How to Make:

  1. Place yeast, sugar and warm water in a jug. Whisk with a fork until yeast has dissolved. Stand in a warm place for 10 minutes or until frothy.
  2. Sift flour and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in salt, yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough for 10 to 15 minutes, kneading in fruit for the last 2 minutes of kneading time. Place in a large, lightly greased bowl. Cover and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced.
  4. Grease 2 baking trays well with olive oil cooking spray or olive oil. Divide dough into 12 portions. Roll each portion into 12cm logs. Place, 5cm apart, on prepared trays.
