INGREDIENTS
  • DOUGH
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tablespoons caster sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (optional)
  • ¼ cup milk (approx)
  • CINNAMON FILLING
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ - 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon or cassia
  • GLAZE
  • 5 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons milk or water
METHOD
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/ Gas 6. Lightly grease a 20-cm or 8-inch square pan. For the filling, in a small bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle one third of the mixture over the bottom of the prepared pan. This will make the rolls gooey.
  • For the dough, in a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and mix lightly with your fingertips till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg if using, and enough milk and knead lightly to make a soft dough.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly-floured surface into a half-cm or quarter-inch thick rectangle. Spread the remaining filling over the rolled out dough, leaving a small border all around. Carefully roll up the rectangle like a Swiss roll, beginning with the longer side. Moisten the edge and press down to seal. With a sharp knife slice the roll into 12 small rolls. Place on the baking tray, cut side up, over the sprinkled filling.
  • golden brown and the filling is gooey. In the meanwhile make the glaze: in a small bowl, combine the icing sugar and just enough water or milk to make a thin, smooth mixture.
  • Remove the rolls from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls and serve warm.
