Mix – the night before
• In a bowl whisk your water and starter together well (if it is very cold you could add up to 50g more starter).
Combine all the flours and salt, mix with a dough whisk until all the ingredients come together into a large ball.
• Cover with cling film or a damp tea-towel and leave to prove in a cool room for 8 – 12 hours, ideally overnight.
Bake - the following morning
• Make the cinnamon butter by mixing the cinnamon, butter and sugar together to form a paste.
• Gently turn your dough out on to a dusted work surface, it is important not to stretch or manipulate the dough too much as this will knock all the air from the dough.
• Spread the cinnamon butter gently and evenly over the surface of the dough, then place the apple cubes and sultanas on top, with your hands gently roll your dough like a Swiss roll. Turn so the seam side faces down and cut your dough with your dough cutter into 7, shaping each into rolls, pinching at the base so they hold together during cooking. Try to handle the dough lightly while you shape it to ensure that the contents remain inside the roll. It doesn’t matter if pieces of apple slightly poke out of the rolls, but try to lightly pinch any exposed sultanas into the dough so they don’t catch while cooking.
• Place the rolls in the base of your cloche that has been liberally dusted with semolina – put one in the centre and the other six around the central roll to form a flower shape.
• Finish with a dusting of flour and cinnamon powder and then replace the lid of the cloche and leave on the side to rise a little more while you preheat the oven to 220C.
• Once the oven is heated, place the cloche containing the rolls into the oven and bake for 10 minutes, then turn the heat down to 190C, and bake for a further 30-35 minutes.
• Once baked and the base sounds hollow remove from the cloche and cool on a wire rack. Once cooled store your rolls in a linen or cotton bread bag or folded tea towel (if you want soft rolls put them into your bread bag while still warm).
