Sbriciolata Alla Nutella (Nutella Crumb Cake)

sbriciolata-alla-nut

To all the Nutella lovers, here is so far the best Nutella cake I’ve ever baked. Sbriciolata (literally crumbled) is a type of cake that holds a smooth filling (in this case Nutella) between two layers of crunchy shortcrust crumbs. The preparation of the dough is the same as for the Sbrisolona cake, the typical Lombard tart originated in the city of Mantua, crumbly in texture and rich in flavor.

Try the Sbriciolata also filled with :

  • ricotta and chocolate chips
  • pastry cream
  • apple
  • pumpkin
  • lemon curd

Buon Appetito!
