Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 10 rolls


For the dough

  • 125 ml Semi-skimmed milk
  • 125 ml water
  • 1 Large egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp. melted butter
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 450 g Strong white bread flour
  • tsp. Instant dried yeast

For the filling

  • 200 g Nutella plus extra to drizzle after
  • 2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. golden caster sugar


  • For the dough add the ingredients in order to your bread maker and turn on at the dough setting. Form my machine this is number 6.
  • Once the dough has finished its cycle, 1 hour and 30 minutes for me knead into a small rectangle and then roll out to 16 x 8 inches. Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Warm the Nutella in the microwave for a about 15 seconds (remove the gold topping as this does microwave and is dangerous).
  • Spread the Nutella over the dough leaving 1 cm at the both ends of the long sides. Sprinkle liberally with the cinnamon and then the sugar.
  • At this point roll up the dough util you have a nice long dough sausage. Try and keep it as tight as possible without squeezing the Nutella out. Cut the dough in to about 1 ½ inch lengths. You should get about 10 equal pieces.
  • In a greased 23 cm cake springform cake tin place your first dough roll swirl side up and then place the other s around the centre. Press each down a little and then let rest for 10 minutes with a tea towel over the top.
  • Place the rolls in to the oven and then bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven allow to cool slightly in the tin (about 5 minutes) and then remove the rolls and cool for a further 5 minutes on a cake wire.
