Ingredients

For the dough
  • 125 g Stork baking block
  • 300 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 700 g strong flour
  • 1 packet dry yeast
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg
For the filling
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 125 g cranberries
  • 50 g chopped almonds
  • 1 medium egg
  • 60 g crystal sugar or demerara sugar

      Instructions

      1. Melt the Stork in a pan over a low heat. Add milk and heat until lukewarm. Place 650g of the flour in a mixing bowl with the yeast and mix well. Add sugar, egg, and Stork mix and work into a dough with a wooden spoon or with the dough hooks of an electric food mixer. Cover with a damp cloth and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
      2. Preheat oven to 220°C, 200°C fan oven, Gas mark 7. Work in the remaining 50 g flour into the dough if too sticky and roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1 cm thick. Mix lemon zest, cinnamon, cranberries and almonds into the dough. Roll up the dough and cut into 2 cm thick slices. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper.
      3. Whisk the egg. Brush buns with egg wash and sprinkle with crystal sugar. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown for 15-20 minutes or until cooked.
      4. The lemony touch of cinnamon rolls can be enhanced with more lemon zest. Those who prefer them with a stronger cinnamon taste can sprinkle in more cinnamon into the rolled-out dough.
