From the Den Kitchen

More baking. This time Chocolate Coconut Slice from The Organised Housewife It’s a family favourite and I cook it quite often.

Another family favourite I baked last week – Cinnamon Scrolls. Can’t remember where I got the recipe from but here it is for your cooking pleasure

For the dough you will need:

  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 85 grams butter
  • 2/3 cup milk

For he filling you will need:

  • 100 grams butter
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

For the icing/glaze you will need:

  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C (180°C fan forced)
  2. Sift flour and salt, rub butter into flour until all combined then add milk and cut the mixture together with a knife.
  3. Place dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until combined.  Roll dough into a rectangle roughly 30 x 30 cms and about ½ cm thick.
  4. Cream butter and sugar for the filling, then still in the cinnamon.
  5. Spread the filling over the entire surface of the dough.
  6. Roll up the dough and cut it into 2.5 cm pieces.
  7. Place pieces onto a greased (or lined) tray, allowing enough room for them to double in size.
  8. Bake for 12 -14 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Mix icing sugar & water to make glaze. Drizzle glaze over hot scrolls.

These are best eaten warm (trust me lol)
