    Step 1

    Make the Dough:
    Place the water in a small bowl and sprinkle over the yeast and 5g caster sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes.

    Put the 4 cups of flour, salt and the remaining 55g caster sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the yeast mixture and mix briefly on medium speed to combine. Add 8 of the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Replace the paddle with a dough hook.

    Gradually add the pieces of butter, a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Beat on medium for about 10 minutes. Add a little more flour (up to 1/2 a cup, but no more) if the dough is really sticky and hard to manage. It should be smooth and shiny.

    Grease a large bowl with butter and put the dough in it. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to double in bulk for about 1 1/2 hours.

    Punch the dough down and knead it briefly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate it overnight.

    Divide the dough into two equal portions.

    Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. and butter a 20cm cake pan. Set aside.

    Take one portion of the dough. Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out to a 45cm x 25cm rectangle. Sprinkle the dough with the cinnamon mixture and, taking one of the longer edges, roll to enclose the filling. Cut the dough into 10 even pieces. Place the scrolls side by side in the prepared cake pan. Cover with a damp cloth and leave for about an hour to puff up and double in size.

    Brush the dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Bake for 15 minutes, then lightly cover with foil and bake for a further 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
