Roulette Cinnamon Roll

I have once made this with yam paste fillings which I love very much, but not easy to please everyone though especially my son. Since I love to explore new things, so I think I should try this out with their favourite flavour....cinnamon and chocolate! Phew..... no jokes, my son is the first person came in to ask for the bread. He said the aroma has dragged him over and he had two slices in one shot! By the way, this is an easy hand knead recipe. So, enjoy and have fun!

Sponge :
1-1/2 cup warmed milk
1 tbsp sugar
3 tspn yeast
1 cup bread flour/high protein flour

- combine all ingredients and mix well, leave to proof for 1/2 hour.

Ingredients for dough :
2 cups bread flour
2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cups sugar
1 tspn salt
4 tbsp butter, softened

* cinnamon mixture : 1 tbsp cinnamon powder + 1/3 cup brown sugar
* extra butter for spreading
* egg yolk for glazing
* 100gm white chocolate for ganaching.
* roasted almond flakes for ganaching. (optional)

Method :

- combine flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- stir in the sponge and mix till it formed a soft dough.
- add in butter and starts kneading the dough untill smooth.
- then leave to rest for an hour.
- press out the air and knead for another 5 mins.
- roll the dough out flat in rectangle shape.



- spread on the butter and then top with cinnamon mixture.
- roll the dough like swiss roll about 1/3 of the dough.



- cut the base dough in stripes and then continue rolling the dough.
- join both end together and place dough to baking tray.
- and leave to proof for 45mins.

Finally, brush on egg glaze and bake at 190'c for 20-25 mins.

Now melt the chocolate and drizzle over the bread once it's cool. And serve!

Then I have to stop them from touching the breads cause these are for tomorrow breakfast. hehe...

Divina Pe said...

that's a beautiful cinnamon bread. You are truly very good in what you do. :)

Lyndsey said...

There is nothing like the smell of cinnamon baking in the oven mmm... You are really going to get me to actually bake something other than cookies. My daughter loves cinnamon too. I do have next week off for spring break and all my family is out of town back home.

What is high protein flour? Bread flour? high gluten? or is it just labeled high protein?

My Little Space said...

Good evening ladies,

Glad that you like this yummy bread as well. Cinnamon is an easy going spice, almost everyone loves it! So, enjoy!

Have a wonderful day.

Regards,
Kristy

Thanks Kristy, that flour link really helped. I think I can use bread flour and it should work fine.
