Our breakfast marmalade is being displaced by chocolate spread and peanut butter according to the Sunday Times.

And I reckon that if you can’t beat them join them. So I opened the browser and searched high and low for a ‘Nutella’ type recipe. I finally adjusted one to suit.

You need:

  • 200 gms shelled hazelnuts
  • 100 gms icing sugar
  • 40 gms cocoa powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • A tablespoon of vegetable oil (a nut oil is even better)
  • A food processor


Preheat the oven to 170°C and toast the hazelnuts for ten minutes. Then rub them with kitchen paper until all the skin comes off. Then place the nuts into a food processor and whizz it for five minutes.

Next add the salt, sugar and cocoa powder (sieved) and whizz everything again. Now add the oil, a teaspoon at a time, and whizz. Keep adding until the mix is spreadable.

Scrape it all into a sterile jar and you have your own ‘Notella’. Simple!
