We are having Homemade Apple Rolls for warm breakfast food in our home. I like to make them from scratch.
As with yeast, for this Homemade Apple Roll, you will need to plan ahead but it's so worth it. The apple filling can be well prepared a day before and keep refrigerated. It is cooked using microwave but could be done on stove top by combining all the filling ingredients, let cook for 10 minutes with constant stirring. Leave to cool completely before use.
Unlike regular rolls, these rolls are baked as a log then equally slice after baking.
This dough works up beautifully, it is easy to do and they are so good.
