All I know is that it tastes absolutely delicious, so if it comes with ANY health benefits at all, I will try to squeeze as much of that delicious stuff in to my life as humanly possible!

Here is the recipe that I use for Cinnamon Scrolls:

Ingredients:


Dough:

2 cups plain flour

2 teaspoons caster sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1¼ cups thickened cream

  

Filling:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

 

Icing:

½ cup icing sugar

1 tablespoon milk

Method:

Preheat oven to 180C.

Place flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl and add the cream and stir until just combined.

Lightly flour bench space and knead dough on floured surface until smooth (approx 30 seconds).

Roll the dough into a 20cm x 30cm rectangle.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl.

Brush the dough with melted butter then sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over dough.

Roll from longest side to form a scroll then cut into 8 equal slices and place each slice into a baking dish, then flatten slightly.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

Cool on a wire rack while you are making the icing.

In a small bowl whisk the icing sugar and milk.

Pour the icing over the scrolls and serve warm.
