Nutella Swiss Roll
One of the thing I like the most is to try out easy and simple recipes, the ones I used to eat when I was a child, the ones people always forget today. One of this easy peasy recipe is the Nutella Swiss Roll, one of the pleasure of when I was a student and I didn’t really want anything else than chocolate.
It’s one of those recipes you can easily make in 30 minutes of your time, while you’re watching the television or ironing; the smell will invade your home and your family (or friends!) will be so delighted they will ask for more of this.
What you need for a medium/large roll
100 grams of flour
100 grams of sugar
2 egg yolks
1 pinch of salt
200 grams of Nutella
One little drop of vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 180° and let it warm up. Meanwhile, mix the eggs and egg yolks with sugar and a pinch of salt slamming until frothy.
2. Add flour and continue to beat. When you no longer feel the lumps pour a little drop of vanilla extract.
3. Line a baking tray with high edges (or a classic pan approx. 28 cm) with parchment paper and pour the mixture in the center. Shake it to make sure the mixture will expand outward and will not remain too high.
4. Bake for 15 minutes then remove the sponge layer from paper and transfer over a wet cotton cloth. Roll it along with the wet cloth and leave to cool in this way for about 10 minutes.
5. Once cool, remove the sponge from the rag and place it back on the parchment paper then spread throughout the Nutella (slightly softened so you won’t break the base) and roll back on itself. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and let the roll stand for a few minutes before serving. You can enrich your roll with banana slices.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Do not over bake the sponge layer or it will crack upon rolling.
