Swedish cinnamon rolls

Who doesn't like cinnamon rolls? There's not a moment in the day when I don't fancy one. This recipe is Nigella's and as all her recipes its quite easy to make and you'll be very pleased with the results. When the rolls are in the oven, your place will smell like heaven...


For the dough:

600g plain flour

100g sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

21g of dried yeast or 45g fresh yeast

100g melted butter

400ml milk

2 eggs

For the filling:

150g softened butter
150 sugar

1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 egg beaten

For the glaze:

1 cup icing sugar

splash of water


You need a 33cm x 24cm square cake tin, or you can make them separate in an oven tray. Preheat oven to200degrees. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl. Mix the butter with the milk and eggs. Mix with your hands or in the mixer using the dough hook, until smooth and springy. Form a ball and place it in a oiled bowl, cover and let it rise for 30 minutes or more.

Form a rectangle with the dough, you may need more flour for the mixture to become less sticky, mix the ingredients for the cinnamon butter and spread it all over the surface of the rectangle, roll it until you have a sausage. Cut it into 2 cms slices and placethem in the baking tray, keep them some centimetres apart from one another, let them rise again, brush them with the egg and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

You can also try to make them stuck to one another in a cake tin, or in an oven dish, like in the photos above, let them rise for haf an hour or 45 minutes and bake them, 20 minutes or until a skewer comes away clean.

Once they are baked, transfer them to a cooling rack, let them cool and mix the ingredients for the glaze until it becomes a runny but sticky mixture and GLAZE!
