Déjà vu – from French, literally “already seen”.
Yes, my dear readers my post today is the copy from my favorite recipe the Nutella Roulade.
But there is a little addition called the apricot jam and the best ingredients ever the chocolate.
So, the first step is to make the cake. The recipe is below!
Nutella Apricot Jam Roulade
6 eggs, separated
6 TBSP sugar
6 TBSP flour (AP)
1/8 tsp baking powder
Separate egg whites from yolks.
Whisk the egg whites in a bowl to form stiff peaks.
Gradually add the sugar. (S-L- O-W-L-Y!!!) This is important.
Then add egg yolks. Mix.
Now, say “good bye to your mixer”!
IMPORTANT! For the next step you will NOT use the mixer.
Gently fold in the flour and baking powder, so that you lose as little air as possible.
Pour the mixture evenly into the pan.
Bake from 10 to 15 min at 375 F.
How do you know if your cake is done?
Insert toothpick into your cake. If comes out clean – cake is baked.
Now, if you finish baking the cake prepare yourself for the next step! It is very, very important step.
Prepare two wet kitchen towel. (Kitchen towels must be wet with warm water).
So, you will have the following situation:
Bottom wet towel + Your CAKE + Top wet towel
After 30 min. check if you can roll up the cake. Please start with a short side of the cake.
If cake refuses to cooperate and still wants to stay straight, please wet the top kitchen towel again.
Cover the cake with wet towel and after 10 min try to roll up. It will work.
Unroll the cake, then spread the Nutella filling, leaving a 1 inch border all around the edges.
Using both hands or towel, roll the cake up.
Then wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate. (Also, you can keep it in the freezer)
If you are “sweet crazy” you can frame your cake too!
1 cup Nutella
1/2 cup whip cream
Whisk 1/2 cup of whip cream. Add Nutella and quickly mix. (1-2 min).
1 cup apricot jam (or you can use raspberry)
100 gr chocolate (melted)
Warm the apricot jam in a saucepan over gentle heat and spread over the rolled cake.
Pour the melted chocolate over the jam, a little at a time.
Let the cake set in a cool place.
After a few hours…
The Nutella Apricot Jam Roulade is ready for you. Slice a piece and share with your stomach…
Enjoy every slice and ….
Enjoy every bite!
