Equipment Required

  • Weighing scales

  • Pastry brush

  • Large & small mixing bowl

  • Rolling pin

  • Measuring jug

  • Sharp knife

  • Dessert spoon

  • Baking sheet

  • Rubber spatula

  • Baking paper

  • Pastry/chopping board

  • Oven gloves


  • Canola spray

  • 300g self-raising flour

  • 90g cold butter cut into cubes

  • 150ml milk

  • 70g butter at room temperature

  • 50g brown sugar

  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped finely

  • ¼ cup sultanas (optional)

  • 150g icing sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  • 3 tablespoons hot water


  • Pre-heat oven to 210°C.

  • Lightly spray a 20cm round or square cake tin with canola oil.

  • Combine flour and cold butter cubes in a bowl. 

  • Use your finger tips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  • Add the milk and carefully blend all the ingredients together using a rubber spatula. 

  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.  If the mixture is too sticky add a little more flour.

  • Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the dough into a 30 x 40cm rectangle.

  • Place the room temperature butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix until smooth and creamy.

  • Spread the cinnamon butter mixture all over the dough leaving a 2cm border around the edge.

  • Sprinkle over the chopped apple and sultanas.

  • Starting from the long side, roll the dough firmly to form a log.

  • Brush the edge with a little extra milk and press down firmly to seal the log.

  • Cut crossways into 10 equal slices about 5cm thick.

  • Place scrolls cut side up into the baking tin allowing them to touch one another as this will help them to rise.

  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and allow to cool slightly in the tin.

  • Mix the icing sugar, vanilla essence and hot water together to form a smooth icing and drizzle over the scrolls.

  • Enjoy!
