Nutella Bread Rolls

The original recipe named Marble bread from Sedap magazine. As I was lazy, I did not make the chocolate filling, but instead I replaced it with Nutella, then I re-name it to Nutella Bread Rolls hehehee … :)

Here is the half-recipe that I baked.

250 gr Bread flour
7 gr Milk powder
4 gr Instant Yeast
40 gr Sugar

B.30 gr Egg
25 gr Milk
65 gr Ice water

C.25 gr Butter
1 gr Salt

D.75 gr Pastry margarine

Filling: Nutella

Method:- Mix A until well-blended.
- Mix well B, then add in A and knead until well-blended.
- Add C and knead to form elastic dough. Set aside to proof in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Roll the dough flat into rectangular shape. Spread the pastry margarine on top dough, then fold the dough from both ends to wrap up the pastry margarine (make 3 folds).

- Then roll the dough flat again, spread Nutella all over the dough, and wrap into 3 folds. Let it rest for 15 minutes.

- Then roll the dough flat again into rectangular shape, then wrap into 3 folds again, let it rest another 15 minutes.
- Roll it flat into 1 cm thickness. Cut around 1 cm width into long strips, roll it.

- Place it on the greased swiss roll tin, and let it proof for 45 minutes.
- Bake at 190C for 15 minutes.

  1. Hi DG, your bread rolls looks so yummy, it is really a good ideas using Nutella :)

  2. Beautiful rolls. Would be great with a cup of tea.

  3. look like store-bought, must b very yummy. too bad I ve no confidence on bread making cos need to knead by hand :(

  4. Hi Doris,

    I made the chocolate marble rolls two weeks ago. Oh! it not easy. The chocolate filling melts and ooze out from the dough during rolling. Yours is easier, I didn't think of using nutella spread instead.

  5. Everything4sweets,
    You cannot go wrong with Nutella ;)

    Thank you for your compliments :)

    Thanks ... actually I only used standard cake mixer with the dough hook to beat it. I ever tried to knead by hand, but not as smooth as mixer, and somemore mixer more easier. I believe you can do the bread as well. :)

    I agree with you. Most important try not to let the filling leak from the dough, so when I did the rolling, I tried not to press it too hard.

  6. Thank you for sharing the pictures on step-by-step process for making this nutella rolls! I shall try out your method. Thanks!

  7. Hi Kitchen Corner,
    Your welcome and thanks for visiting my blog :)

  8. Hai DG, tried ur recipe yesterday, got some questions to ask :) the bread's texture is hard, is that supposed to be like that? not the soft kind...i have to heat it up in the microwave before eat it :)
    followed ur recipe step by step but i didn't put the dough inside the fridge to proof it, just put the dough in the bowl and put it on the table...
    what is the difference btw put the dough in the fridge and room temperature? thanks alot for ur kind help!:)

  9. First of all, thanks for leaving a note here. I'm sorry I cannot help much on your question.
    I am actually no expert in bread maker. At that time I just follow straight from the book's instruction, so I really not sure what is the difference. But reading thru internet, your method (put the dough in the bowl/more common method) will actually speed-up the proof process compare to the cold method (put the dough in the fridge). As the recipe formulated for refrigerator, so the dough yield stiffer and easier to shape after refrigeration.

    I also learn by doing, that we also need to cover the dough in the bowl or on the table, to prevent the dough getting dry.

    The bread texture of this bread, was not as fluffy as normal bun, as maybe pastry margarine was used in the recipe, therefore it had a texture slightly mixture of bread & croissant. However, for my case the roll was soft while it hot, but like yours turn hard when it cold too.
    Hope this reply suffice :)

  11. Hi Anon,
