  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 package Dried Active Yeast (7g)
  • 125ml Lukewarm Water
  • 180g Plain Flour

  • Nutella
  • 30g Butter, melted
  • 25g White Sugar

  • 1T Cinnamon


  • Heat  the butter and milk in a microwave until the butter is melted.
  • In a large bowl mix the 20g sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  • Pour the warm butter mixture into a large bowl and stir.
  • In a separate small bowl, stir the yeast, lukewarm water and 5g sugar until the yeast is dissolved.
  • Let the yeast mix sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes all frothy, if it doesn’t your yeast most likely wont work.
  • Mix in most of the flour till you get a sticky dough, saving a few tablespoons.
  • Place the dough onto a floured board or clean surface. Sprinkle the remaining flour onto the dough and knead into the dough until it’s soft and smooth, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Grease a bowl either with a bit of oil. Place the dough into the greased bowl and cover it with a towel.
  • Let it rise for 1-1/2 hours. The dough should double in size.
  • Place the risen dough on a floured surface and knead it again for just a minute or two this time.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangular-ish shape (most likely a long oval ‘thingy’.
  • Spread the melted butter onto the rolled dough. Mix the filling ingredients (aside from butter) in another bowl.
  • Sprinkle it over the buttered dough. Roll the dough up into, well, a roll.
  • The tighter you roll it, the better the dough will stay together once it is baked.
  • Place the roll of dough into a greased bread pan with the seam of the dough facing the bottom of it.
  • Cover one more time and let it rise for 30-45 minutes.
  • Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 5 Take a knife and score the dough by cutting 3 slashes diagonally across the top of the loaf.
  • Bake the bread for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Let the bread cool slightly before cutting it into beautiful slice
