    Very impressive.

  24. lauren Says:

    Do you have to use coffee. I don’t eat or drink coffee so i am wondering if it is a necessity to use it.

  25. Grace Says:

    Lauren the coffee isn’t necessary, you could just add water or if you have hot cocoa mix; add some to the water for extra flavour. I hope you enjoy the cake as much as we did!

  28. nana Says:

    Hi grace the cake is amazing but I have question the coffee used is liquid or powder

  29. Grace Says:

    Hi Nana, sorry I should have been clearer in the recipe, reading it now I can see the confusion, it’s brewed coffee, I used brewed espresso.
