Here is the recipe that I use for Cinnamon Scrolls:
2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1¼ cups thickened cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon milk
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.
