Ingredients

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 60g butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons instant dried yeast

Cinnamon Filling

  • 45g butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Coffee Icing

  • 80g cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
  • 1 teaspoon boiling water

Instructions

  1. Add to the bowl of a stand mixer the bread flour, water, white sugar, butter and yeast. Knead using the dough hook attachment for 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.

  4. Spread the extra butter over the dough and sprinkle over the cinnamon and brown sugar. Rolls into a log.
  5. Cut the log into 12 equal pieces and place on a lined baking tray. Cover with clong wrap and sit in a warm spot for around 30 minutes or until risen to your desired size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180c fan forced. Bake the scrolls for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a wire cooling rack. Allow to cool slightly.
  7. To make the icing, beat the cream cheese in a stand mixer until pale and creamy. Dissolve the instant coffee in the boiling water and add to the stand mixer along with the icing sugar. Beat until fluffy.
  8. Spread over the scrolls while still slightly warm and top with a walnut half.
