About the bake

We're a big fan of these Pinwheels. Not only do they look impressive, but they're a doddle to make. These are perfect for sharing and make an ideal movie night addition if you've got a group of friends coming over.

  1. Step 1:

    Fry together the sunflower oil, onion and sesame seeds for 5 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Step 2:

    Put the flour into a bowl and rub in the butter. Stir in the sugar and salt and sprinkle on the yeast.

  3. Step 3:

    Mix to a soft dough with the milk and egg. Then knead on a floured board for 10 minutes. Alternatively you could place all of the dough ingredients into a mixer with a dough hook attached and knead for 5 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    Roll the dough into a rectangle, sprinkle over the fried ingredients and the parmesan and roll up like a Swiss Roll.

  5. Step 5:

    Cut into 12 slices and place onto a greased baking sheet. Add the toppings and leave until double the size. Preheat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C/gas mark 5).

  6. Step 6:

    Bake for 20 minutes.
