German Nougat – Gianduja

Posted in : Cake on by : Detlef

German nougat is different from nougat you get anywhere else, I learned. German Nougat is Gianduja, a mass made from nuts, sugar and chocolate. A smooth delicious paste, melting in your mouth.


To make this nougat you need a blender, a professional one, otherwise the mass will not get smooth enough. There should be no pieces in it and it also should not be coarse in any kind.

What you can do with it?
Bake a cake, bake cookies, make an ice cream (Baccio), make some pralines or just eat it with a spoon.
You can use this paste also to make your own Hazelnut Cream spread.
