BM# 51 — Baking Marathon: Day 6
Bake of the Day: Breads — Hazelnut Spread Swirl Bread
OK, so here’s the story behind this bread: This Nutella swirl bread recipe is from Costco connection cookbook and the photo looked absolutely amazing and I wanted to make it for my chocolate loving son. The recipe is quite simple, dough with flour-yeast-sugar, 1 rise, then roll and spread Nutella, re-roll, cut and bake.
Attempt 1: Recipe says — brush water on the top and sprinkle with sugar. I got very smart and brushed milk on top and baked it for as long as the recipe suggested.
Result: Bread looks almost burnt and turns into a big crispy cookie.
Attempt 2: Recipe CLEARLY says — Hazelnut spread (aka Nutella) swirl bread. I got toooooo intelligent and used a chocolate spread with candy in it. Baked it for less time though.
Result: You can see for yourself.
Attempt 3: Followed the recipe and made adjustments according to my learnings. Result is almost what I was expecting.
All in all, if you are a Nutella fanatic, then this is the bread for you. The dough itself is not too sweet, sweetness comes from the sugar sprinkled on top and the nutella spread. It’s great for breakfast with some fruit and milk.
