HOW TO DO IT
1. Mix all the yeast mixture ingredients together and leave in a warm place for 20 mins or until frothy.
2. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine crumbs. Add the egg to the yeast mixture, mix well then add to the crumbs. Knead the dough for about 10 mins until smooth. Cover with cling film and leave to rise until doubled in size.
3. Roll the dough out on to a floured surface to form a 1cm thick rectangle. Sprinkle over the chocolate chips, sugar and cinnamon and roll into a sausage.
