Okay, I know that this might sound strange.. a sweet flavoured spring roll, but it does taste very good indeed. I can’t help it,… for some reason, I’ve been always wanting to do a sweet spring roll – well at least to give it a try..  I used to make a bulk lots of chicken spring rolls ,or beancurd wraps with grandma when I was a kid, and not forgot mentioning my other invention recipe! It’s fun folding spring rolls and you will never get bored of it! It’s a fun activity and taste real good! Ever since I’ve made a first spring roll, I love it! Ever since, every time I make spring rolls, it reminds me of grandma.. It’s a Nostalgia of my home, my town…

The last few days making these sweet spring rolls, that memory came back again. Although this is a new test, but every time I fold the pastry, it’s very memorable. I miss my grandma! Just a note, if you love pastry goodies as much as I do, I’ll highly recommend you to check this out!

So out of the emotional thoughts, this recipe was really a success for me! Someone like me who has an addictive sweet tooth but also wanting to lose weight at the same time (oh yes, like all girls~), this treats is another great excuse for me!  Nutella is always my best friend since young! I remembered loving to scoop Nutella with a metal spoon and right into my mouth, just to stop my chocolate craving! Now that I’ve added some fruits, again ~ it sorta sooth my inner devil~ (well, at least it’s something healthy! *bad girl* )

How to?

  1. Preheat oven to 120°C.
  2. Lay 2 sheet of parchment paper onto a baking tray.
  3. Cut fillo pastry into 6 equal rectangles. Repeat with the rest of the pastry.
  4. Lightly brush a thin layer of butter onto a pastry and sandwich the second sheet of pastry on top (just like gluing 2 piece of paper together).
  5. Use a teaspoon, fill a teaspoon of Nutella in the middle of the pastry and then add your desired fruit.
  6. Fold the side into the middle and roll forward (from the end) just like how you roll a spring roll. Brush a little butter to the end so it sticks.
  7. Evenly lay spring rolls on top of the parchment paper with the sealed edge facing down.
  8. Brush a thin layer of egg wash to the top of each spring roll.
  9. Bake in the oven (in the middle tray) for 5 minutes or until the spring rolls turn gold brown.
  10. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.

Tips:

  • Don’t be greedy, only add a small amount of Nutella and fruit, too much will burst and break the Fillo pastry.
  • If 2 layers of Fillo is still too thin, do 3 layers, however, you will need to bake a little longer and make taste “thick”. Try to practice with 2 layers if possible.
