Sweet Scrolls

Since I bought my Companion one thing that has eluded me is beautiful sweet bread dough. I have tried many recipes, I’ve lived with mediocre for months, but this weekend I completely changed things up and created a new recipe.  This recipe is for cinnamon scrolls, but you can use this dough with any sweet scroll filling or to make finger buns.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can bake the scrolls on a flat baking tray, however I find tins with small sides help the rolls rise in a uniform manner, making them easier to pull apart and of course, they look nicer too!
  2. Proving - If your oven has a 30°C setting, I recommend you add a bowl of water to the bottom and allow the dough to rise in the oven. If not, get creative. Use the laundry when the tumble dryer is on, the dishwasher when it's just finished its cycle, the dashboard of your car with a wet tea over the dough or the microwave after you've heated a mug of water.
  3. If you do not have a steam oven, you can create one by adding a (oven safe) bowl of water to the bottom of your oven
  4. I find these sweet enough without icing and prefer not to ice them so I can store them in the freezer
  5. Freezing immediately, once cooled is important as there are no preservatives used. The rolls defrost perfectly, especially in a packed lunch box in the Australian summer!
