    Makes: 12 cinnamon rolls

    • 180ml milk
    • 55g butter or margarine
    • 400g plain flour, divided
    • 7g quick yeast
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 60ml water
    • 1 egg
    • 220g dark brown soft sugar
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 110g butter or margarine, softened
    • 80g sultanas or raisins (optional)

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:40min rising  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 55g butter or margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine about 300g of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, about 50g at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
    3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and 110g butter or margarine.
    4. Roll out dough into a 30x23cm (12x9 in) rectangle. Spread dough with butter and sugar mixture. Sprinkle with sultanas or raisins if desired. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place in 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Serve warm.

    tried to make with GF flour- very messy! it didn't turn into a dough- just looked like a cake batter so I couldn't roll it etc-, so i had to put it in a tin.  -  18 Oct 2017


    Good recipe and results  -  30 Sep 2017


    Terrible instructions. Add the water, egg and milk mixture. Ok so I add it. Then it says beat well. Uh bit late now you just told me to add it. Maybe the author could use some common sense and say "combine the water, egg and milk mixture and beat well, once beaten add to the flower...". So I follow the instructions as best I could. There was way way way too much sugar/cinmon mixture, on rolling it all oozed out and ruined the pastry. The pasty being now wet would not cut cleanly. Essentially the entire thing is ruined due to poor instructions. Why couldn't the author mention the amount of mixture to layer on the dough and that it might oze out. I following the quantities perfectly and the suger mixture was way too much. Why couldn't the author mention what the consistency the dough should be. If this is aimed at beginners like myself it needs to be more explict in the process. This is just lazy.  -  30 Jul 2017
