  • 110g butter, melted
  • 450ml warm milk
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 650g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 packet active dry yeast


  • 150g butter, softened
  • 160g brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon


  • 30g butter, softened
  • 120g cream cheese
  • 130g icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract/essence


  1. Butter a pie dish and set aside.

  2. Whisk the melted butter, warm milk and granulated sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Sprinkle over the yeast and leave it for 1 minute to set.

  3. Add 500g of the plain flour and combine. Cover and rise for 1 hour in a warm place. While proving make the filling by mixing together all the ingredients, and do the same for the frosting. Set both aside.

  4. Once proved for an hour add the rest of the flour, salt and baking powder and combine.

  5. Knead on a very well floured surface till it comes together, then roll into an inch thick rectangle about 20cm x 30cm

  6. Spread the filling mixture over the dough and roll into a log. Cut into 1.5 inch slices and place in the buttered pie dish with one in the centre and the others around it. Cover and rise for 30 minutes somewhere warm.

  7. Preheat oven to 180°C, and bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes. Place a tray on the rack below to make for easier clean up incase the filling leaks.

  8. Once baked, remove from the oven and pour over the frosting mix you set aside earlier. Serve and enjoy while still warm.
