50g white sugar
6g instant dried yeast

50g brown sugar
1½ tsp cinnamon ground

Combine butter, milk and yoghurt. Heat to 30degC.

Combine plain flour, white sugar, yeast, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl and attach dough hook to mixer.

Add wet mix to dry mix and mix on med-low for 20 minutes.

Lightly cover and keep in a warm place until doubled in size.

Add filling ingredients to food processor and lightly pulse to combine. Set aside.

Once dough has doubled. Punch down and roll into a long rectangle approximately 30cm by 15cm.

Spread apple mix over dough, leaving a 1cm gap at the bottom.

Roll dough towards the gap pinching the roll closed when it reaches the end to seal in filling.

Lightly cover and keep in a warm place until doubled in size.

Allow to cool 10 minutes before removing from tin.
