Recipes | Nutella Bread

We had a snowy day this week, and with the wind howling and snow silently spiraling outside my window, I decided to give this recipe I found online a try. It's not as difficult as it looks, but it does require some time since there is kneading and layering of dough required. 

The taste was like one of those delicious Italian Brioche (my favorite!!!) they sell in little packets at the store... only better because it was homemade! Here is the recipe and my photos to go along with it... enjoy! 


2 cups milk
1 yeast packet (8 grams) 
1 tbsp. sugar (for yeast mixture)
4 cups flour
4 tbsp. sugar
pinch of salt
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp. melted butter


1. Mix lukewarm milk, yeast, 1 tbsp. of sugar in a bowl. Leave to rest for 15 minutes. 

2. In another bowl, sift flour, salt, and 4 tbsp. sugar together in a bowl. Then, add 2 egg yolks (put aside egg whites for later), butter, and activated yeast mixture. 

3. Stir the mixture, then knead for 5-7 minutes. Cover with towel, and leave in warm place for 45 minutes to rise. 

4. Once dough has risen, transfer to floured surface, knead again and divide into 4 pieces.  Roll each part out until thin and wide.

5. Use a cake/plate tin to leave a circular imprint on each layer of dough as a guide for spreading the Nutella. 

6. Spread the Nutella on 3 layers, leave 4th one plain. 

7. Place each layer on top of each other. Remove the extra dough.  

8. Place a glass cup in middle of dough. Then, take a knife and cut into the layered dough 4 slits on top, bottom, left and right. 

9. Take each section and twist twice into a braid. Continue all around. 

10. Brush with egg whites. 

11. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 360° Fahrenheit. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar for extra prettiness :)
