Valentine’s Day:

We made Valentine’s Day cinnamon bread:

  • melt 75g butter into 250ml milk;
  • pour into a mixture of 400g flour, pinch salt, 3-4g dried yeast and 50g sugar.
  • Knead for 10 mins.
  • The filling is 35g warmed butter, 1tbsp cinnamon and 35g brown sugar.
  • Roll out bread dough and spread filling over it.
  • Roll up from the two long edges and then pinch the middle to make a heart shape.
  • Cut into thick slices and leave to prove in a warm place for 20 mins, then bake at 200^C for 8 mins.
