Chocolate Skillet Cake

This cake is really good. Like really good. It’s also really simple. Just the best chocolate cake ever baked in a cast iron skillet (!!) smothered with melted Nutella on top and covered with a sprinkling a chopped hazelnuts. I made this simple cake to test out my new cast iron skillet. To see if it would, you know, really work. It did. I am officially positive that all cake’s taste better when they’ve been baked in a skillet. Also, I made this cake last night and it’s up this morning. That’s how badly everybody wanted to dig their forks into this cake. πŸ˜€
