Nutella Pull Apart Bread is a soft, easy to make, enriched bread that pulls apart with Nutella and cinnamon sugar in between each slice.
I told you a sweet version of my garlic and cheese pull apart bread was coming!
Well… It has a arrived!
Pull apart bread can be a bit fiddly but believe me when I say it is so worth it once it’s made!
Pull apart bread allows you to have the topping/filling on every single slice.
The instructions for the pull apart can be a little bit hard to follow so I intend to do a step by step video for you guys but in the mean time, if you are struggling to follow the assembly of the bread, please leave your questions below and I will try to answer them in as much detail as possible!
I hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy in these strange and confusing times and I hope this is a recipe you can make with your family and enjoy together in ‘quarantine/self isolation’. And of course, anytime throughout the years to come!

Nutella Pull Apart Bread
- 1/4 Cup Butter, Melted (55g)
- 1 Cup Luke Warm Milk
- 2 Tbsp. Sugar (25g)
- 1 Tbsp. Dry Active Yeast
- 1 Large Egg
- 2 and 3/4 Cups High Grade Flour (or Bread Flour, All Purpose Flour) (330g)
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 Cup Nutella (296g)
- 2 Tbsp. Cinnamon
- 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar (140g)
- In a small bowl combine the luke warm milk, melted butter, sugar and yeast and set aside for 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment attached, place the flour and salt.
- Add in the yeast mixture and the egg and on a low speed, mix the ingredients until the flour is mostly incorporated.
- Attach the dough hook and turn onto medium speed and mix until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
- The mixture will be soft and slightly sticky but not stick to your hands.
- Transfer the dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl and cover with a towel and let rise in a warm, dry place until it doubles in size. (Around an hour).
- While the dough is rising, combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
- Melt the Nutella until spreadable and set aside.
- Grease a "9×5" loaf pan with cooking spray or butter. I like to also add a strip of cooking paper in the middle of the pan with a piece hanging off each side as 'handles' to get the bread out easier once baked.
- Punch down the dough and turn out onto a floured bench.
- Roll the dough into a large rectangle (around 10"x20").
- Spread over the melted Nutella until the dough is covered. You can add more Nutella if you want a thicker layer.
- Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the Nutella. (I like to leave around 2 tablespoons of the mixture to sprinkle over the top of the loaf at the end.)
- Slice the dough into strips. You will have around 8-10 strips depending how thick you want your strips. They should be cut along the 20" length so they will all be 10" long.
- Gently layer all the strips on top of each other into one pile.
- Using the knife, cut the pile into thirds so you should now have three piles.
- Arrange the piles in a row, turned on their side in your prepared loaf pan. Top with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
- Cover the pan and let the dough rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size for around 30-40 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and bake the loaf for about 30-35 minutes. The top should be golden and sound hollow when tapped.
- If the top seems to be over-browning or turning black, cover the top loosely with sheet of tin (aluminum) foil and continue cooking.
- Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then run a knife around the edge and using the baking paper handles, remove loaf to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
