Nutella Braided Bread

Welcome to a new edition of Blogging Marathon. This month is a special one as this is going to be a Mega marathon. We as a BM group will be 'Firing up our oven' and baking for 26 days of this month, sundays being a rest day!

So check out the baked goodies which will be showcased here and at my fellow BMers for the month of April. I have divided all my bakes into categories like Breads n Rolls, Cakes n Muffins, Savory Bakes and Cookies. All of them will be posted in a random order so watch out for the surprise goodies each day..

For Day 1 of BM #51, I baked this Nutella Braided Bread which was loved by one and all at home. If you are a Nutella fan, this is a must make ! Though the process sounds laborious, it is pretty easy to put together.

Ingredients - 

All Purpose Flour / Maida 2 1/4 cup
Salt 1/2 tsp
Olive Oil 2 Tbsp
Lime/Lemon/Orange Zest 2 tsp
Sugar 1 Tbsp
Active Dry Yeast 1 tsp
Warm Water 1/2 ~ 3/4 cup (start with half cup)
Nutella 1/2 cup 
Milk 2 Tbsp for brushing

Nutella Braided Bread

Method Of Preparation -

Add sugar in 1/2 a cup of warm water and add yeast to it and set aside in a warm place for about 10 minutes or until the solution froths up.

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, lime zest and rub in the olive oil.

Add in the yeast solution and knead into a soft and pliable dough adding more warm water as needed.

Cover the dough and set it aside in a warm place for about 90 minutes or until the dough is doubled.

Flour a working surface and roll the dough into a 9 X 12 rectangle.

Spread the Nutella evenly all over leaving one inch on all the edges.

Roll tightly (carpet roll/Jelly roll) from the longer side, tuck the ends and the place seam side at the bottom.

Leaving one end intact cut the rolled log down the middle with a knife.

Twist the halves upwards for the Nutella to be seen.

Braid by twisting one-half over the other. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

Nutella Braided Bread Prep

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Place the braided dough on a parchment lined baking tray.

Remove the plastic wrap, brush the braided dough with milk before baking it.

Bake it for about 20 minutes or until the bread is cooked through.

Drizzle with some more Nutella and slice it upon cooling.
