These delicious cinnamon rolls are really easy and quick to whip up.. Perfect for those lazy weekend breakfasts
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Line a square baking tine (preferably 8x8) with parchment paper
In a small bowl, make the filling by mixing all the sugars, spice and salt in the quantities mentioned under the heading "Filling". Keep aside
Whisk or sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt so that they are mixed evenly
Add the cubed pieces of cold butter into the dry ingredients mentioned in step 3 and use a fork or your hands to mix until it resembles a coarse mixture.
In another bowl, beat lightly - the egg, milk and vanilla. Add this to the mixture from step 4 all at once and stir it to make a soft dough
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes.
Wrap the dough in cling film and rest it in the fridge for about 15 minutes
On a well floured surface, roll the dough out to a thickness of half an inch
Brush the rolled out dough with melted butter and then sprinkle the filling (set aside in step 2) on top of the dough brushed with the melted butter
Roll one vertical side into a tight roll
Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into 1 inch thick slices
Place the slices in the prepared baking pan so that the spirals face upward. Brush the tops with the remaining melted butter
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until the top becomes a light golden brown. Serve warm
