Nutella Cruffins

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry dough, thawed in fridge overnight
  • 3 tablespoons Nutella hazelnut spread
  • 1 egg, for egg wash
  • granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Coffee Whipped Cream

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


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and grease a muffin pan.
  • 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.
  • With an offset spatula, gently spread a thin layer of Nutella onto the surface of the dough, all the way to the edges.
  • Starting at one long end, gently roll the dough with your fingers until it becomes a spiral log. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In a small bowl, whisk up an egg for the egg wash. Use a pastry brush to gently brush cruffins with egg wash.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown and cooked through the center. Sprinkle with granulated sugar while warm.
  • 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.
