2nd post as I promised...:p
Quite a simple one which I found from a recipe book I got last few weeks, "tea time treats from Chef Wan".
Don't really remember when I had a cinnamon roll but this sweet dough is always my favourite. It really goes well with my favourite long black. Yummy!
Ingredients for Puff pastry:
300g plain flour
1 tsp salt
70g vegetable shortening
4-6 tbsps cold water
~ In a bowl, sift together the flour and salt.
~ Add in the butter and shortening and mix well with a fork.
~ Slowly pour in the cold water and mix into a soft dough.
~ Wrap with cling film and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Ingredients for the filling:
1 tbsp butter (melted)
50g castor sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
~ Preheat the oven to 200'C. Prepare the tray with baking papers.
~ In a bowl, mix together sugar and ground cinnamon together.
~ Roll out the child pastry into a 25x35cm sheet, 1 cm thick. Repeat this rolling for few times.
~ Spread the cinnamon mixture all over the pastry sheet. Sprinkle with raisins.
~ Roll the pastry up from one side until the whole sheet is rolled up like a swissroll.
~ Cut the roll into 2.5cm thick slices.
~ Arrange on baking tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Cool and serve with maple syrup.
A good alternative to the layered pastry is puff pastry. You can buy prepared puff pastry from the supermarket.
The outcome is satisfying, light and crunchy. I really enjoy them over the afternoon tea.
