  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 2tbsp caster sugar
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100g butter, melted

  • 200ml milk


  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon

  • 60g of icing sugar
  • ½ tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp of boiling water


Step 1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Grease a 20cm baking tray or cake tin and line the bottom with baking parchment

Step 2. Mix the flour, caster sugar and cinnamon together with a pinch of salt in a bowl. Then whisk the melted butter, egg yolks and milk together and add them to the dry ingredients to make a soft dough. Pop the dough onto a floured surface and roll out to a rectangle, approx 30x25cm

Step 4. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 even-sized slices and put onto the prepared tin. Brush gently with a bit of extra milk and bake for 30-35 mins or until golden brown

Step 5. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 mins before removing from the tin

Step 6. Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl and 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 extract, then drizzle the icing over the rolls. Serve warm or cold – for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
