Nutella and Vanilla Cream Rolls

Had such a lovely weekend home alone with my kids, as my husband were in Germany over the weekend. Yesterday we had such a nice Spring day with a lot of sun. The sun actually was warming and while my two daughters were playing in the grass in our garden as they had gotten some energy after both of them have been sick during the week, I took the time and sat down in the grass and enjoyed the warm sun. It really felt like Spring is finally here!

As Spring is here we are starting to get more energy and we want to spend a little more time outside. People and families tend to drink their coffee and lemonade outside and doing nice picnics in the garden or maybe on the playground when the Spring weather is lovely.

Nutella and vanilla cream rolls are perfect for on the go rolls to bring for “fika” (as it called in Swedish :)), when you want to bring a snack with you when you are going out or when you are just taking a coffee on the porch.

Nutella and Vanilla Cream Rolls

The filling with Nutella and vanilla cream are SO delish and it’s great to have a bunch of these rolls in the freezer, cause then you have something good to serve when you have friends over. You can defrost them a little in the microwave or let them defrost on the counter for a while before serving.

Ingredients
  • 150 grams butter
  • 2 cups milk
  • 50 grams yeast
  • 0.4 cup sugar
  • 0.5 teaspoon salt
  • 5.9 cups flour
  • 1 egg
Filling
  • 250 grams nutella
  • 1.6 cups vanilla cream
Instructions
  1. Melt the butter in a pot. Add the milk and let it be about finger heat, about 37 degrees.

  2. Crumb the yeast into a big baking bowl. Pour some of the liquid in and stir so that the yeast dissolves. Add the remaining liquid and sugar and salt.

  3. Add most of the flour. However, save a little for later so, about 0,4 cup to use when you are working with the dough on the table.

  4. Work the dough into a smooth dough. You can use a machine or just do it by hand like I usually do (as I don't have any awesome kitchen machine yet :))

  5. Knead the dough smoothly on a floured table or on the kitchen counter. Then cut it into two pieces.

  6. Roll each piece into a rectangular flat cake. You can roll so the dough is about under 1 cm thick, around 0,5 cm thick. 

  7. Use a butter knife or like a spatula for layering the Nutella. I used the whole jar of 250 grams Nutella for both pieces. Then roll both pieces into two big rolls.

  8. Cut the rolls into smaller pieces, about 2-2,5 cm thick pieces. (It's okay if some are getting thicker :)) Put the small rolls on an oven plate with baking sheets, it's a good idea to leave some space between each roll as they rise even more in the oven, so prepare two plates with baking sheets. 

  9. Now the Nutella rolls need to lay under towels again, so they can rise for 30 minutes before you do the last touches.

  10. When the rolls are resting, you can prepare the vanilla cream. NOTE: I didn't use a homemade vanilla cream for this recipe. I used a mixture that I added with milk and mixed it together. It works great whatever you choose for the vanilla cream. Put on the oven to 250 Celcius (482 F).

  11. When the 30 minutes are done it's time to do a small hole in the center of each Nutella roll, just so you have a base for your vanilla cream. Take a teaspoon and put a little vanilla cream in the center of each roll.

  12. Take the egg and whisk it into a small bowl, cause now it's time to brush each roll before they are going into the oven. I didn't brush egg on the vanilla cream, so just brush around it and on the sides.

  13. Bake one plate at a time in the middle of the oven for 7-8 minutes. After they are finished in the oven, let them cool down. 

  14. Before serving...sprinkle over some powder sugar (optional).

    These look so tasty! I’m glad that you mentioned freezing them. I think that is a great plan. Sometimes I get really motivated to bake but there are long spans when I don’t. If I made extra when I was super motivated, freezing the extra would ensure there would be tasty treats available even when my drive to bake is non-existent.

    I’m not really a fan of Nutella, but these cream rolls look really yummy, especially as a snack on the go in the spring.

      Yeah…it’s a lot of Nutella on these so if you don’t like Nutella you could try a different filling or use just vanilla cream 🙂
