My last two posts were about pumpkins and pumpkin recipes so even though it is fall, I thought I would switch it up. So, we are talking some of the best breakfast treats around…. Nutella Swirl Rolls with Pecan Praline Glaze. Oh. My. Goodness. These are soooo good. And soooo decadent. Perfect as a special treat for your family, or when guests start coming into town. When I was making these I was just drooling in anticipation, they are so delicious! Nutella happens to be my favorite since I grew up on it every time I went to India. These definitely are a special treat. I started out by making a dough very similar to a cinnamon roll dough. Making it the night before and letting it rise for the next morning cuts out the working time in the morning.
OMG look at all that delicious Nutella
Once you pull the cinnamon rolls out of the oven, drizzle the glaze evenly over the rolls.
Nutella Swirl Rolls with Pecan Praline Glaze
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- 1/2 tbsp instant yeast
- 1/2 cup warm milk
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup softened butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour
Pecan Praline Glaze
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 4 tbsp heavy whipping cream
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Soak the yeast in the warm milk for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly. Mix in sugar, butter, salt and egg. Stir in the flour until the dough comes together.
Knead the dough on a floured surface for a few minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and let rise until double in size.
Punch the dough down and need a few times until smooth.
Roll the dough into an 10 by 18 inch rectangle. Spread the Nutella on the dough evenly and to the edges. Roll into log starting from short side.
Cut the log, using a sharp knife, into 8 rolls. Place them on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
