Cinnamon Scrolls

As many of you have realised by now – I’m a cinnamon addict. Particularly when it’s Christmas time. While my Sohum Christmas Gingerbread Candlette has been burning no stop, I’ve been sipping away on my Spiced Apple Cider and watching Love Actually for the gazillionth time. For me, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without cinnamon (and Hugh Grant’s classic “Jump (For My Love)” dance moves). So I figure the best way to amp up the festivities is with my warm, mouth-watering Cinnamon Scrolls. Be warned – there’s no way you can resist these beauties!


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • Combine brown sugar and cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ cups thickened cream
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. In a bowl, sift plain flour. Then add sugar, baking powder, salt and thickened cream. Stir until just combined
  3. Lightly flour bench space and knead dough on surface until smooth
  4. Roll out the dough into a rectangle
  5. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl
  6. Brush dough with melted butter
  7. Sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over dough
  8. Roll the dough from longest side to form a scroll, and then cut into 8 scrolls
  9. Place each scroll into the baking tray and bake for 20 minutes
  10. While waiting for scrolls to cool, whisk the icing sugar and milk in a small bowl
  11. Pour the icing over the scrolls and serve warm

With Christmas only days away, I hope you’re enjoying the festive season and filling your bellies to the brim! Seeing as this year’s my first Christmas away from home, my celebrations and preparations have been vastly different compared to previous years. This time around, the suspense has dropped because I know 95% of the goodies under the Christmas Tree. I’ve also already opened a handful of presents from my family during my recent trip to Perth, so my celebrations have started a tad earlier! If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, it’s buy and wrap your presents early. That way you’ll forget what you’ve bought come Christmas morning!
