Makes: 20-24 mini rolls

Prep time: 40 mins


2 1/2 cups flour

3 T castor sugar

1 tsp salt

7 g instant yeast

1/2 cup luke warm water

1/4 cup luke warm milk

2 T butter, melted

1 large egg

1/4 cup butter

2 T ground cinnamon

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

4 T creamed cheese


1. To make dough: In a large mixing bowl, sift flour. Add sugar, salt and yeast until evenly dispersed.

2. In a jug, mix water, milk and melted butter. Stir into the flour mixture. Add egg and knead dough until it is no longer sticky. Place in a lightly greased bowl and allow to rest for about 30 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 180°C. Roll out dough into a rectangular shape. Spread softened butter on top, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon all over the dough, tightly roll the dough and cut into about 20 small pieces. Place in a square pan and cover with plastic wrap. Leave to rise for around 15 minutes.

5. For the glaze: Mix sugar, essence, cheese and enough water to create a smooth consistency. Drizzle over the rolls.
