Same Day Sourdough Chocolate Knots with Nutella

These sourdough chocolate knots with Nutella are a hybrid of your classic sourdough chocolate rolls and Swedish cardamom knots, without the complex steps.

Perfect for those who appreciate the simplicity but crave a proper homemade chocolatey treat!


For Sweet Stiff Starter – all-purpose flour – water – soudough starter – sugar

Combine the bread flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, milk, salt, eggs, butter, and (sweet) active sourdough starter in a bowl of a stand mixer.


Cover the dough with a lid, plastic wrap, or a damp towel and let it sit in a warm spot for bulk fermentation.


On a floured surface, roll the dough into a thin rectangle. Spread approximately 6 tablespoons of Nutella over half of the dough, then fold the other half over.


Use a pizza wheel, a bench scraper, or a sharp knife to cut the dough into 28 strips. Swirl each strip into a knot, tucking the end underneath.


Place the knots on a piece of parchment paper or a baking mat. Cover them with a damp tea towel and let them rise in a warm spot until they become a bit puffy, which should take about 3-5 hours.
