Does is get any better than freshly baked bread swirled and braided with sweet rich Nutella? I don’t think so. That’s why I’m certain you’re going to love this Braided Nutella Bread recipe.

Now, if you intimidated with make bread from yeast at home. Don’t be. It’s not as scary as you might think. Plus, if I can do it, so can you!

This year I’ve been teach myself how to make bread and it’s been such a rewarding process. Like many others I had a fear of working with yeast-based recipes.

However, after many successes (and a few failures) I’m feeling more comfortable and excited to get a bit more brave with the recipes I’m tracking. That’s what led me to try this Braided Nutella Bread.

So, how do you make it?

The recipe starts with a pretty standard dough recipe. Once that’s ready, a good helping of nutty, chocolate Nutella gets slathered on and roll up inside.

I was excited to try this recipe because of the braiding technique. It’s actually more of a twist, but the effect is still pretty cool.

It looks a bit more changeling that it actually is to do. The roll dough just gets sliced down the middle and then twisted together. The layers of roll-up dough is what creates all the unique marbling and swirling in the bread.

To be honest, I was a little bit nervous about attempting the braiding at first, but it was a lot easier than it looked. Clearly I haven’t mastered the technique, but I think it still looks pretty.

Prep Time: 20 minutes minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes minutes

Rising: 1 hour hour 20 minutes minutes

Total Time: 2 hours hours

Servings: 10

Calories: 207kcal

Ingredients

  • ½ teaspoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • Cornmeal for dusting
  • 1 egg beaten with a tablespoon of water to use as an egg wash

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in ¼ cup of the water. Let sit for 10 minutes to activate.

  • Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. After add yeast and the remaining water, mix on low with a dough hook attachment. Turn speed up to medium, and knead dough for about 7 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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 in a microwave-safe bowl for about 30 seconds. This makes spreading it much easier.) Roll tightly and place on a parchment-lined / silicon-lined baking sheet that’s been sprinkled with cornmeal. 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.

  • 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.

  • *My bread got a little bit darker then I would have liked. Keep a close eye on your bread when you increase the temperature.
