How to Make Meringue Cake With Nutella Buttercream

  • Beat the nutella spread, butter together until it turns soft.
  • Add the confectioner's sugar, milk and turn everything as a smooth nutella butter cream.
  • Arrange this butter cream in the fridge for at least two hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease round cake pans and keep aside.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder in a bowl and keep aside.
  • In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar until soft. Add the egg yolks one at a time, beat well after each addition. Add in the vanilla extract and beat for a whole.
  • Divide the flour mixture into three parts and add one by one, by beating well each time.
  • Now divide the batter evenly to the cake pans and set aside until the meringue layer gets ready.
  • In a clean bowl with an electric mixer beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until the soft peaks form.
  • Add in the sugar and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form.
  • Divide the meringue into two and top the cake batter with the meringue. Spread the meringue well over the cake.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes in middle rack until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Once the meringue cake gets completely cool, spread the already prepared butter cream over the cake and gently place the second cake over the butter cream.
  • This looks like a sandwich cake. Dust the cake with confectioner's sugar generously.
  • You can place this meringue cake in fridge for a few hours before serving.
