Fresh homemade bread stuffed with nutella... surely that qualifies as heaven. The second I spotted this Braided Nutella Bread from Lark & Linen I could think of nothing else. It's the yummiest stuff all coming together in a simple 6 ingredient recipe. One that I have at the top of my to-do list for this Sunday. Now my only question is, can this yummy nutella goodness be made into french toast? Too much? Never!
From Jacquelyn... Did you know that you’re just 6 ingredients away from your own braided nutella bread? I know. And I’m sorry. But I’m also totally not. Because becoming keenly aware of this little tidbit of information has been so good, and terribly bad. It means that I can indulge in a slice of this magic at any given moment. And that, my friends, is a ridiculously dangerous, but equally amazing thing.
Braided Nutella Bread
|1 1/4 cup lukewarm water||2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast|
|2 tsp. granulated sugar||3 cups all purpose flour|
|1 tsp. Salt||6 Tbsp. nutella|
In a small bowl, mix together water, yeast and sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes until mixture starts to bubble.
In the bowl of your stand mixer (or a separate bowl), fitted with the dough hook, mix together the flour and salt. Pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture and mix until combined.
Knead the dough on medium speed for 5 minutes, or by hand for 8-10 minutes.
Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with a tea towel and let it rise for 1 hour (it should double in size)
On a gently floured surface, roll out the dough until its 10" x 20" and spread nutella evenly, all over
Roll into a cylinder, cut in half and twist both halves together.
Place in a parchment lined baking sheet and let sit and rise in a warm place for 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees C and bake for 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and crispy on the outside
Let cool on a wire rack, slice and enjoy.
