Nutella Swedish buns


Makes 9 buns


  • 500g of bread flour
  • 15g of instant yeast
  • 85g of salted butter
  • 100g of sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 230ml of whole milk 
  • Nutella to fill (or any spread you have at home!) 


1* Pour the milk into a pan and add the cubed butter. Gently warm and melt the butter. 

2* In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the flour, salt, sugar and yeast. Add the hook attachement and give it a little whisk. Then gently pour in the milk and butter and the egg all together. 

3* Knead the dough with the hook for 5 minutes on medium speed then check it. If it is still sticky, add 1 tbsp of flour and continue to mix for another few minutes. The dough is done when it is elastic and doesn’t stick to the bowl anymore. 

4* Cover and leave to rise for 1h to 2h (you can put a bowl of boiling water in your cold /off oven and leave it there to rise).

5* Flour your worktop, roll out to a large rectangle (50cm by 25cm) and cover half of it with a thin layer of Nutella. Fold in two. 

6* Cut 5cm strips and then cut each in 3 but keeping an attachment on the top. Plait the dough and roll it around your fingers to make the bun. Place inside a cupcake tin. 

7* Cover and leave to rise for another hour until it has puffed up. Brush with some egg wash or milk before baking. 

8* Bake at 180C fan oven for 12 to 15 minutes.

Et voilà!
