Cinnamon Swirls

Holiday season is upon us.If you love baking,this is the best time to make something special for your friends and family.I love to smell cinnamon aroma after baked.The flavor and aroma make the house smell good,right?.This is my first time baking Cinnamon Swirls .Actually,baking Cinnamon Swirl is quite simple and easy but anyway I forget to add in raisin on to my dough when I roll it up..Here is my simple Cinnamon Swirl


1 1/2 cup bread flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp butter,cut small pieces,plus extra for greasing

1 tsp active dry yeast

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

For Filling:

4 tbsp butter

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 brown sugar

1/2 cup raisin

For Glazing:

2 tsp butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbsp water


1: Grease baking sheet with little butter.Sift flour and salt into mixing bowl.Stir in yeast.Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.Add the egg and milk to form a dough.

2:Form dough into a ball,place in a greased bowl.cover and let stand in a warm place for about 30 minutes or until doubled in size.

3:Punch down the dough lightly for 1 minutes,then roll out to a rectangle measuring 12 x 9 inches.

4:To make the filling ,cream together the softened butter,Cinnamon and brown sugar until light and fluffy.Spread the filling evenly over the dough rectangle,leaving a 1 inch border all around.Sprinkle raisin evenly over the top.

5:Roll up the roll from one of the longest edges and press down to seal.Cut the roll into 12 slices.Place them,cut-side down ,on the baking sheet,cover and let stand for 30 minutes to proof.

6:Preheat oven to 375 F.Bake the buns for 20-30 minutes,or until well risen.

7:Meanwhile use sauce pot to cook sugar ,butter and water for glaze.Brush the cooked glaze on the buns and let it cool slightly before serving.

You can use ready made maple syrup as glazing instead if you refused to make your own glaze.

Wow, your blog has loads of beautiful pictures of food. You cook very well. I love cinammon too but too bad, my other half is alergic to it so I never try baking things with it. I will usually replace it with mixed spices which somehow gives nearly the same kind of taste.

I was thinking of baking this and you put up your recipe :) Carlos always like cinnamon rolls and I prefer to bake it myself as its not as sweet as the store bought ones. I like the way you roll it up. Its so well done.

Nicely done! I don't buy this at the store as it's always very sweet and packed with icing sugar. Homemade one adjust to our preference sure is a nice choice.
