There is nothing more inviting than freshly cooked bread, that sweet aroma wafting through the house on a cold winters day. I remember many moons ago my parents were selling one of the many family homes I lived in as child, we moved around a lot. Dad decided to bake some bread, as after all thats what they tell you to do when selling a home. I guess its suppose to make it homely and invite you in and say sure sit down, this is where you can see yourself living. Well my dad isn’t much of a baker and he burnt the bread, so the house didn’t have that warm inviting smell instead it stank like a burnt oven. Luckily we had time to open the windows and let the burn vapours dissolve away. Someone did buy the house and we moved to our next home. When one door closes another opens they say.
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 cup milk
50g melted butter
1 cup Nutella
Place the flour, salt, sugar, chocolate chips and yeast into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the egg, milk, and melted butter, and stir until the mixture forms a dough.
Remove from the bowl and kneed on a floured surface for 10 minutes or until smooth, sprinkle with flour as needed. Place in an oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap, let it rest in a warm place until it doubles in size.
Pre heat oven to 180°C
Roll the dough out on a floured bench into a rectangle with a thickness of about 1cm. Spoon the Nutella onto the dough, and spread it over. Roll the dough up from its longest end, and then cut into slices of about 2.5 cm in thickness.
Place the scrolls onto a greased oven tray so that they are grouped together and touching. Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
