Nutella Roll Cake For Christmas Easy recipe

Nutella cake roll , a delicious dessert made with a thin sheet of sponge cake spread with chocolate Nutella cream then rolled up and covered with whipped cream and berries.

A great classic of Italian and international home cooking; made with a soft pasta biscuit, similar to a sponge cake, but thinner and more elastic, which is baked in the oven, then filled with gianduja hazelnut chocolate cream and finally rolled up.

Like any classic recipe, there are many delicious variations. Today’s preparation is easy, quick and sure to succeed: a very simple sponge cake recipe that cooks in a few minutes, does not break when rolled up and in the end really soft.

For the filling, you can choose both the classic Nutella chocolate cream or the gianduja hazelnut chocolate cream by Venchi, another very famous brand in Italy.
