Our Christmas breakfast this year will be home-made Cinnamon Swirls.

I’ve made these before and they came out really well!

This recipe is one that I found online here. The ingredients, however, are all in cups (an American measure). It’s a bit of a pain to have to convert it, so I’ve converted it and the results are below.

For the Dough

245 ml milk
57 grams butter, cut into chunks
475 grams self-raising flour
7g dried yeast
50 grams granulated sugar
2.5 grams salt
1 egg

For the Filling

220 grams brown sugar
10 grams ground cinnamon
115 grams butter, softened

For the Icing

240 grams icing sugar
28 grams melted butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
25 ml milk

What I would add to the recipe are raisins, or a dried fruit mix, which would go in to the filling / cinnamon butter mix.

If you find yourself in the position of having to convert a recipe from American measure to European, then I’d recommend Cafe Fernando’s Conversion Tables.
