World Nutella Day 2010: Orange Nutella Breakfast Cake Recipe

Ahhh … it is here. The day we’ve waited for … longed for … dreamed about.

It is World Nutella Day 2010, so let me be one of the first people to say “Auguri,” and welcome you to the party.

Those of you who know me well, know I’m an avid party planner. I don’t wait until the last minute and I like to make sure all of my i’s are crossed and t’s are dotted.

Or something like that.

In fact, I started planning for Nutella Day back in December, when I created American-inspired dessert trays for my Italian friends and family. There were Rice Krispie trees. There were sugar cookie santas. And there were Nutella-filled powder cookies.

And they were good.

Unfortunately, you are just gonna have to take my word for it, because yesterday, when this highly organized, slightly anal-retentive planner went to write this post,  she (who also talks about herself in third person when she’s made a mistake) realized all of the pictures-every. single. one of them-was out of focus.

So I did what any hard-headed, Nutella-lovin’ girl would do … I cried to my husband.

And he came through.

For World Nutella Day 2010, I present you with my husband’s very own …

  1. I’d love to wake up to this cake. I may have to add it to our repertoire. The oranges and clementines are sooooo good this year!

    Oooh, aren’t they, Marla?

  2. Wow. The cake looks delicious. Is the original recipe without the nutella? I would like to try it without, but worry whether it would still taste as good.

    Here in Germany, we eat Nutella on bread and buns. I found a great and easy Nutella ice cream recipe and people here are always surprised about it.

    Nutella ice cream? Do share! And yes, the original recipe is just wihtout the nutella spread and is still very good.

  3. The cake does look delicious…! Well done to Peppe 🙂

    Lucky guests, I do eat Nutella but not very often…have a jar in the cupboard, ready for grandchildren to eat.

    I honestly don’t eat it *that* often, either. I did have a leftover “treat” from our B&B the other day, though.

  4. Super simple Nutella ice cream

    1 Portion:
    1 cup cream
    2 Tbs Nutella
    1 egg (fresh)

    Mix all ingredients well in a closed shaker or bowl. Freeze liquid. Ready!

    If I have the time, I whip the cream before mixing the ingredients. The ice cream becomes very smooth.
    And then it is even better if you churn the liquid in an ice cream machine. But sometimes I do not have the time and just use the shaker and the freezer and it is just as tasty! 🙂

    Cool. (Literally.) Thanks for the recipe.
