I'd like to combine whipped ganache with Nutella for my cake filling. Has anyone done this? Will it give me a nice, light texture? I have a batch of Ganache I waiting for me at room temp. What's the best way to proceed?

the concept sounds delicious.

having never tried it, I would say experiment.

say take a cup of ganache and start mixing in the Nutella say a TBS at a time and see what happens.

If nothing else, "quality control" will be most fun, delicious, oh and fattening! icon_rolleyes.gif

Anything with nutella would be fabulous in my book ;0). Never tried this, but i don't see why it wouldn't work. I would probably start whipping up the ganache and then slowly add nutella, little by little till you get the flavor you are looking for. I would think you would have to add quite a bit to actually taste it in the ganache. I would even trying whipping the nutella first and see if you could encorporate enough air into it to get the same texture. Hmmm how about whipping up some whipping cream and addding the nutella to that? That would be great too..now you've got my mind thinking, and my mouth watering. lol Good luck and let us know what happens. ;0)

I just tried this last week and wasted a full jar of nutella. The chocolate ganache was made with semi- sweet chocolate and dark and it masked out the taste of the nutella.
Do a search for nutella ganache and a couple recipes will come up to make ganache with just the nutella. I found this out after I tried to make it with whipped ganache.

Hmmm. Well, I sure don't want to waste a jar of Nutella! Maybe I should just pick up a small bottle of Frangelico and incorporate some of that into the whipped ganache.

good to know. thumbs_up.gif I kinda figured it would get lost in the richness of the ganache.Why waste soooo much nutella, and still not taste it right. Man i love that stuff. I can eat it by the spoonful. icon_smile.gif
