Place apple mixture in the centre of the sheet leaving 2cm border around the edge. Now cover it with one side of the sheet. Apply egg yolk and from the apple-covered side carefully roll into a cylinder using the non-stick baking paper below.
Place, seam side down along with baking paper on the baking tray. Tuck the ends under the roll. Brush with remaining egg yolk. Create cuts on the top of the roll about 2cm-long and 2cm apart. Bake until golden and cooked through (40 minutes). Let it rest for 10 minutes, slice and dust with icing sugar.
