Min Cinnamon Rolls

Since I saw these cinnamon rolls at Trishie Blog  Under Lock and Key: Mini cinnamon rollsI knew I wanted to make them. I ran out of time yesterday, so this morning I made up a batch to put in zip lock bags and freeze  so we can easily pull them out on the weekend. They just smelt heavenly as the were cooking.

Mini cinnamon rolls

2 cups self raising flour
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 teaspoon salt
25g melted butter
1/2 cup milk

25g melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 cup soft icing sugar


1. Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F). Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin tray.

2. To make the dough, mix flour, sugar, salt and butter. Add milk, and use hands to knead into a soft dough.

3. Place dough on lightly floured surface and roll out into a rectangle about 0.5 cm thick.

4. Brush with butter, then sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon evenly.

5. Roll the dough, starting witht the longer end and use a sharp knife to cut into 1.5cm pieces.

6. Place in prepared muffin tray (this helps the rolls keep its sharp while cooking). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
7. For icing, whisk together syrup, milk and icing sugar, making sure there is no lumps. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls while hot before serving.

I didn't even make the icing, forgot to, but they still tasted great.
