  • 300 g Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 70 g Butter Melted Plus Extra For Greasing
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 130 ml Milk plus extra for glazing

For the Filling

  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 55 g Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 40 g Butter Melted

For the Icing

  • 60 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ½ tbsp Butter Softened
  • ½  tsp vanilla essence


  • Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Grease a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin and line the bottom with baking parchment. Mix the flour, caster sugar and cinnamon together with a pinch of salt in a bowl. Whisk the butter, egg yolks and milk together and combine with the dry ingredients to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to a rectangle, about 30 x 25cm.
  • Mix the filling ingredients together. Spread evenly over the dough then roll it up lengthways, like a Swiss roll, 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 for 30-35 mins or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 mins before removing from the tin.
  • Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Place the cream cheese and butter in the centre, pour over 2 tbsp boiling water, and stir to mix. Add a little more water until you have a drizzly consistency. Stir in the vanilla essence, then drizzle the icing over the rolls. Serve warm or cold.
