Nutella cake recipes: Swiss roll filled with nutella and Cointreau syrup.
I had her book since my birthday, and finally tried it, in an Italian Christmas version: a nutella cake roll.
You can find the basic deco cake roll recipe here and then free your imagination.
Or you can just open a Nutella jar!
- I made the roll following the basic recipe, you can find here (I used 00 flour).
- Made the syrup with Cointreau.
- And filled it up with Nutella.
It was d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.
And kind of easy. If you don’t consider the “design part”. I had to make it twice, to get these decent Christmas trees.
It’s too fun not to give it a try. Besides, there’s something incredibly powerful in trying a new thing, whatever it is… something that nurtures your inner self, something that, simply, makes you happy!
My former colleagues at Nat Geo did have a point: IGNORANCE IS BORING.
So I went beyond the boring classic nutella cake (I know it’s hard to define Nutella boring), and boozed it up, rolled it and decorated it with Christmas trees.
