    Heston's cinnamon rolls

    • Vegetarian

    Makes: 9


    120g whole milk, warm
    25g caster sugar
    1 tsp dried yeast
    30g unsalted butter
    ½ Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg yolk
    ½ tsp vanilla extract
    210g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
    Pinch of salt

    80g softened butter
    100g granulated sugar
    6g (1 tsp) ground cinnamon
    2 tbsp sultanas

    Melted butter for greasing
    50g white chocolate, melted, to decorate
    Heston from Waitrose Popping Candy, to decorate


    1. To make the dough, place the warm milk in a bowl with the sugar and yeast. Allow to stand for 5 minutes, before adding the butter, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir to combine. Place the flour and pinch of salt into a large bowl, pour in the milk mixture and, using a spatula, mix together until well combined.

    2. Using a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, knead the dough for 7-8 minutes, or until soft and sticky to the touch. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with kitchen film. Allow to stand at room temperature for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Using the palm of your hand press down on the surface of the dough to release the gases formed during fermentation and shape into a ball. Place the dough back into the bowl, cover and place in the fridge to prove for 4 hours.

    3. To make the cinnamon butter, place the butter, sugar and cinnamon into a bowl, and whisk until combined. Add the sultanas and mix. Set aside.
