Yesterday I came home to two giant boxes from Amazon. They were wedding gifts from my wonderful and generous family at Scrapbook Graphics. I wanted to use a few of the gifts right away and feature them in one of these wedding gift posts to show them how very thankful I am.
We're making this.
My own invention - Mascarpone Nutella Bread. Oh baby.
From the SBG Gals, I'm using:
- Fiesta Sil-pin Silicone Rolling Pin
- iSi Silicone Scraper Spatula
- CIA Masters Collection Measuring Spoon Set
You'll also need:
- About 1 - 1.5 pounds of dough - I posted my recipe right here.
- 1 Cup Mascarpone Cheese
- Zest of one lemon
- Powdered sugar
- Flour for dusting your work surface
- Butter (to butter your bread pan)
- Microplane (to zest the lemon)
- Bread Pan
- Mixing Bowl/Mixing Utensil
First, we have to make the mascarpone filling. Dump the mascarpone into your mixing bowl, add the zest of one lemon (or less if you don't want it too lemon-y)
6 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
Stir it up.
Butter your bread pan.
Flour your work surface, shape your dough into a bowl and dump it on the counter.
Roll out a rectangle, until it's about 1/8" thick. This silicon rolling pin worked beautifully and never stuck to my dough. Old wood rolling pin, meet Goodwill!
My rectangle was about 13" wide and 18" long.
Spread a little less than half of the Mascarpone mixture onto the dough. Make another loaf tomorrow with the other half :)
And then the nutella.
Now, you have to roll it up. This is where the silicone scraper comes in so very very handy!
Look, we're all rolled up and no dough is stuck to the counter - woohoo!
Since my roll was long and skinny, I folded it in half, popped it in my buttered bread pan, and covered with plastic wrap. You have to let it rise in a non-drafty location for at least an hour or until it's doubled in size.
I brushed a little butter onto the top of the loaf. Put it into a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes before slicing. Consider adding a little more of the mascarpone mixture on top as a spread! (I did.)
