FOR THE ROLLS
500g Carr’s Strong White Flour
7g sachet Fast Action Dried Yeast
Yeast is a living organism which produces carbon dioxide when it ferments. This gas naturally expands the dough helping to give the loaf a good volume. It also matures and develops the dough, providing flavour through the production of complex compounds.
Fast Action Dried Yeast (Easy Blend Yeast):
A powdered yeast which generally comes in sachets and can be added straight into your cake/bread mix. Used in all our recipes for ease.
Dried Yeast (Active Dried Yeast):
Comes as granules that are added to water and sugar to activate.
Fresh Yeast (Cake or Compressed):
A solid block of yeast with a short shelf life, that is stored in the fridge and activated by adding to water and sugar.
A naturally grown yeast that takes longer to activate, but is easy to digest. See our sourdough starter recipe.
50g unsalted Butter
Vegetable Oil for greasing
FOR THE FILLING
30g melted unsalted Butter
100g Brown Sugar
10g Ground Cinnamon
FOR THE ICING
150g Icing Sugar
Fresh Lemon Juice to mix
Measure the flour into a bowl with the salt on one side and the yeast on the opposite side.
Warm the milk and butter in a pan.
Add the egg and the warm milk mixture to the flour mixture and bring together to form a dough.
Knead the dough for 5 mins until smooth and elastic.
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling film and leave to in a warm place until double in size. Approx 90mins.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knock back to original size, roll out into a rectangular shape about 1cm thick.
Brush with the melted butter, sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon all over.
Roll into a cylinder and cut into slices, place onto a round baking tin, not too tightly, cover and leave to rise for 40 mins.
