Nutella rolls (& some cinnamon rolls as well)


It's been snowing here for the last couple of days pretty much without stop, so today I decided to try out my baking skills. Cinnamon rolls are something that I bake quite often as far as baking goes, so today I wanted to try out something a little bit different. I absolutely love Nutella, and I love rolls as well, so I figured I would try to combine the two and make Nutella rolls. They actually turned out really well, so I though I would share my recipe and some pictures with you. 
  

The things you will need are:

1 kg all-purpose flour 
1,5 packets of yeast (approx. 18 g dried/50 g fresh)
200-300 g sugar
200 g butter
5 dl milk
1 tsp cardamom 


The first thing you do is melt butter and add milk. Then you add the yeast (crumble it into the mixture if you're using fresh yeast). Add all the dry ingredients, and mix until everything is combined.


Then you have to let the dough rise for about an hour or until it has doubled in size and looks something like this.

Put your dough on your baking surface and roll it out to a big, flat rectangle. How thin you want it is a lot up to you, but I like to make it quite thin so I can put more cinnamon and sugar, or in this case Nutella on it :)

The next step is to add your content. As you can see I decided to go with half Nutella and half cinnamon, sugar and butter. For the Nutella side all you have to do is spread the Nutella out on your dough. For the cinnamon side I first spread out some butter with a knife and then added sugar and cinnamon on top. (There should more cinnamon on the dough than shown in this picture!)


When you're happy with the content, you start rolling the dough as shown to the left over, and when you're done it should look something like the picture on the right. Cut across the roll in about finger-thick slices. 


Spread your slices on a baking sheet and then it is time to let them rise again. To speed up the rising process you can place the sheets in a warm place, for example close to a heater or over a sink filled  with hot water.
When your happy with the size of the rolls (after around another hour if you have time), you put them in the oven at 225*C (435F) for about 8-10 mins. 


And that's it! Both of the versions turned out really good, if I shall say so myself. Haha. But they're actually pretty good, so if you're in the mood for some comfort food on a cold winter night you should definitely try these out :)
Do you like to bake or make food? What's your favorite thing to make?

  9. I have a love affair with cinnamon rolls straight out the oven already, but NUTELLA rolls?! Oh my! Definitely going to try this recipe out straight away, because in my opinion, the only way to take an already wonderful pastry to heavenly heights is to add nutella into the mix. ;) Thanks for sharing!
