Nutella Christmas Tree cake

A quick and easy recipe for a gorgeously rich Christmas cake. All you need is Nutella, puff-pastry and 5 spare minutes! Make your Christmas a bit more special with this festive treat.


Every Christmas I promise myself I will buy all the presents in November, so I can relax during December and spend the holidays cooking and not rushing around. Of course this is never the case, so the time left for cooking is very little.
That’s when I decided to bake this cake: it is easy, very tasty and most importantly it is SUPER QUICK! Doesn’t it sound like the perfect cake to bake for Christmas?

I’ve recorded a short video tutorial for it. CaptureLoving Christmas desserts? You should check this mouthwatering guide to traditional Italian Christmas Cakes!
