- 300g strong white bread flour
- 1tbs olive oil
- 1tsp salt
- 170ml water
- ½ tsp dried yeast (I used Allinson Easy Bake Yeast)
- 130g tub fresh pesto
- 75g cheddar cheese (grated)
- 6 sundried tomatoes in oil (drained and finely chopped)
- olive oil (for greasing the baking tin)
This is a savoury version of the cinnamon rolls I made using my bread machine. This time I made half the amount of dough as the cinnamon rolls are huge but the ingredients can be doubled to make a bigger version.
I used a closed bottom 20cm cake tin to bake the rolls in but if your tin is spring-form, wrap the outside in foil and put a baking tray on the bottom of your oven in case the filling leaks.
- Make the dough according to the instructions for your bread maker. For a Panasonic ZB2512 bread maker put the normal mixing blade into the bread pan and add the dough ingredients in the following order: flour, olive oil, salt and water. Add the yeast to the yeast dispenser.
- Select the pizza dough setting (45 minutes) then start the bread maker.
- When the dough is ready, tip it out onto a floured work surface and lightly dust the top of the dough with flour.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it’s approximately a 36cm x 30cm rectangle and around 1cm thick.
- Spread the pesto over the rectangle leaving a 2cm frame around the edges. Sprinkle over the cheese and sun-dried tomatoes.
- With the widest side of the rectangle facing you, roll the dough up as if it’s a Swiss roll and cut into seven evenly sized pieces.
- Place the pieces cut side up into an oiled 20cm round cake tin - one piece in the middle and six surrounding it.
- Cover with oiled cling film and allow to prove in a warm environment (around 30°C) until the rolls have roughly doubled in size (around 30-40 minutes).
- While the rolls are proving, preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan).
- When the rolls are ready, bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until they have risen and are golden brown on top.
- Allow to stand in the tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
