Nutella Buttercream Recipe

Nothing can go wrong to your cake if you use the right kind of frosting…. Nutella buttercream frosting is my all-time favorite and has me swooning all the time! It is simple to make, its rich, incredibly addictive and silky smooth. It is even better than I ever imagined!! And it goes well with any chocolate cake, or cupcakes and even better with chocolate coffee flavored cake! 

I recently baked a dark chocolate cake flavoured with coffee and layered it with nutella buttercream frosting, chocolate fudge and McVities digestive nibbles for the crunch… And this cake was baked for a special and gorgeous gal who is an amazing baker herself, who has baked many gorgeous cakes for me every year!! And I am glad the cake brought a huge smile and joy on her special day! This is probably the decadent cake that I have ever baked.

And I adapted the recipe for my Nutella frosting from

Here is the recipe


1 cup (226 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup (210 grams) Nutella

1/8 teaspoon salt

2-4 cups (240 grams)confectioners’, sifted

2-3 tablespoons heavy cream


·         In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or with an electric hand mixer, beat the butter on medium-high speed until smooth. 

·         Add the Nutella and salt and continue to beat until well combined for about 2 minutes.

·         Add 1 cup of confectioner’s sugar and beat on medium-low speed until most of the sugar is moistened. 

·         Gradually add the remaining sugar until the frosting is the desired texture, beating on medium-low speed until the sugar is moistened. You may need more or less sugar depending on how you plan to use the frosting.

·         Add the heavy cream and beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.


·         Make sure you use soft butter for this recipe. Set the butter out on the counter for at least 1 and 1/2 hours before using.

·         Frosting can be stored up to 4 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Let it stand at room temperature to soften before use.

If you are a chocoholic, I hope you get to try it out soon and let me know how it turns out!!! Wishing you all a happy weekend!!!!
