How to Make Cinnamon Swirls.

Introduction: How to Make Cinnamon Swirls.

About: My first reaction to needing something is to make one. It's a self-reliance thing - so, of course, the house is full of half finished junk :-)

Knock-up a 1lb plain white bread dough that has a 1/4 Semolina and one egg.
After the initial rising, roll-out the dough to approximately 18" X 12". Brush with melted butter or spread that has a few drops of vanilla in it.
Sprinkle with a level
dessert spoon of Cinnamon, one tbs of brown sugar and a small hand-full of Sultanas (optional).
Roll lengthways and cut into eight slices.
Place evenly in an oiled, sided roasting tin, brush with more melted butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Leave in a warm place to rise to double their size.

Bake at gas mark 4 for 20 mins or until golden brown.

    Looks delicious! Do you eat them as is, or add an icing?

    Hi, Scoochmaroo. Thanks for the kind comment. I've been meaning to try icing them - next time:-) The one thing I want to try is rough, chunky sugar crystals but I'm having trouble finding it locally.
