ALL BOW DOWN TO THE CHOCOLATEY GOODNESS.
Looking for a mid-week cheat meal to get you through another tough day at work? Your prays have certainly been answered if you love a bit of chocolate spread (who doesn’t), with this delicious Nutella roll recipe.
If you’re not the biggest fan of Nutella, you can always substitute it for jam and enjoy with a lovely cup of tea!
Makes 7-8 slices
For the sponge cake:
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp vanilla essence
For the filling:
2-3 tbsp Nutella spread
- Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF) and cover a tray with baking paper or just a bit of Canola oil over the base.
- Combine the egg yolks, sugar, and honey then mix well until the batter is of a smooth consistency.
- In another bowl, whisk the egg whites at a room temperature then add 2 drops of lemon juice for extra flavour (optional). You should keep whisking the mixture until it is foamy and white in texture.
- Combine both of the mixtures together, then sift in the flour and lastly add the vanilla extract.
- Empty the mixture out onto the tray, and even it out. Bake for just 6 minutes and don’t let it burn!
- Remove from the oven, and transfer to a rack so it can quickly cool down. Sprinkle some sugar over it, then cover with cling-wrap and let it cool down completely.
- Once it’s cooled down, roll the cake and dust with some icing sugar (or more Nutella) before serving. Yum!

You may not have realized, but hazelnut spread is so easy to make at home. Not only is it healthier that the sugar-filled versions available in supermarkets, but it will also be cheaper in the long-run. This quick and easy recipe is a great for kids and adults, and is a killer cure for those sweet-cravings.
2 cups roasted hazelnuts
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup cashew milk
1/4 cup cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp sea salt
- Put hazelnuts into a food processor and blend for a few minutes.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and keep blending at medium speed, scraping down the sides if need be. It should take up to 10 minutes before it turns into a smooth, delicious butter.
TIP: The key to making the best spread is to blend it well – unless, of course, you enjoy a bit of texture.
