Sunday Funday: Cinnamon Swirls

I decided to make these yummy cinnamon swirls after seeing the lovely Laura post her pics on Instagram (@lelizaxo)
This is such an easy simple recipe which makes the most amazing cinnamon swirls - no more bought shop anymore! Read on to find out how I made these...

3 tablespoon Cinnamon
7 tablespoon butter
225g brown sugar
450g flour
4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon sugar
150ml Milk
1) Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees and put some tinfoil on a tray
2) place your cinnamon, 4 tablespoon butter and brown sugar in a bowl and mix well until crumbly
3) Scatter half of this mixture on to your baking tray
4) Place your flour, baking powder, and white sugar into a bowl
5) melt the remaining butter in a separate bowl then add to your dry mixture
6) Add 150 ml of milk and mix well until it forms into a dough
7) Roll the dough out onto a clean surface into an even rectangle shape and 1/4 inch thick
8) sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon filling evenly onto dough and roll the dough from one end to the other
9) Slice the roll with a sharp knife into individual rolls (makes around 10-12)
10) place them onto your baking tray and bake for around 15-20 mins
11) drizzle icing sugar mixed with milk over them once cooled down
