This Swiss roll consists of a tray of pumpkin chiffon, which is rolled up and spread with Nutella. You can’t really go wrong with Nutella.
Nutella is like peanut butter, except better. It is a chocolate-hazelnut spread great for bread, fruit, crackers, and or Anything!
It was first created in 1940 by the Ferrero company, now famous for their Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
The hazelnuts were used originally as a filler because during Nutella’s first production, cocoa was difficult to come by. Nutella was first manufactured in loaves, which then could be sliced and spread on bread to make sandwiches. The spread was first called “Supecrema gianduja,” but then it was named Nutella in 1964.
- Line a 30×40-cm baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Sift flour, ground almond and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, whip together the caramelized sugar syrup, milk, and safflower oil until the mixture is emulsified Add in pumpkin puree and flour mixture, and mix until just combined. Add in egg yolks and fold until smooth.
- Beat egg whites with salt and lemon juice over low speed until frothy and foamy. Gradually add in sugar, increase speed and beat until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into flour mixture to lighten it and then carefully fold in remaining whites.
- Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tray and spread the surface even. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove, cool briefly, and invert the cake onto a new parchment paper. Carefully peel off the baking paper and trim the edges of cake. Spread the surface with nutella and roll it up. Chill for about 1 hour and slice.
