The buns were well received by everyone in the office, even the fussy one gave his seal of approval. 😀

Ingredients

  • Rolls:
  • 350g/12oz self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g/3.5oz butter, melted and extra for greasing
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200ml/7 fl oz milk, extra for glazing
  • Filling:
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 55g/2oz brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted

 

Method

  1. Grease a 20-cm/8-inch round tin and line the bottom with baking parchment.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, caster sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Whisk the butter, egg yolks and milk together and combine the dry ingredients to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a large piece of waxed paper, lightly sprinkled with flour, and roll out to a rectangle 30 x 25cm/12 x 10 inches.
  3. To make the filling mix the ingredients together, spread evenly over the dough and roll up, Swiss-roll style to form a log. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 even-sized slices and pack into the prepared tin. Brush gently with extra milk and bake in a preheated oven, 180C/350F, for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tin.
  4. Make up some runny icing and drizzle over the swirls. Serve warm or cold.

Side note: I put extra cinnamon in the filling and gave a light dusting when they were taken out the oven.
