Nutella Walnut Roll

This weekend went by too fast!  We hosted some of Shaun’s family at our house for the weekend.  It was nice having them here to visit Olivia and keep her busy while I was on call with work.  (Don’t worry I get to work from home when I am on call.)  Olivia kept them all entertained by chatting with them constantly.  She definitely found her voice and loves to use it.

I can honestly say that I feel like she went from 3 months to 6 months just this weekend.  She is acting so big and is just a delight to be around all the time.

Nutella Walnut Roll

Since we had company I decided to try out a new recipe.  Sometimes it can go badly if you are trying a recipe out for the first time especially baked goods.  People feel inclined to tell you that it turned out nicely even if it was a complete and utter failure.  Well no worries with this walnut nutella roll.  They turned out even better than I imagined.  The good news is that I have enough that I can even share with my co-workers this week.

ENJOY~ Meagan

Nutella Walnut Roll

Delicious bread rolled with nutella, walnuts and topped with a simple icing.

Cook Time: 15-18 minutes


For the Dough
1 cup whole milk
3 Tbsp butter, unsalted
4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 lg egg
2 1/4 tsp active yeast
1 tsp salt
nonstick cooking spray

For the Filling
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup Nutella
2 ounces chopped walnuts
1/48cup sugar

For the Icing
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp whole milk
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


For the Dough
In a liquid measuring cup add the milk and butter. Heat in the microwave for 35 seconds. Place the liquid into a mixing bowl.
Add 1 cup of flour to the mixture along with the sugar, egg, yeast and salt. Using the paddle attachment mix the dough and then slowly start to add the rest of the flour mixture. (I used more flour than the original recipe and if you need more because it is still sticky start to add 1/4 cup at a time.)
Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured work space. Knead the dough into a ball shape for about 5 minutes.
Spray a bowl with cooking spray and roll the dough into the bowl until it is well coated. Place in a warm area covered for 2 hours.
Remove the dough from the bowl and place back on a floured surface and roll out the dough until it forms a thin rectangular shape.

For the Filling
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spread out the nutella onto the top of the dough with a spatula.
Top with the melted butter, then walnuts followed by the sugar.
Starting with one end roll up the dough to form a long tube shape. (You may have butter coming out from all ends.)
Using a sharp knife start to cut down on the dough about a half inch in width. Place the rolls into two sprayed circular pans. Make sure to leave enough room for the rolls to expand while cooking.
(Knife may need to be washed with water after 3 or 4 slices to make sure the slices stay clean from the nutella oozing out.)
Place the pans on the middle rack and bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Icing
In a bowl combine all of the ingredients and stir with a spoon. When rolls come out of the oven drizzle the icing on top.

Best served warm.
