My Picks:


Friday Feb 5, 2010

Thought I would post this in celebration of Nutella’s Day … I love Nutella.  There is so much you can do with this amazing spread.

Here is one of my favorite cake frosting:

Nutella  Buttercream
3 large egg whites
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened, cut into tablespoons
1/2 jar of Nutella (about 1/2 – 2/3 cup)

 Put egg whites and sugar into the top of a double boiler over a pan of simmering water. Whisking constantly, cook until sugar has dissolved and mixture is warm (about 160 degrees). Pour heated egg whites into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat egg white mixture on high speed until it forms stiff (but not dry) peaks. Continue beating until fluffy and cooled, about 7 minutes total. Switch to the paddle attachment. With mixer on medium-low, add butter one tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Increase speed to medium-high; continue beating until frosting appears thick, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low; add Nutella a few tablespoons at a time and continue beating until incorporated.

This is delicious to frost and fill cakes or cupcakes!
