Total: 1 hour



For Dough:

  • 1cupmilk
  • ¼cupbutter
  • cupsall-purpose flour,divided
  • ¼cupgranulated sugar
  • ½tspsalt
  • tspinstant or ‘rapid rise’ yeast
  • 1egg

For Cinnamon-Nutella Filing:

  • cupNutella
  • 2tbspground cinnamon
  • ½cupbutter,softened
  • 1/4cupcream cheese,softened
  • cupspowdered sugar
  • 2tbspmilk,if needed

For Nutella Drizzle:

  • cupNutella,Optional


  1. Combine milk and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for 1 minute, then remove and stir.

  2. Continue heating in 20-second intervals, pausing after each to stir, until the butter is melted and the milk is warm to the touch but not hot. If needed, let the milk mixture sit for a few minutes until it is warm but not hot.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together 3 cups flour, sugar, and salt until combined.

  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add yeast and lukewarm milk mixture and stir by hand to combine. Add the flour mixture and egg, and beat on medium-low speed until combined.

  5. If the dough is sticking to the sides of the bowl, add the remaining flour, ¼ cup at a time, until the dough begins to form a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Continue beating for 5 minutes on medium-low speed. Remove the dough hook and cover the dough with a damp towel and let rest for 10 minutes.

  6. When the dough is ready, turn it out onto a floured work surface. Then use a floured rolling pin to roll the dough out into a large rectangle, about 14×9-inch in size.

  7. Use a knife or spoon to spread the Nutella evenly over the top of the surface, leaving a ¼-inch border at the bottom of the 14-inch edge. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly on top of the Nutella.

  8. Beginning at the top 14-inch edge, tightly roll up the dough. Then give the final seam a little pinch so that it seals. Use a piece of dental floss to cut off the two ends of the roll so that they are even.

  9. Then cut the remaining dough into 11 or 12 equal pieces.

  10. Place each of the cut cinnamon rolls into a greased pie plate or 9×13-inch baking dish. Then cover again with a damp towel, and leave the dish in a warm place to rise for 25 minutes.

  11. When the rolls have risen, uncover the dish. Then place on the center rack of the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the rolls are golden and cooked through.

  12. Remove and let cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes. Drizzle with your desired icing and Nutella and serve.

  13. Either in the bowl of an electric stand mixer, whisk softened butter and cream cheese together until combined. Then whisk in powdered sugar until combined.

  14. Warm Nutella in the microwave for a few seconds to help make it more spreadable, if desired. Then use either a piping bag to pipe it onto the cinnamon rolls, or use a fork to drizzle it on.
