Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting and Cheescake Filling

Sometimes, I’m scared.

When cockroaches fly-pounce onto my shirt (avoid bright colours near cockroaches).

When my health is out of my control because  even a change in diet or taking medicine doesn’t work.

When a “complex numbers” question appears on my examination paper.

When I dislocate my right wrist but can’t feel any pain.

When I’m doing supposedly-fun-stuff-that-are-not-so-fun-because-my-reflexes-are-not-quick-enough-when-cockroaches-are-not-pouncing-onto-me-or-when-scary-cats-are-not-chasing-after-me.

When I have nothing to do (rarely happens because my dear Toshiba is still alive and kicking thank God!).

When I’m baking cakes via the beating-egg-whites-till-whatever-peaks method (in this case, positive, healthy fear).

When my asshole of a brother aims his heavy and dirty basketball at me.

When I get reminded that the future is uncertain. Though it’s better now, life is still stuck at suck-ish, depressed, pissed and “my soul is stuck in the wrong body” stage. 

And people say praying works. I say it doesn’t work for everything. 

PS: Somehow, I think its rather weird to pray for cockroaches to not jump onto me since I’m asking for it by wearing bright coloured tops stained with chocolate, cake batter or whatnot. Those cockroaches don’t exactly deserve death. Poor little 小强s.

But as always, distraction works! Especially distraction in the form of baking. 



My friend and I made this for another friend’s birthday. Its a chocolate cake with cheesecake filling and Nutella frosting. As usual, because of Singapore’s crazy hot weather, the frosting liquidated almost immediately and needed multiple trips to the freezer. 

That said, it turned out fine in the end! I love the cheesecake in the middle, which balanced out the fudgy chocolate cake perfectly.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m getting sick of chocolate!







  1. Loved the recipe. Simple and easy to follow. Final cake looks yummy 🙂 Some of your images are not displaying on this page(in Chrome browser), something you might want to check.

    I tried making this cake last night. I have no idea what that delicious looking white stuff on top of the cake in the above picture is, but its not in the frosting. Frosting is very good, but very thin and difficult to put on the cake. Also, the cheesecake portion of the recipie didn’t make sense to me. It calls for 40 grams of sugar, which in my calculations is 2.66 tablespoons. But in the instructions it has you add sugar twice, once for 1/2 cup and once for the “remainder,” so I really have no idea how much sugar is suppose to be in it. Also it then calls for sour cream, but there is no sour cream or amount listed in the ingredients. I ended up ditching the cheesecake and made my own cheesecake, but built it with the chocolate cake. NOT pretty, but hopefully will taste good with dinner tonight.

    Where can I find heavy whipping cream? Wouldn’t it melt fast in our hot climate?

      You can get whipping cream from phoon huat, and really all the baking supply stores, fairprice, cold storage, shop&save, Giant, etc. You’re right that it melted super damn easily. I put the cake back into the freezer during frosting for 10 minutes after every 10 minutes it was left outside. Tedious, but…

  4. I just have to say I just stumbled across your blog and I love, love, love it!! Great pictures, everything looks fabulous! Especially this yummy cake, awesome job. I’m excited to be following, lol. (:

  5. Oh my goodness, nutella frosting! I just had one of those “Why didn’t I think of that??” moments! Looooove these, they look delicious!
