Naughty Nutella Buns Recipe!

Here’s my recipe for our decadent Nutella buns, oozing with chocolate and hazelnut, the ideal doughy afternoon treat, pile them high and spoil the whole family!



For the Brioche Dough –
500g strong white bread lfour
25g caster sugar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
A sachet of 7g fast action yeast
250ml  milk
2 large eggs
100g unsalted butter at room temperature


For the filling:

240g Nutella
150g full/fat soft cheese


For the topping:

150g Nutella
2.5 tbs milk
2tbs icing sugar
Chopped hazelnuts  (optional )

Tin required – 9 x 13inch / 23 x 33cm
( or the closest you have in your pantry)  with a depth of 2 inches at least.



For the brioche dough place the flour, sugar, salt and yeast into the bowl of a mixer
with a dough hook attachment and mix to combine.

Pour in the milk and eggs and mix together – then knead on a low to medium speed for 10-15 minutes
until smooth and elastic and pulling from the sides of the bowl.

Tip your dough into a large, lightly greased bowl, cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight
(for at least 8 hours) or for up to 2 days.

Line the base of the baking tin with parchment paper.

Roll out the chilled dough on a lightly floured work surface into roughly a 40x 50cm rectangle.

Beat together the cream cheese and Nutella and spread over your dough.
Tightly roll up the dough (remember you are starting from the long edge) into a long sausage.
Cut into 12 equal slices and place cut – side up in the prepared tin.
Cover with clingfilm and leave to prove in a warm place for 45 mins – 1 hour
or until the rolls are touching each other and feel quite puffy to the touch.

Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C / 375 degrees F / Gas Mark 5.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
Set aside while you make the topping.


For the topping:

Place the Nutella, milk and icing sugar into a bowl and beat together to form a smooth (quite runny) paste.

Drizzle this over your Nutella Buns and sprinkle with the chopped hazelnuts (optional) – Yum!
