Chocolate coconut Rolls

Today my recipe is "Chocolate coconut Rolls". When I decided to do the marathon under bread baking I started hunting for recipes. When I came across this recipe, I thought it was so complicated but the coconut and chocolate tempted  me to try this. But then I realized it is very easy to make. As I will be baking few more breads, I tried only a very small batch but the recipe can be doubled if required. 

All purpose flour, 2 cups
Active dry yeast, 1 tsp
Milk, 1/2 cup,
Sugar, 2 Tbs
Butter, 2 Tbs
Egg, 1 No.
Nutella spread,  5 Tbs
Shredded coconut, 1/2 cup
Salt, 1/4 tsp
Chocolate syrup, to drizzle on top

  1. In a bowl combine one cup of flour and yeast and set aside.
  2. In a sauce pan, heat and stir together milk, sugar, salt, and butter until warm and the butter is melted.
  3. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and mix well. Add a lightly beaten egg to this and add the other cup of flour little by little to this and keep kneading till they are all incorporated into a soft dough. If the dough is dry add a little water ( may be 1 Tbs at a time) and keep kneading till u get the soft dough.
  4. Cover the kneaded dough and let it rise for 1 hour and turn it the other side and let it rise for another half an hour.
  5. Roll out the dough into a rectangle of about 1/4 " thickness and spread the hazelnut spread over the dough leaving one inch in one long side of the dough. Then sprinkle coconut on top of this.
  6. Then roll up the rectangle  from the long side where fillings are spread to the edge and pinch the dough to seal seams.
  7. Slice the rolled dough uniformly (about 12 slices) and arrange them in the greased baking tray almost 2" apart,cover them and let it rise for 45 minutes.
  8. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool and drizzle chocolate syrup on top and serve.
