Recipe: Baby Cinnamon Sticky Rolls

I had a craving for Simply Bread’s Sticky Bun.. Everyone who grew up in the west or studied around there would have known Guthrie House and definitely tried Simply Bread’s famous Sticky Bun made up of cinnamon, brown sugar and soft bread. Major yums :) Anyway I decided to attempt to make it and it turned out better than expected! Though of course a far cry from Simply Bread’s because my pastry was crisp instead of soft so I guess that gave it a different twist.  Could not really find a single recipe I liked so I combined a couple I found online and made this my own! So here it goes :)

Ingredients:

(Makes 24 small rolls)

To make your own dough:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ cup heavy cream

OR

2 sheets of puff pastry sheets, each sheet cut into 2 pieces

For the filling:
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 ¼ tsp. cinnamon
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature

(If you choose not to make your own dough, you can ignore the first 4 ingredients and simply use ready made puff pastry, I did one batch of my own dough and used the puff pastry for the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture)

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar and cinnamon. Set that aside.

Smear softened butter all over the surface of the dough. Sprinkle the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture evenly over the butter. Starting at one end, roll the dough up into a tight spiral.

I had cut each pastry sheet into 2 and each sheet can make 6 rolls

To make the rolls ‘sticky’, combine 3 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons brown sugar, mix well. Divide this mixture between the bottom of each of the muffin cups in your tin. Place each roll that you had cut earlier, spiral side up, into a muffin cup.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the sticky buns are golden brown

Leave the rolls in the tin to cool then scoop them out gently. The brown sugar/butter makes an amazing glaze that holds the roll together :)

One of my best tries yet :)

  1. How clever to bake them… all looks so crispy and delicious.

  2. […] only difference between the last recipe here: http://gninethree.wordpress.com/2011/02/17/baby-cinnamon-sticky-rolls/ and the one I did this time were the added nuts/raisins so they were kinda fatter when I rolled […]
