Cinnamon Swirls







I find that cinnamon is by far the most seasonal spice, especially at Christmas (I appologise for mentioning this word so early on in the colder months) but I wanted something to eat with my chai tea lattes. So as this is the day of the Great British Bake Off I needed a baked snack for watching, and these seemed like the perfect autumn bake, and they went down well with ma famille so I hope you enjoy trying these out!


  1. Plain flour, for dusting

  2. 1 quantity home-made puff pastry (find one that works for you, I use a mixture of 2 recipes)

  3. 75g unsalted butter, softened

  4. 75g golden caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

  5. 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  6. 60g sultanas

  7. 1 medium free-range egg, beaten with 2 tbsp milk



  1.  Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to a rectangle measuring about 30cm x 40cm.

  2. Beat together the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, then spread over the pastry. Scatter with the sultanas, then roll the rectangle from the short side to make a sausage. Chill for 10 minutes until completely firm. Then, with a serrated knife, cut into 16 x 1.5cm slices. Lay flat-side down on a baking sheet and press them slightly so they spread out a little. Chill for 20 minutes.

  3.  Brush with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 18-20 minutes until golden. Serve warm, sprinkled with sugar.

  4.   Now eat with copious amounts of chai tea lattes or just general purpose tea.
