The Great British Bake Off has returned to our TVs *woop* and after watching this weeks bread related episode I was inspired to make some dough of my own! Having a sweet tooth I opted for something a little naughty and these Chocolate and Cinnamon Swirls and seriously gooey and taste delicious - a tempting treat.
I'm not keen on spending hours waiting for dough to rise so this is quite a quick recipe too where only one prove is required!
50g Caster sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
170g Brown sugar
120g Chocolate (we used Lindt)
1 tbsp Cinnamon
Pre-heat the over to 180 degrees.
Gently heat the milk and butter together in a pan until the butter has melted then set aside to cool slightly.
Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Pour in the milk and butter mixture and mix thoroughly to form a soft dough, adding the water a little at a time as required.
Put the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until smooth.
Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with a damp towel. Leave it to rise for around 40 minutes until springy to the touch then roll out to 12" by 9" in size.
In a bowl mix together the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon then spread it across the dough evenly.
Sprinkle the chocolate over the top and then roll it up into a log shape.
Slice into 12-15 pieces and place on a baking tray, cut side up, and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
A nice alternative to chocolate is raisins then a drizzle of icing on top!
