Prep 0 h : 0 m
Cook 0 h : 40 m


  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour

    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

    1 tsp salt

    50g cold butter, coarsely chopped

    180ml buttermilk

    60g butter, extra, softened

    ¼ cup (55g) caster sugar

    2 tsp ground cinnamon

    Cooking oil spray


    ½ cup (80g) icing sugar

    1 tbsp milk


  • Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a bowl; rub in chopped butter with your fingertips. Add enough buttermilk to mix to a soft, sticky dough. Turn onto a floured work surface; knead lightly until smooth. Roll out into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Lightly grease and preheat a 4-hole (80ml) pie maker. Cut 12 x 5.5cm rounds from baking paper. Line holes with baking paper rounds. Spread dough with extra butter; sprinkle with combined sugar and cinnamon (leaving a 2cm border along the top long edge). Spray border with oil spray. Roll dough tightly from the long edge nearest you; pinch seam to seal. Using a serrated knife, trim the ends. Cut roll into 12 x 3cm thick, slices.

    Place scrolls, cut-side down, into prepared holes; spray with oil. Close lid; cook for 8 mins until risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat in batches with remaining scrolls; wipe holes clean with paper towel as needed and reline with baking paper rounds.

    Icing: Whisk sifted icing sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth and runny. Dip scrolls into icing, place on a baking-paper-covered wire rack. Stand until set before serving.
