Rich, decadent and extremely easy to make Nutella tart – Made from scratch with little if no effort at all and ready in just 30 mins.

Who doesn’t love Nutella? I’m pretty sure there are plenty nutella-fans out there – and the famous pastry chef Pierre Hermé is one of those. Did you know he created this nutella tart recipe especially for his wife? You couldn’t expect any less from one of the best pastry chefs of the world.

I’ve decided to give a nice healthy twist to the original recipe and replace the store-bought version with my homemade Nutella.  It takes 10 mins to make and it’s well worth the wait. Believe me when I say this is really GOOD STUFF.

    How much sugar do you fold in?

      Oops, my bad! I forgot to add sugar amount, but it’s correct now. You need to add 2 tbsp of sugar after adding the egg yolks. Hope you try this tart, it’s my safe bet everytime I go to a party and bring it over, everyone loves it!

    • Thank you Nadia 🙂 It’s by far my favorite “chocolate” tart, I love the different textures you get. I used to make it with store-bough nutella, then I started making my own and the result is so much better ( and healthier!). Hope you try it out soon, if you do let me know how it is! 🙂
