    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.

    These were so tasty! A bit much filling, but everyone still loved them!  -  08 Mar 2018


    Way too much butter/cinnamon filling, went everywhere. Second attempt used half plain, half self raising flour, and spread Nutella on instead. Kneaded the dough with SR flour. Turned out magnificent (see photo if it uploads)  -  10 Feb 2018


    These turned out lovely. The cinnamon and sugar filling was just the right balance. I finished it off with a drizzle of caramel glaze. I'm giving it a 4 as the dough wouldn't form properly with the quantity stated and I had to add around 30g more flour. No big deal tho and final results were lovely  -  24 Jan 2018
