Awhile back I tried to make this Nutella Cinnamon bread, turns out Nutella doesn’t bake well in bread. Or maybe I messed it up- who knows! Still tasted good but the nutella swirled throughout the bread baked out crumbly and it made a mess.
1 cup Milk
6 Tablespoons butter
2-1/2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
2 whole eggs
1/3 cup Sugar
3-1/2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon salt
Mix the following in a small bowl
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Egg And Milk, Mixed Together, For Brushing
Softened Butter, For Smearing And Greasing
Melt butter with milk. Heat until very warm, do NOT boil. Allow this to cool until until you can touch it with your fingers. Drop your yeast in on the top. Stir it gently then let it sit for 10 minutes to proof.
In a bowl mix in your flour and salt and set aside.
In another large bowl ( get your electric mixer ready) Mix sugar and eggs until combined. Now you are ready to pour in the milk/butter/yeast mixture. Mix it and set aside once it’s combined. While mixing, add half the flour and beat on medium speed until combined. Add the other half and beat until combined. You want to beat this for about 10 minutes. Adding in just a little ( 1/4 cup flour) if sticky. If it’s not sticky don’t add more flour.
Grease and flour a bowl. set the dough in the bowl and cover with cloth for about 2 hours. Once the dough has doubled turn out onto floured surface and roll out into a rectangle.
Using a pastry brush rub the melted butter along the dough, then sprinkle the sugar raisin mixture on top of it.
Starting at the far end, roll dough toward you, keeping it tight and contained. Pinch seam to seal. Spray loaf pan. Place dough, seam down, in the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 2 hours .
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Take plastic off, Brush any left over butter on top of the bread and bake for 40 minutes. It will be nice golden brown. Remove and let cool on wire rack
