I've always loved adding spreads like almond butter and peanut butter to my cake recipes. They add so much flavor and texture to the cake, and help keep the batter super moist. There are many cake recipes online that call for a chocolate hazelnut spread (who doesn't like chocolate and hazelnut?) However, the majority of these spreads contain dairy. Well, worry no more. I discovered Nocciolata Dairy Free by Rigoni di Asiago. It's certified vegan and organic, and it has all the great taste of chocolate and hazelnut without any dairy — perfect for holiday baking!
