25 min + rising time
Prepare dough according to basic sweetened dough recipe and leave to rise until doubled in size. Knead dough again lightly, then roll out into a 40 x 22 cm rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, pecan nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Starting on the long side, roll up dough tightly like a Swiss roll. Cut into 9 even-sized pieces and place next to each other in a greased 20 cm square baking tin. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside to rise until doubled in size, then bake in a preheated oven at 190 ºC for 30 minutes. Heat castor sugar and cream and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour sauce over rolls as soon as they come out of the oven and allow to soak in. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before removing and placing on a wire rack to cool. Makes 9.
