    Serves: 24 

    • 625 g (5 cups) plain flour
    • 110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 435 ml (1 3/4 cups) milk
    • 185g (3/4 cup) butter, softened

    Prep:55min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

    1. Grease a 25-cm ring tin or tube pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray. Combine 150 g (1 1/4 cups) flour, half the caster sugar and all the salt in a bowl.
    2. Heat milk with 4 tbsp butter until lukewarm. Sprinkle on the yeast to dissolve; stir into the flour mixture. Stir in the egg. Add enough flour (at least 425 g) to work into a soft dough.
    3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead for about 10 minutes until elastic; add remaining flour to keep dough from sticking. Melt remaining butter. Mix remaining caster sugar, the brown sugar and the cinnamon in a bowl.
    4. Pull off pieces of dough the size of a golf ball, arrange in a single layer in the pan and brush with half the melted butter. Sprinkle top with half the sugar mixture. Repeat for a second layer. Cover with a damp cloth towel. Leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
    5. Preheat oven to 190°C.
    6. Bake bread for about 35 minutes or until browned on top. Stand pan on a wire rack; cool for 10 minutes; unmould and serve rolls warm.

    It was okay. I used a rectangular pan and it turned out okay, though I think it could of turned out better. I would use more cinnamon for sure.  -  16 Jul 2014


    Something else. At the end of step 4, place dough is a bowl and cover with damp towel and put in warm place to rise for approx half hour or until doubled in size, then continue to step 5 omitting instruction to allow dough to rise after assembly. This way the yeast activates better, leaving you with a yummier lighter bread.  -  08 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
