Cinnamon Rolls with Apple Filling

A slight variation to the basic cinnamon rolls.  Cooked apples and raisins as filling. As I didn't want the rolls to be too sweet, I omit the orange glaze [mixture of icing sugar and fresh orange juice].
Verdict - nice flavour and soft, fluffy bread rolls.  The apple filling is savoury, sweet and rolls are aromatic with cinnamon flavour.  Lovely with a cup of hot tea or coffee.
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 89 with slight modifications
Apple Sauce Filling
3 green apples - peeled, cored and diced
50 gm brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cornstarch mix with 1 tbsp water
50 gm raisins - washed
  1. In a saucepan, cook apples with brown sugar until sugar dissolves and apples are soft.  Add in cinnamon powder and butter,  Stir to combine well.  
  2. Add in thickening, stir to combine.  Remove and add in raisins.
  3. Cool before using.

Bread Dough
250 gm bread flour 
50 gm plain flour
10 gm milk powder
30 gm castor sugar
1/2 an egg [keep 1/2 for glazing]
1 1/2 tsp yeast
140 ml cold water
30 gm butter
  1. Knead all ingredients [except butter] into a soft dough.  Add in butter and knead until smooth and elastic.
  2. Shape into a ball and cover to rest for 30 minutes or double in size.
  3. Punch down dough and roll out into a 15"x10" rectangle.
  4. Spread melted butter evenly over the dough, sprinkle apple cinnamon powder filling on top of the buttered area.
  5. Roll up the dough into a log.  Cut the log into 1 inch thick slices.
  6. Invert and place them in a baking ti, leaving some space in between [I place each piece on a lined tart mould].
  7. Proof until double in size [about 40 minutes] and glaze with beaten egg.
  8. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C [middle rack] for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Pip orange glaze on top [if using].
