Flourless Nutella Cake

If you’re a Nutella fan this is pretty tempting…the flavor is pure Nutella in cake form.  And it’s a 2-ingredient recipe!

The 2 ingredients are Nutella and eggs.  That’s it.  It’s almost like a Nutella souffle.  The process is pretty simple but it does help to have a stand mixer because you’ll be beating the eggs for about 10 minutes until they triple in volume.  Then you fold the egg and nutella together, and bake in a lined springform pan.

You’ll get a nice thin brownie-like crust on the outer edge, and a thick dense Nutella center.  Like most flourless cakes, this one benefits from a little garnish.  You can sprinkle it with cocoa powder or confectioner’s sugar, and then go to town with whatever fruit you like.

oven to 350F
8 eggs
2 cups Nutella

  • Spray a 9″ cheesecake pan with cooking spray and then line it completely with parchment paper.  The cooking spray will help the paper adhere to the pan.  Cover the bottom and the sides, because the cake it very sticky.
  • Put the eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Beat on medium for 2 minutes, then turn to high for 8 minutes, until the eggs have tripled in volume.  The bowl of the stand mixer will almost overflow!  (Don’t worry, they will lose much of their volume as they get folded into the Nutella)
  • Meanwhile, microwave the Nutella for just 20-25 seconds so it softens a bit.
  • In your largest mixing bowl, fold 1/3 of the eggs into the Nutella.  Use a rubber spatula and turn the bowl with one hand while you gently fold with the other.  This process will be messy and you will think the whole thing has gone terribly wrong, but keep at it.  When the eggs have been completely incorporated, fold in the next third, and again until all the eggs are mixed in.  Do this gently so you keep as much of the loft of the eggs as possible.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes, until the center is just set.  Don’t over bake, and watch it carefully towards the end.
  • Cool completely before attempting to open the pan and remove the cake.
  • Sprinkle generously with cocoa powder or confectioner’s sugar, and garnish with whatever you like.

Notes:  You can add some Frangelico or other liqueur, if you like, to the batter.  Fold it in at the end.

I feel like this cake is a little bit too much effort for what you get in the end.  If you’re a Nutella freak, then go for it, but otherwise I would recommend my Belgian Flourless Cake as an easier alternative.  You don’t need to line the pan, so you won’t get the wrinkly edge that you get with this cake, and it’s much easier to put together, even though there are a couple of extra ingredients.

Cherries: little treasures of spring health – Gordon Ramsay’s version

Cherries: little treasures of spring health

[ad_1]

Cherries, delicious protagonists of spring, are not only a pleasure for the palate but also a wealth of beneficial properties for our body. These small fruits, with many shades of color and flavor, contain a treasure of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances that make them a precious ally for our health.

Native to Europe and Asia, cherries are the fruits of the cherry tree, a majestic tree which, with its white or pink flowers in spring, embellishes parks and gardens. Their cultivation does not require particular care and the variety of species, from sweet to more acidic, offers a wide range of flavors and culinary uses.

The nutritional properties of cherries are a real concentrate of health. Rich in water, fibre, vitamins and minerals, they are low in calories but full of natural sugars, which makes them suitable for all diets. Among the most common varieties, the railway, the durone di Vignola and the mora di Vignola stand out, each with its own unique characteristics.

But what makes cherries really special? It is the presence of carotenoids, polyphenols and anthocyanins that give them a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. Substances such as cyanidin, catechins and quercetin work synergistically to protect our cells from free radicals and reduce inflammation, thus helping to prevent numerous pathologies.

The beneficial action of cherries extends to different areas of health. From muscle function to heart, liver to skin, these little gems of nature offer a wide range of benefits. Recent studies have shown their potential to improve post-workout muscle recovery and protect the heart by reducing cholesterol levels.

But how many of these fruits should we consume per day to fully benefit from their properties? One or two portions a day during the spring season are sufficient to ensure an optimal intake of precious nutrients. And if we prefer cherry juice, a glass a day is the ideal dose to enjoy their benefits.

However, it is important to consume fresh cherries within a few days of harvesting to ensure maximum freshness and best preserve their properties. For those who want to enjoy this fruit even out of season, freezing cherries is an excellent way to preserve them for months without compromising their flavor and nutritional properties.

But be careful, there are not only advantages in taking cherries. For some people, especially those with digestive sensitivities, they may cause discomfort such as colic or diarrhea. However, when consumed in moderation, cherries are a healthy treat worth enjoying.

In conclusion, cherries are not just a fruit to be enjoyed, but a precious ally for our health. With their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and nutritional properties, they are a real spring superfood that we should include in our diet to enjoy a healthier and more fulfilling life.
