Nutella And Orange Brioches

This Nutella And Orange Brioches is an invention of my Mom, the first time she used two different jams to fill the sausages that make the flower and it was really delicious. Then she decided to prepare it for us by stuffing it with Nutella (she doesn’t like Nutella …) and I assure you that she made this Nutella Brioches really something too greedy. It finished in a very short time considering its size, every time we entered the kitchen we went out with a piece in hand!

Nutella goes really well with the orange taste of the pasta, and having prepared it with a little less sugar, it remains well balanced without becoming cloying given the sweetness of the filling. The dough is light and soft, you can slice it or you can detach the salami as if you were removing the petals of a flower because the brioches is made up of many small individually filled brioches and then arranged in the pan to form a rose.

Excellent as a snack or for breakfast dipped in hot milk. Obviously you can replace Nutella with other spreads, perhaps with pistachio cream, jams, lemoncurd, or with a fruit compote such as blueberries and a little cream cheese. You can really indulge yourself with what you like best!
