Swoonworthy crispy layers of puff pastry and nutella in these simple and easy nutella cruffins – a cross between a croissant and a muffin!

Adapted from The Farmer’s Daughter



Nutella Cruffins

  • 1 sheet of store-bought frozen puff pastry dough, thawed in fridge overnight
  • 23 tablespoons Nutella spread
  • Egg wash: 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water, stirred together
  • Granulated sugar for sprinkling

Coffee Whipped Cream

  • 100g whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a muffin pan.
  2. Gently unroll a sheet of thawed puff pastry dough onto a floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough in one direction until it has elongated by a few inches.
  3. With an offset spatula, gently spread a thin layer of nutella onto the surface of the dough, all the way to the edges.
  4. Starting at one long end, gently roll the dough with your fingers until it becomes a spiral log. 
  5. With a knife, cut straight down the middle of the roll lengthwise. You will end up with two long strips. Then, cut each strip in half crosswise so you end up with 4 shorter pieces.
  6. With each piece of dough, cut side facing upwards, roll into a snail spiral. Tuck the end underneath itself and place into a greased muffin pan.
  7. Brush cruffins with egg wash.
  8. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown and cooked through the center. Sprinkle with granulated sugar while warm.
  9. Whisk together the whipping cream, coffee, and sugar. Transfer to a piping bag with a closed star tip and pipe dollops on top of each cruffins. Also drop a teaspoon of extra nutella onto each cruffin.
