Cinnamon scrolls or rolls is not something that is well known in Australia. Well, not as they do them in the USA.
Here you can buy coffee scrolls, or jam or apple ones too, but cinnamon seems to be more a home-baked thing you hear more about from the USA.
That’s not to say people here don’t make them, but they aren’t common. My daughter used to make them when she was in high school, but they weren’t made with yeast. More an English scone style. They were good but different.
Making Cinnamon scrolls or rolls myself
There are so many recipes for making them online. It is hard to know which one to pick. Since I’m on this sourdough kick I naturally went for a sourdough recipe. I mean why not.
The Clever Carrot had a recipe and I decided to give it a go. Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls. That is the link if you would like to try them.
They were really good and we liked them. I plan on making them again, but if I do I am going to make sure when I have them rolled up that I cut them smaller. They didn’t really fill the tin up enough I thought. Other than that they were great. Be warned the recipe for the glazing makes a lot, good, but way too much.
Once they were cooked and before I let anyone taste them I did a quick set up to take some photos. It is something I really enjoy doing now.
