Instructions

  2. Dust a surface with the extra 10g flour, then scrape the dough out onto it; knead for 5 minutes until smooth. Mist the bowl with cooking spray and return the dough to it. Cover and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled in size. Tip out onto the floured surface, knock out the air and roll out to a 25cm x 35cm rectangle.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Use a hand-held electric whisk to beat together the spread, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a bowl until combined, then set aside.
  4. Grease and line 2 x 20cm round cake tins with baking paper. Spread the filling over the dough, then scatter over the raisins. Starting from a long edge, roll the dough up tightly like a swiss roll. Cut into 12 slices and arrange, cut-side up, in the prepared tins. Cover and leave to rise for 20-30 minutes.
