Oreo Nutella Cake is full of chocolate chips, roasted hazelnuts, Oreo buttercream, and Nutella. It is moist, flavorful, and indulging, making it the perfect cake for any special occasion. 

We love Oreo desserts that are rich and flavorful, such as Instant Pot Oreo CheesecakeOreo Devil’s Food Cake Truffles, and Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo Cupcakes.

Oreo Nutella Cake

The base for this cake is an indulgent chocolate cake, rich and full of delicious cacao flavor. This show-stopping cake is moist, dense and very chocolaty.

I also added chocolate chips to the batter, to make the cake even more scrumptious. A little extra chocolate doesn’t hurt, right? I like how the chocolate chips add a slightly chewy texture to each bite. So perfect and sweet!

An Oreo buttercream thick layer is stuffed between two layers of chocolate cake, resembling a giant Oreo cookie in a cake form. The Oreo buttercream is nothing but amazing, I actually added 30 crushed Oreos to it, imagine how good it tastes.

To make the cake even more awesome, I covered it in Nutella buttercream. I have combined my love for Oreos and Nutella in one single cake. For the perfect finish, the cake has been topped with chopped roasted hazelnuts, for a little crunch, and also crushed Oreo cookies.

Tips to Make the Best Oreo Nutella Cake:

  • Using high-quality chocolate in this recipe is key, as the chocolate flavor is front and center.
  • Make sure the ingredients are at room temperature before you start baking. Also, the oven should be pre-heated.
  • Make sure the cake is fully cooled before frosting it.
  • If the frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time.
  • The firmness of the buttercream frosting depends on the amount of sugar to liquid ratio. If you want a firmer frosting, add more confectioner’s sugar. If you want a softer frosting, add more milk or cream. Just do it gradually.

What do you need to make Oreo Buttercream?

  • Unsalted butter
  • Oreo crumbs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Powdered sugar

How do you make Oreo Cream filling?

Use the following directions:
  1. Dissolve unflavored gelatin in cold water.
  2. Set in a heatproof cup in pan; Simmer until clear.
  3. Let cool.
  4. Cream together shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
  5. Add gelatin.
  6. Beat for 10 minutes.
  7. Put a spoonful onto one cookie top with another cookie then press cookies gently together.

Do Oreo’s have eggs?

There are no eggs in Oreo. However, Oreo has milk as a cross-contact and therefore they are not suitable for vegans. Oreo products do not contain nut or nut traces.

What is Buttercream Icing?

Buttercream also knows as butter icing is a type of icing or filling used inside cakes and cupcakes, as a coating, and as decoration. It is very easy to make, by creaming butter with powdered sugar, although other fats can be used, such as margarine or lard.

How to freeze cake layers?

You can make the cake layers in advance and freeze them, thaw them when you are ready to decorate the cake. To freeze the unfrosted cake layers, follow these steps:

  1. Bake the cake layer and cool each layer on a wire rack. Make sure the cake layers are fully cooled before freezing.
  2. Wrap each cake layer in plastic wrap, preferably freezer wrap. After that wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place in a freezer ziplock bag (if it fits).
  3. Write the date and cake type on the ziplock bag.
  4. Lay the cake layers flat in the freezer.
  5. Cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months.


Yes, you can, but note, that once you start thawing the cake, sometimes you will get condensation on the cake, that happens when you are trying to speed up the thawing process.

  1. Make sure the cake is refrigerated, so the cream won’t spread when you try to wrap the cake in plastic wrap.
  2. Wrap the cake (if it fits in your freezer) or individual cake slices in plastic wrap, preferably freezer wrap. After that wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place in a freezer ziplock bag (if it fits).
  3. Write the date and cake type on the ziplock bag.
  4. Place cake in the freezer. Cakes can be frozen for up to 3 months.


  1. Remove cake layers or cake them from the freezer the night before you want to use the cake layers or eat the cake.
  2. Refrigerate without unwrapping for 24 hours. This way the cake will thaw slowly and without any condensation forming on the surface.
  3. After 24 hours, take them out of the fridge and let the cake layers or cake come to room temperature while still wrapped.

I don't know if I have ever had an eggless cake before. If they are anything like this AMAZING cake then I am all in!!! There is nothing dry about this cake for sure.

Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom

This cake looks amazing!!!! Wow!



Hello i made this last week for my son's 2nd birthday my family loved it. Tomorrow its his birthday party, and i want to double the ingredients. i used a 9" round pan and two separate layers. But if I double the recipe will the layers hold same consistency due to thickness? Thank you. Your response is really appreciated.


Hi - I am very happy that everyone loved the cake, its definitely a hit with my friends and family as well. I am sorry, I just saw your comment, I was traveling, the recipe will work fine, just need to increase the baking time.



Hello! Could you please help me out - if I want to make this cake with eggs, how many should I use? Thanks!



Hello! My comment was deleted by some reason.. Could you please recommend how many eggs should I use instead of tofu? Thanks!


Hi Nancy, it went to the spam folder, I am sorry. You need to use 2 eggs. :)



Hi!!! Ur cake looks super delicious n sinful.... i would like to knw if its ok to replace tofu with yogurt? N do u think this filling is safe for a 2 tier cake? Awaitin ur reply... thanks!! Great going!!


No, tofu acts as the egg here, you can replace it with eggs, but not yogurt. Yes, it will work for a 2 tier cake :)



Hi, the cake really does look delicious. The amount of sugar for the Oreo buttercream seems a lot though (8 cups). Is this correct? Could you tell what that is in grams please?


Yes, it is a lot, but usually, buttercream needs lots of sugar, in grams that's about 1,500 grams



What kind of chocolate chips are the best to use? Making this in a few days for my hubby's bday.. YUM.


Any that you like more :) I personally prefer semi-sweet!


Anne D

What's powdered sugar? Sugar just ground or is it the same as icing sugar.
