Nutella Bread

I cannot believe this was my very first time making nutella bread! It is equally as good as my favourite chocolate croissant at Croissant Express Bakery…and I didn’t even drizzle icing sugar on top! I ended up making the bread with my own homemade hazelnut butter, but feel free to use what ever kind of Nutella you like. nutella bread

Nutella Bread
Dessert Bread equally as good as my favourite chocolate croissant!
  • ½ teaspoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • 1 egg beaten with a tablespoon of water to use as egg wash
  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in ¼ cup of the water. Let sit for 10 minutes to activate.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. After add yeast and the remaining water, knead dough for about 7 minutes.
  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap, and then set in a warm place. The dough is ready when doubled in size - about an hour.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to form a rectangle, roughly 12 x 15”. Spread Nutella in an even layer on the surface, leaving a ½ inch border of dough. (I found it helpful to heat the Nutella over a double broiler to make it spread easier.) Roll tightly and place on a parchment-lined / silicon-lined baking sheet. Cut the dough down the middle with a knife, leaving one end intact. Twist ends overtop each other, making sure to turn cut side toward the top. Cover dough loosely with plastic wrap and let sit 20 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush surface of the bread with the egg wash. Bake bread for 20 minutes. Raise temperature to 425°F and bake until lightly browned on top, about 5-7 minutes more.* Remove from oven, and let cool before serving.
