How to prepare Nutella Roll
To prepare the Nutella roll break the eggs into a bowl. Add the vanilla extract 1 and start beating them with an electric mixer 2. When they become frothy, add the granulated sugar gradually 3, it is important to make them frothy.
Continue to beat until the eggs are light and well whipped 4. Turn off the mixer and sift the flour directly into the eggs 5. At this point mix very gently with a spatula, making rotational movements from bottom to top 6, until the flour is completely absorbed and you have obtained a fluffy and frothy mixture, without lumps 7. Butter and line a 30×40 cm baking tray with parchment paper, making sure that the paper protrudes from the edges, in this way it will be easier to lift the roll once cooked. Pour the mixture into the baking tray 8 and with a spatula gently level it so that it covers the entire surface 9.
Bake in a preheated static oven at 220 ° C for about 8-9 minutes. Before removing the tray from the oven, make sure that the biscuit dough is actually cooked. Once cooked, immediately remove the biscuit dough from the baking tray and place it on another sheet of parchment paper 11. Let it cool before removing the parchment paper very delicately 12. Then cover again with parchment paper and let it cool completely.
At this point pour the Nutella on the biscuit dough and spread it over the entire surface, leaving a free border on all sides of 2 cm 13. Roll up the roll from the shorter side 14. Wrap it again with parchment paper making sure that the closure of the roll is downwards 15, seal the sides well and leave to rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
At this point, unwrap it and dust it first with cocoa 16 and then with icing sugar 17. The Nutella roll is ready, all that’s left is to serve it 18!
