Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are one of my childhood favs! We would have them every Christmas morning and I have continued the tradition with my kids.


1 portion of white bread dough

100g melted butter

1/2 cup Brown sugar with 2 tsp cinnamon


Prepare the basic white bread recipe.

Once the dough has risen the first time , roll the dough into a 2 cm thick rectangle shape and spread with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Roll the long side into a log, then cut pinwheels to form the cinnamon rolls.

Place in Texan Muffin tins and let rise second time.

Cook in 180c oven for 30 mins


Basic Pizza dough


  • A Sachet of active yeast,
  • 300 ml of lukewarm water,
  • 2 tsp sugar,
  • 1 tsp sea salt,
  • 2 Tbsp of olive oil,
  • 350-400 g of pizza flour


  1.  Dissolve sugar in warm water, then sprinkle yeast in and gently stir.
  2.  Place yeast mixture in the bowl of a mixer, add olive oil and salt.
  3.  Slowly add the flour using the basic mixer attachment at first. Continue to add flour until the mixture gets too heavy for the basic mixer attachment then switch to the dough attachment. Continue to mix in the flour until the dough is smooth and elastic. This takes approx 10 mins and let the dough be a little more wet than a bread dough. It can take practice to get get the right consistency, but don’t worry. Practice makes perfect.
  4.  Form the dough into a ball then place it into an oiled bowl.Cover it and let it rise until doubled in size, about 45 mins.
  5. While the dough is rising, pre heat oven to 200 C. A hot oven is good so if you can go even higher to 220 C.
  6.  Once the dough has risen, divide the dough and roll each out thinly on a floured board.
  7.  Add sauce and your favourite toppings
  8.  Bake in the middle of the oven until crust golden colour.
