Ingredients

  • Rolls:
  • 350g/12oz self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2tbsp caster sugar
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g/3.5oz butter, melted and extra for greasing
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200ml/7 fl oz milk, extra for glazing
  • Filling:
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 55g/2oz brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • Icing:
  • 125g/4.5 oz icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • about 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

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. Sift icing sugar into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Place the cream cheese and butter in the centre, pour over the water and stir to mix. Add extra boiling water, a few drops at a time, until the frosting coats the back of a spoon. Stir in the vanilla essence, then drizzle the icing over the rolls. Serve warm or cold.
