Nutella Braided Bread

Indulging in a swirl of sweet hazelnut dreams. #SweetDelights. Irresistible hazelnut goodness meets soft, chewy bread – a match made in culinary heaven.

Nutella has a special place in our hearts, especially in my daughter’s, who believes it can make anything taste better. So, when the idea of creating Nutella Braided Bread came to mind, we knew it would be a sweet, delightful adventure.

This bread is crafted using our trusted bread recipe, the same one that brought you the soft, moist, and chewy goodness of our Ube Loaf and Monggo Loaf. But don’t be fooled by its intricate appearance; this recipe is simplicity at its finest. Just toss the ingredients into a mixing bowl, and let the magic happen.

Units Scale

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup sugar


  • 2 cups Nutella
  • 1 cup roughly ground roasted hazelnuts

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp water



  1. In a large bowl combine Nutella and hazelnuts together. Set it aside


  1. Place dry and wet ingredients in a bread maker or a stand mixer.
  2. If you use a bread maker, put it in knead setting and let it do its work until it finishes from kneading to proofing, the dough will grow to 1 1/2 times its original size.
  3. If you are using a stand mixer, Use the dough hook attachment, and turn on the mixer to stir. Mix for 20 minutes. Once done, proof dough by covering the mixing bowl with damp cloth and placing it in a warm spot, leave it there for 1 hour or until dough had grown to 1 1/2 times its original size.
  4. Prepare and grease two loaf pans. Set it aside.
  5. Divide the dough equally into two separate pieces.
  6. Flatten each piece into a rectangle shape, it should be around 1/2 inch thick. Once done spread half of Nutella Mixture. Now fold the rectangle on both sides up to the middle of the dough. Do it again on the perpendicular side. Gently flatten the dough and form it into a rectangle shape. Slice through into three sections leaving the top bit intact, then braid. Do this with the remaining half of the dough.
  7. Place the braided dough into the loaf pan then let it proof for another hour or until it is nearly doubled in size.
  8. Mix together egg wash ingredients then brush it over the prepared dough.
  9. Bake in a 170C preheated oven for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven, let it cool before removing it from the loaf pan.

  1. It’s like cinnamon swirl bread but with Nutella – what a great idea! I need this for breakfast right about now…with a big cup of coffee of course!

  2. Hannah says:

    Gorgeous swirl! Also loving the potato inclusion here; they really make for the most tender breads.

  3. Michelle says:

    Such a lovely braided bread with delicious creamy nutella! I’d pair it with a good hot cup of coffee!

  4. What is not to love about this recipe? It is beautiful, and I can only imagine how good it tastes. (Once I make it, I will no longer need to imagine!) Your daughter is definitely right — Nutella makes almost everything taste better!

    Wow. This is incredible.

  6. suituapui says:

    Nutella, the favourite of many!

  7. Oh my goodness, what a beautiful braided bread with a terrific colour and packed with a ton of flavour (and apparently, calories too lol; but it’s worth of every single calorie.) I love that you added chopped hazelnuts for a nice texture and more pronounced nutty flavor.
