Nutella Braided Bread Recipe

Nutella bread was on my mind for quite a long time, ever since one of my viewer requested me for it. As days pass by i actually forgot about it. But ever since hubby got me two huge jars of nutella i was looking for new recipes to try using those. And the first thing that came to me is the nutella bread. 

I searched online for ideas and so many beautiful shapes of bread catched on my eye. I decided to try few of those. The first thing what is did is made a batch of my fool proof sweet bread dough and divided it accordingly so i can try three of the famous shaped bread. One of the shape is this one, i also made the most popular nutella designer bread and nutella flower bread. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins

Salt -1/4 tsp
Dry Yeast - 3/4 tsp
Warm Water - 1/4 cup
Warm Milk - 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup
Nutella as needed
Egg or Milk for egg wash


Take yeast, 1 tsp of sugar in a bowl. Add in 1/4 cup of warm water and set aside for 5 mins till it foams up.

Take flour, sugar, salt in a bowl and mix well using a fork.

Make a well in the center, pour the yeast mix in, milk, melted butter and mix using the fork till it clumps to the fork.

Now start kneading the dough for around 5 to 10 mins till it really smooth and supple. When you press the dough using your finger, it should bounce back.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and set aside for an hour or hour and half till the dough is doubled in size.

Now take it out and punch back the air. Knead it again.

Take a parchment sheet and spread some oil. 

Take the dough and roll it into a long rectangle shape.

Spread some nutella over it. Spread it evenly,

Now roll it like a log.

Once it is rolled, cut it lengthwise. Dont cut it completely so you can braid them

And start braiding them.

Now put the parchment paper along with bread in a tray.. Cover and set aside for 30 more mins.
