Nutella Cream Cheese Cake
This Nutella cream cheese cake is made with layers of chocolate cake and filled with Nutella cream cheese frosting. Covered with chocolate ganache frosting.Amazing!
I made this very tall (doesn´t really show on the photos) CHOCOLATE NUTELLA CREAM CHEESE Cake for a birthday party recently..
It´s made of chocolate sponge cake (a new recipe with my own spin on it) filled with Nutella (or a similar product..), Cream Cheese frosting and covered with rich Chocolate Ganache..
I apologize for the photos as I didn´t have time to do any photo styling therefore the background is very boring..lol.. as the cake needed to be delivered at a certain time.. Also I couldn´t cut it to show you guys the inside..
To make this cake, please see the Recipe below:
CHOCOLATE NUTELLA CREAM CHEESE CAKE
Chocolate Cake: (makes 3 x 20cm cakes)
Frosting (filling and crumb coat):
Pre-heat your oven at 180ºC and pre-line your molds. Mix all the ingredients except for the boiling water together, when well mixed and the boiling water slowly and in stages. When finished devide the batter (which by the way is very liquid but don´t fret it will all work out at the end) into the 3 x 20cm molds. Bake for 40-45minutes or until a tootpick comes out clean. Let it cool completely before filling or frosting. Cut the very tops off every cake to ensure the cake is even when assembling.
Cream butter and cream cheese together, then add the Nutella. When well combined add the sifted icing sugar on slow speed and lastly the vanilla essence. Whisk on high for a further 5 minutes. Cover and leave to set further in the fridge.
Warm the cream in the microwave just until it simmers, add your chopped chocolate, whisk until your mixture is creamy without any chocolate lumps. Cover with cling film and leave to cool at room temperature. When cooled to room temp transfer to the fridge to thicken further. Tip: Makes this the night before. Whisk on high in your stand mixture the next day to ensure your ganache is light and fluffy.
I piped this border by filling my piping bag with the chocolate ganache and fitting it with the Wilton 1M tip.
Humberto (hubby) basically licked out the Nutella Cream Cheese bowl, when I asked him if he liked it he said: “No because you didn´t leave me enough!”..lol. See you all soon 🙂
