Nutella Twist Bread

April 3, 2018

20180318 Nutella Bread 04This is a sweet treat that looks it takes a lot of skill. However, it comes together very quickly, and the secret to its pretty braided look is having layers that you twist.

You will need:

  • 2 1/4 t (1 packet) quick rise yeast
  • 1 c warm water
  • 2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 c Nutella

Then you will…

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water and allow to bloom for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour with the salt, sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Stir in the yeast-water mixture until combined.
  4. Lightly dust a clean counter with flour.
  5. Turn the dough out and knead for 10 minutes, or until smooth.
  6. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl.
  7. Place the dough in the prepared bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a damp cloth.
  8. Allow to rise in a warm place for an hour, or until doubled in size.
  9. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  10. Lightly dust a clean counter with flour.
  11. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle, roughly 12 x 15 inches big.
  12. Spread the Nutella on the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges of the dough.
  13. Working from the long side, roll the dough tightly.
  14. Roll so seam side is down on the counter.
  15. Starting about 3/4 inch from one end, gently slice the dough down the middle (top to bottom along the remaining length).
  16. Twist the two sides around each other, keeping the cut side facing up.
  17. Place the nutella bread on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  18. Allow to rise another 20 minutes in a warm place.
  19. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  20. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the bread is turning lightly golden and is baked through (should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom).
  21. Allow to cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
