I was excited to try this recipe because of the braiding technique. It’s actually more of a twist, but the effect is still pretty cool.

It looks a bit more changeling that it actually is to do. The roll dough just gets sliced down the middle and then twisted together. The layers of roll-up dough is what creates all the unique marbling and swirling in the bread.

  • ½ teaspoon yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • Cornmeal for dusting
  • 1 egg beaten with a tablespoon of water to use as an egg wash


  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in ¼ cup of the water. Let sit for 10 minutes to activate.

  • Meanwhile, combine flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. After add yeast and the remaining water, mix on low with a dough hook attachment. Turn speed up to medium, and knead dough for about 7 minutes.

  • Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap, and then set in a warm place. The dough is ready when doubled in size – about an hour.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to form a rectangle, roughly 12 x 15”. Spread Nutella in an even layer on the surface, leaving a ½ inch border of dough. (I found it helpful to heat the Nutella in a microwave-safe bowl for about 30 seconds. This makes spreading it much easier.) Roll tightly and place on a parchment-lined / silicon-lined baking sheet that’s been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cut the dough down the middle with a knife, leaving one end intact. Twist ends overtop each other, making sure to turn cut side toward the top. Cover dough loosely with plastic wrap and let sit 20 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush surface of the bread with the egg wash. Bake bread for 20 minutes. Raise temperature to 425°F and bake until lightly browned on top, about 5-7 minutes more.* Remove from oven, and let cool before serving.

  • *My bread got a little bit darker then I would have liked. Keep a close eye on your bread when you increase the temperature.
