I've been dreaming about making these Raspberry & Nutella Bread Rolls for a while. They are made from soft enriched bread dough that I've filled with Nutella and fresh raspberries. The sweet chocolate goes so well with the fruity raspberries, it's a combination I've had on toast many times before and really enjoyed! The process is similar to making cinnamon rolls, just the filling is different - but no less delicious! They're amazing warm fresh from the oven, or you can reheat them later and have them with ice cream.
How to make Raspberry & Nutella Bread Rolls
I started by putting the plain flour, fast action yeast, salt and sugar in a large bowl, then stirred them together. In a pan I warmed up the milk and butter until the butter melted, then I added the vanilla extract. I let the mixture cool for 5 minutes, then whisked the egg into it.
I poured the milk mixture into the flour mixture and brought everything together into a sticky dough. To knead the dough, I popped it in my mixer with the dough hook attachment for 10 minutes. Then I placed it in a covered oiled bowl to rise for 1 hour.
When it had risen, I rolled it out to a size of about 40 x 30cm (16 x 12″). I spread the Nutella over it, then added the raspberries which I cut in half.
I rolled the dough into a sausage shape and used a sharp knife to cut it into equal pieces, marking out the pieces before I cut with a ruler.
I covered them again and left them to rise for an hour. They baked for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. For extra yummyness I drizzled warm Nutella over the Raspberry & Nutella Bread Rolls, and sprinkled on some freeze dried raspberries.
Tips for making Raspberry & Nutella Bread Rolls:
- Strong white bread flour is best for this recipe, but you can use plain flour too. I find that bread flour creates a lighter result, so do use it if you can.
- This recipe would also be delicious with strawberries!

For decoration (optional)
- 1 heaped tbsp Nutella warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds
- 2 tsp Freeze dried raspberries
- Put the plain flour, fast action yeast, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Make sure that the salt and the yeast do not directly touch each other. Stir together
- In a pan on a low heat, warm up the milk and butter until the butter melts, then add the vanilla extract. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes or until lukewarm, then whisk the egg into it

- Knead the dough for 10 minutes either by hand on a floured surface or in a mixer with the dough hook attachment
- Place the kneaded dough in a oiled bowl covered with cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size
- Roll out the risen dough into a rectangle measuring roughly 40 x 30cm (16 x 12").
- Spread the Nutella over it, then cut the raspberries in half and add them on top of the Nutella
- Roll the dough into a sausage shape from the longest side, used a sharp knife to trim the ends then cut it into equal pieces. You can mark out the pieces before you cut with a ruler, you want them about 1 inch thick
