These are delicious.
I already have a cinnamon bun recipe on my blog, so when I came across this nutella version, I had to try it. The dough is amazing, it is soft and delicious with the nutella filling. The mascarpone frosting was perfect.
My kids loved these. They are delicious warm, straight out of the oven, they are delicious at room temperature. But can I say I also love them straight out of the fridge, when they are cold.
This is a recipe worth trying, we loved them, hope you do to.
Makes 12 buns
For the dough:
2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup warm milk
4 ½ cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 eggs, slightly beaten
For the filling:
approximately 1 to 1 ½ cups Nutella
For the frosting:
1/3 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
In a large bowl combine yeast, 2 tablespoons sugar, and warm milk. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the dough ingredients and mix, using a stand mixer with a hook attachment (if you don’t have a stand mixer, combine the dough with your hands). Knead for a few minutes until smooth.
Spray a large bowl with cooking spray, place the dough inside, and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rest for about 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
Place the dough on a floured surface and roll out into a large rectangle (about 40 x 53cm).
Scoop Nutella into a microwave safe bowl, and heat in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Spread the Nutella over the dough. Roll the dough into a large log, and cut into 12 segments.
Place the rolls inside the pan, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for about 30 minutes (or overnight in the refrigerator).
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 205C/185C.
Make the frosting. Using an electric mixer, beat the frosting ingredients until well incorporated. Set aside.
Bake the rolls for about 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Do not over-bake. Immediately spread the frosting on the rolls. Serve warm.
