  2. Brush some milk onto the surface of the dough and spread the cinnamon filling leaving 1 inch of the edge of the dough clear.
  3. Using the parchment paper roll out the dough away from you using the long edge of the dough that is closest to you.
  4. Using a sharp knife cut the roll into 8 pieces
  5. Place the rolls in a well-greased 8” cake tin and leave to prove for 45 mins to 1hr.
