    Serves: 6 

    • 250g puff pastry
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 50g light brown sugar
    • 1 tsp cocoa powder
    • icing sugar
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon + extra
    • butter for greasing
    • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:52min 

    1. Remove the pastry from the fridge 20 mins before using and pre-heat the oven to 210 degrees.
    2. Roll out the pastry into a rectangle approx 1/4 inch thick.
    3. In a bowl combine the sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla and 1 tsp icing sugar. Mix well. Add the beaten egg and mix in well. The mixture will be very sloppy.
    4. Pour enough of the mixture onto the pastry. Use a pastry brush to cover it all, don' worry if some of the mixture runs away a little.
    5. Generously dust over with icing sugar.
    6. Roll up lengthways and cut into rounds approx 1/2 cm thick.
    7. Place the rounds onto a greased baking sheet, allow for space between each swirl to spread a little. Bake in the oven for approx 12 mins or until the pastry is cooked and browned. Depending on the size of your baking sheet you may need to cook another batch.
    8. Once cooked, remove from the allow and carefully remove each swirl to cool on a wire rack.
    9. Once cooled, make up a little icing sugar mixed with cocoa and cinnamon and drizzle over the swirls. Finish off with a dusting of icing sugar.

    Easy recipe, very tasty result. I'd be interested to know though how you stop the mixture from squeezing out when slicing into rounds.  -  09 Nov 2015


    Cooked these at school with some kids. Used ready rolled puff pastry. Got very messy with the sloppy filling, but kids liked that part! Recipe needs to say that you need to lay the squidgy cut pieces flat on their sides (which is quite difficult as they are small & squidgy) onto baking tray as not doing so makes them lose the filling all over the tray & end up looking like sausage rolls!! Will know for next time!  -  20 Nov 2017
