Nutella Star

In the news lately, I've heard that Australia has a Nutella shortage, so this is for all of you which have Nutella already in your pantry!
Nutella Star
I followed this Youtube video on how to make a Nutella Star:
In the video, besides the dough and the Nutella, the only equipment you need to shape this star is a dinner plate, and a sharp knife.
The video uses Pizza Base Mix for the dough, however, I used the Thermomumma's Sweet Bun Dough Recipe for the dough:
 Thermomumma's Sweet Bun Dough recipe:
  • 275 grams water, lukewarm
  • 5 teaspoons instant dried yeast
  • 550 grams white bakers flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons milk powder, optional
  • 2 teaspoons bread improver
  • 65 grams sugar
  • 45 grams soft butter
    1. Add all ingredients to your thermo bowl in order. Combine 40 seconds, speed 3. Then knead 8 minutes dough function. dough mode
    2. Transfer dough to a thermomat or oiled bowl & cover with a tea-towel. Let this sit & rest for 15 minutes before working with it.
    3. Turn dough out onto a thermomat or oiled/floured bench & punch out any gasses that may have formed.
    4. Shape/assemble to make Nutella Star (see below)
    5. Place in a nice warm moist area to prove. If you are proving in a dry heat please spray your dough with water & cover or the dough will dry out.
    6. Once grown to the desired size place (around 1 hour), in a preheated oven on 180* fan forced for 15/20 mins, or until golden brown. Place on cooling rack immediately.
    It looks quite Christmassy, however I think it looks beautiful for any occasion, or even if you feel like having some sweet bread in the house for afternoon tea!
