Serves: 12 Prep: 25 min (plus rising) Cook: 30 min 22p per serving
1 Dissolve a 10g sachet of yeast in 250ml warm milk in a large mixing bowl. Add 75g butter, 500g plain flour, 2 egg yolks, 75g caster sugar and a pinch of salt. Beat well until a dough is formed. Roll the dough into a ball, then put in a clean bowl. Cut a cross on top, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise until it’s doubled in size. 2 Knead dough again and roll it out into the shape of a rectangle on a counter sprinkled with flour. 3 For the filling, spread the dough with softened butter and sprinkle with 100g golden granulated sugar and cinnamon to taste, leaving a 3-4cm border on one end. Roll up the dough, ending with the side with no filling. Cut the roll into slices. 4 Arrange the slices on baking tins sprinkled with flour. Cover with a damp cloth and let dough rise for another 20 min. Bake in the oven at 180°C/ Gas 4 for 25-30 min or until done. Remove, cool and serve. Sprinkle with icing sugar and more ground cinnamon if desired.
