Bajadera is quite simple cake that you’ll love, if not for any other reason, then because it can be made really quickly (30 minutes) and that you don’t have to bake anything. The taste is divine…a lot of almonds, biscuits and chocolate. If you want you can add a little rum and it will have fantastic smell. In any case, bajadera is really an excellent cake!
150 g Petit beurre biscuits
200 g sugar
200 g butter
10 tablespoon water
5 table spoons of Nutella
Put the sugar and water on low heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Then take it from the heat and add butter chopped to pieces. Stir until the butter is completely dissolved. Then add a mixture of almonds and biscuits. Stir well to get a compact mass. Divide the mixture into two parts. In one part add Nutella and stir well. The second part of the mixture stays the same.
Cover a smaller deeper pan with a thin layer of butter, spread mixture with Nutella with your hands. Spread second part of the mixture over the mixture with nutella, also with your hands. Press well with your palms and flatten the cake.
Ingredients for chocolate glaze:
150 g dark chocolate
5 tablespoons of oil
50 g butter
2 tablespoons water
Melt the chocolate on steam and than add oil, butter and water. Mix until you get a nice shiny mixture. Pour chocolate glaze over the cake. Put it away for few hours to cool down.
Once the Bajadera cake is cooled down cut it in sticks and serve.
