  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 packet rapid or quick yeast
  • 3 cups flour bread flour, preferably
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stick of butter melted and cooled
  • Nutella


  • Warm milk in microwave for 40 - 50 seconds on HIGH. It should be warm, but not hot.
  • Combine milk, sugar, and yeast and let sit for 5 minutes or until foamy.
  • Place flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. On low, add yeast mixture and cooled butter. Combine until smooth. Increase speed and knead for 3-5 minutes.
  • Place dough in a large bowl that has been "greased" with oil, turning to coat the dough.
  • Place in a warm place and allow to rise until doubled in size, about an hour. Divide dough in half and work one half at a time.
  • Roll each half into a rectangle on a lightly-floured surface.
  • Spread Nutella down the middle third of the rectangle lengthwise.
  • With a sharp knife, cut 1-inch strips down both sides of dough from filling to edge.
  • Starting at one end, fold a strip from one sides towards the middle. Next, fold the strip directly across over onto the first strip. Repeat. (See How to Braid Bread for further directions.)
  • Place on a baking sheet and let rise for about 1 hour or until it has doubled again. (I like to spray my loaves with nonstick spray.)
  • Bake loaves for 20 to 25 minutes in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting. Store in an airtight container.
