About this recipe: I recently adapted a recipe for savoury pinwheels into a sweet version using Nutella and coconut. The pastry is super simple to make. They are even sweeter with a little icing drizzled over the top.


Serves: 12 

  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 4 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 125ml milk
  • 3-4 tablespoons Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 1 tablespoon dessicated coconut
  • milk to glaze

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:27min 

  1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6 and line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Process flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor until it resembles fresh breadcrumbs.
  3. Add 125ml milk until combined and turn out onto a floured surface. Shape into a rectangle and roll out to approximately 25 x 40cm.
  4. Spread the pastry with Nutella and sprinkle coconut over it.
  5. Roll into a log shape and refrigerate 15 minutes.
  6. Cut into 1-2cm slices and place swirl side down onto baking tray.
  7. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle a little extra coconut on top.
  8. Bake 12 minutes or until golden. Cool and if desired, drizzle icing over the top.
