  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 mins
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Pastry


  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast (or baker’s yeast)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1.3 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons warm water
  • 3.5 cups flour
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate (or baking chocolate, grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 89 ounces Nutella


  1. Combine yeast with sugar and warm water and leave fifteen minutes until it bubbles up.
  2. In a small pan, heat up milk and butter until they combine, and then turn off and leave to cool down to lukewarm.
  3. In a larger bowl, combine flour, chocolate, salt, and sugar. Add milk and butter and knead into a ball of dough as if you are making bread. Leave aside for hour to an hour and a half to rise.
  4. Flour a working surface and transfer the dough onto it. Divide in two and work (knead) each ball a little more. With a rolling pin, roll one ball into a rectangle, the thickness of a small finger. Take 4 ounces of Nutella and spread over the dough equally. Roll the dough in until you have a loaf.
  5. Repeat with the other dough ball and transfer into a baking pan.
  6. Mix the egg yolk and paint the top of each strudel. Leave aside for 30-45 minutes until it rises again.
  7. Heat oven to 390°F. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the pan, and cover with foil. Lower to 350°F, and bake 25 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave in another 5 minutes.
  8. Cool for 15-20 minutes before eating.


Please note that the preparation time does not include the time for the dough to rise.
