Meringue Cake With Nutella Buttercream

Our this month Sweet Punch challenge goes for bakes with meringue, most of us know that meringue is prepared with egg whites, sugar with cream of tartar,my choice went for a simple meringue cake which is prepared with yellow butter cake baked directly with a meringue on the top, i prepared as per the recipe went for but instead of using whipping cream and strawberries as in the original recipe,i prepared a nutella buttercream to make a sandwich cake, they tastes terribly irresistible and my teddies loved it much, the butter cake was absolutely excellent,the technique of baking a cake batter and meringue in the same pan at the same time is quite unique, but the result was extremely delicious and while tasting this cake, u will definitely forget the efforts u put for making the beautiful meringue cake..Thanks to Sweet Punch team for choosing this delicious cake.We loved it..

Meringue cake

Cake Batter:
4nos Egg yolks
1cup Cake flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/2cup Butter
1/2cup Sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
1/4cup Milk

Meringue Layer:
4nos Egg whites
Pinch of Salt or 1/4tsp Cream of tartar
1/3cup Sugar
1/2tsp Vanilla extract

Nutella Buttercream:
2tbsp Nutella spread
1cup Confectioner's sugar
1/4cup Butter
1tsp Milk

Beat the nutella spread,butter together until they turns soft,add the confectioner's sugar,milk and turn everything as a smooth nutella buttercream, arrange this buttercream in fridge for atleast two hours..

Preheat the oven to 350F, grease round cake pans and keep aside and 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, beat for a whole, divide the flour mixture into three and add one by one by beating well each time..now divide the batter evenly to the cake pans, set aside until the meringue layer gets ready..

In a clean bowl with a electric mixer beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until the soft peeks form, add in the sugar and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form..divine the meringue into two and top the cake batter with the meringue,spread the meringue well over the cake..Bake for 20-25minutes in middle rack until toothpick inserted comes out clean..

Once the meringue cake gets completely cool, spread the already prepared buttercream over a cake and gently place the second cake over the buttercream,this looks like a sandwich cake,dust the cake with confectioner"s sugar generously and enjoy..U can place this meringue cake in fridge for few hours before enjoying..

  17. I'm back again, Priya, I've been carefully studying this recipe, and realized what an amazing frosting the Nutella Buttercream makes.
    At first I thought it's too much sugar, but with only 2Tbsp of Nutella, and the addition of the butter, then, the sugar...makes a lot of sense!
    Genius!...curious as to whether it's your own, or an adaptation of a frosting recipe?
    Bookmarked this, to make!

  22. This sounds so delicious. Years ago I used to make a cake called a dacquaise and your meringue cake, while updated, is very similar to it. Using the nutella as a frosting/filling is genius. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
