Serves: Serves 8
Pull-Apart Bread Dough
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp.)
  • 4 cups + ½ cup AP flour separated
  • ½ tsp. Baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Baking soda
  • 2 tsp. Salt
Nutella Topping & Spread
  • 1 cup nutella + ⅓ cup separated
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs. Butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk
  • Pinch of salt
  1. In a large sauce pan or dutch oven, whisk together milk, melted butter, and sugar. Heat over medium until the milk gets frothy, remove from heat and let cool to a luke-warm temperature.
  2. Add in the yeast and stir so that all of the granules are moistened. Wait about 5 minutes before adding the 4 cups of flour. Give it a good stir until it is all combined. Cover and let rise about an hour.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the remaining half cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sprinkle the dry mixture over the dough, and stir until it is mixed in.
  4. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for about a minute to thoroughly incorporate the dry mixture.
  5. Roll the dough out into a large rectangular shape about ¼ inch thick. Spread 1 cup of the nutella over the surface of the dough.
  6. Cut six or eight equal strips (along the shorter edge of the rectangle). Stack the strips and cut into six portions. Grease a loaf pan with some butter, and lay the stacked dough portions sideways in the loaf pan.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and let dough rise in the pan for about 30 minutes, or until it gets puffy and starts to fill in. Bake 30 minutes.
  8. Mix powdered sugar, melted, milk, and a pinch of salt in a liquid measuring cup (for easy pouring). In a small bowl, microwave the remaining nutella til it is a thin pourable consistency. Drizzle the icing and extra nutella over the top and serve warm.
- Microwave the nutella to make it easier to spread and drizzle.
- Brown the butter to give an extra boost of nutty flavor.
- If you notice the top of your pull-apart bread getting too brown while baking, loosely cover with a piece of foil and continue baking.
- Cover leftovers with damp paper towel before microwaving to reheat and keep it from drying out.
