NUTELLA SPREAD

In this recipes, I’ve opted for homemade Nutella, imparting a nuanced flavor profile that leans towards the richness of hazelnuts over excessive sweetness. However, if you’re short on time or just want an easy fix, store-bought Nutella works just fine and gives you a similar flavor kick.

Making your own Nutella lets you dial up the hazelnut flavor and tweak the sweetness to your liking. Nevertheless, should time constraints or availability deter you from preparing homemade Nutella, readily available options from the store offer a convenient alternative without compromising on taste.

If you’re curious about whipping up your own Nutella spread, check out the recipe here. It’s a fun way to add your own spin to your recipes and adjust the flavors to match your taste buds. Go ahead, play around with different hazelnut-to-chocolate ratios and sweetness levels until you find your perfect Nutella blend.

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

Filling :
  • Homemade Nutella –  Homemade Nutella is a chocolate-hazelnut spread made with roasted hazelnuts, cocoa powder, sugar, and sometimes milk. It’s less sweet and often has a more intense hazelnut flavor compared to store-bought versions. If homemade Nutella is unavailable, you can use store-bought Nutella or any other chocolate-hazelnut spread as a substitute.
Tart Pastry :
  • Butter –  Butter is a key ingredient in tart pastry, providing richness and flavor. You can substitute butter with margarine or shortening, but keep in mind that the flavor and texture may differ slightly.
  • Icing Sugar –  Icing sugar, also known as powdered sugar, adds sweetness and a smooth texture to the pastry dough. Granulated sugar can be used as a substitute, but the texture of the pastry may be slightly different.
  • Egg –  The egg acts as a binding agent and helps to provide structure to the pastry dough.
  • Cake Flour –  Cake flour has a lower protein content compared to all-purpose flour, resulting in a more tender and delicate pastry. If cake flour is unavailable, you can use a combination of all-purpose flour and cornstarch. For every 1 cup of cake flour, use 1 cup of all-purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons, and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch.
  • Pinch of Salt: Salt enhances the flavor of the pastry dough and balances the sweetness of the other ingredients. There’s no direct substitute for salt, but you can omit it if necessary.

These ingredients combine to create a delicious and buttery tart pastry filled with homemade Nutella, resulting in a delightful treat that’s perfect for any occasion.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Chill Your Ingredients: For the pastry dough, it’s essential to work with chilled butter and cold water. This helps keep the dough from becoming too soft and sticky, making it easier to handle and shape.
  • Pre-Bake Your Tart Crust: To ensure that your tart crust is crisp and fully baked, consider pre-baking it before adding the Nutella filling. This helps prevent a soggy bottom and ensures a flaky, golden crust.
  • Use Homemade Nutella for Enhanced Flavor: While store-bought Nutella works perfectly fine, consider making homemade Nutella for a more intense hazelnut flavor and less sweetness. Homemade Nutella allows you to control the ingredients and customize the flavor to your liking.
  • Get Creative with Toppings: While Nutella tarts are delicious on their own, consider adding toppings to enhance their flavor and appearance. Sliced strawberries, toasted hazelnuts, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar can add extra flair to your Nutella tart.
  • Allow Tart to Cool Completely: After baking, it’s important to let the Nutella tart cool completely before adding any toppings or slicing. Allowing the tart to cool ensures that the Nutella filling sets properly and prevents it from melting. Slicing or topping the tart while it’s still hot can cause it to break apart easily.
  • Store Properly: If you have leftovers, store the Nutella tart in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This helps preserve its freshness and prevents the crust from becoming soggy.
  • Serve with Accompaniments: Nutella tarts pair well with a variety of accompaniments, such as a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Get creative and serve your Nutella tart with your favorite toppings for an extra special treat.

Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be discouraged if your first batch doesn’t turn out exactly as you’d like. Enjoy the process of baking and refining the recipe to suit your preferences.

STORAGE & REHEATING

Here are some tips for storing and reheating Nutella tart:

  1. Storage:
    • After the Nutella tart has cooled completely, store any leftovers in an airtight container or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap.
    • Store the Nutella tart in the refrigerator to maintain its freshness and prevent the filling from spoiling. It can be stored for up to 3-4 days.
  2. Refrigeration:
    • Refrigerate the Nutella tart promptly after serving to prevent the filling from becoming too soft or melting.
    • If the Nutella tart is topped with fresh fruit, consider placing a layer of parchment paper between the tart and the fruit to prevent moisture from seeping into the crust.
  3. Reheating:
    • To reheat individual slices of Nutella tart, place them on a microwave-safe plate and heat them in the microwave on low power for 20-30 seconds or until warmed through.
    • Alternatively, you can reheat the entire Nutella tart in the oven. Preheat the oven to 160°C place the tart on a baking sheet, and heat it for 5 minutes or until warmed to your liking.
    • Be cautious not to overheat the Nutella tart, as the filling may become too soft or the crust may become too crispy.
  4. Serve Fresh:
    • For the best taste and texture, it’s recommended to serve Nutella tart fresh when possible. However, reheating can help restore some of its original qualities if necessary.
  5. Enjoy Cold:
    • Nutella tart can also be enjoyed cold straight from the refrigerator. The chilled Nutella filling offers a delightful contrast to the flaky tart crust.

By following these storage and reheating tips, you can enjoy your Nutella tart at its best, whether freshly made or reheated for later enjoyment.

Can I use a different type of flour for the tart crust?

Can I add additional toppings to the Nutella tart?

Can I serve Nutella tart warm or does it need to cool completely?

Nutella tart can be served warm or at room temperature, depending on your preference. However, allowing it to cool completely before slicing helps the filling set and ensures cleaner slices.

Can I adjust the portion size of the recipes?

If you want to reduce the portion size, you can use the same speed setting on your Thermomix®. Ensure that you adjust the serving size in the recipe card to your desired quantity. For double the portion. When doubling the portion, especially for dough, it’s recommended to separate the flour into halves during the mixing process. This ensures that the ingredients are properly mixed. The Thermomix® spatula can be helpful in assisting the mixing of the dough, especially when adjusting portion sizes. Use it to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl and ensure thorough incorporation.
If you can find the exact portion that you like, you can, also, adjust this in manual mode. Make sure that the cooking times and temperatures have been adjusted for different quantities of ingredients. Please do not pass the max line indicated inside of the mixing bowl. The capacity of the mixing bowl is 2.2 liters.
