Nutella Torta – Nutella Roll
This is my daughter’s recipe for Nutella Torta – Nutella Roll. This dessert is perfect to impress your “Nutty for Nutella” and chocolate loving friends. It requires only 6 ingredients and takes only 30 minutes to prepare and cook!
5 room temp eggs (separated)
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup of Nutella or any Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (Pam spray or margarine) and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
Combine flour, salt, baking powder in a bowl.
In a large bowl beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup of sugar until lemony. Add flour and beat for about 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar gently into the whites until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the egg whites into the eggs with a rubber spatula.
Pour into the sheet pan spreading evenly. Cook for about 15 minutes or less depending on your oven. The cake should be golden light brown in color.
Place a clean linen white kitchen towel on the counter and sprinkle generously with granulated sugar.
Slowly flip the cake pan onto the towel with the sugar.
Peel the parchment paper off the cake, then roll up the cake with the dish towel and let it sit for 5 minutes for the cake to cool.
Unwrap the rolled up cake let sit for a few minutes and gently spread the Nutella with a light coating evenly over the cake. *The warm cake will melt the nutella making is easy to spread smoothly.
Gently roll up the cake without the towel leaving the edge on the bottom.
Sprinkle more granulated or confectioners sugar on top of the Torta if desired. Let it cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
