Nutella Briosche Bread | FoodieWednesday

Hello everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!
Today's Foodie Wednesday happens to be on Christmas day, 
how cool is that?

For this reason I decided to give you a Christmassy recipe that you can bake all year around as well:
it's the Nutella Briosche Bread (or at least that's how I call it!)

You will need:

300 g of flour
300 g of strong flour
1 yeast bag
35 g of sugar
2 eggs
45 g of butter
190 ml of milk
lemon peel
Icing sugar

How to do this:

Put everything (except for the Nutella and the Icing Sugar)
in a mixer (or use a hand one)

Little note: the butter should be at room temperature,
or it won't mix properly

Blend everthing until it looks like a nice and smooth loaf.

Leave it there to rise for at least an hour.

After an hour, you're ready to work with your loaf.
Divide the loaf into 3 equal parts and start with the first one.
Use a rolling pin and spread the pastry out on the table.

Try to spread it in a circular shape, about 30 cm of diameter.

Spread the Nutella on top of the first layer of pastry
Then repeat the procedure for the other two parts of pastry you left behind.

At the end you'll have 3 layers of pastry with two layers of Nutella inside.

Start cutting a classic cross on your pastry, but avoid the very center of the circle.
You'll have now 4 sections. Divide it  now into 8, and then into 16.

Work with two slices at one time: roll each of them outward twice,
then join the far ends together.

Repeat the procedure for every slice and you'll get this star shape.
Leave it to rise until it becomes twice as big as it is now.

Bake it in the oven for 30 mins at  about 180°C.

Sprinkle some icing sugar on top of it and you're ready to eat it.
Yummy, isn't it?

Happy & Merry Christmas to you all
& Thank you for coming over!
