Cinnamon Date Scrolls

Hubby loves coffee scrolls, cinnamon scrolls, with heaps of icing on top.  However, the doctors didn't deliver good news to him and it does look like he has to cut back some sweet addictions.

He still loves his sweet breads and I have some dates left over.  So, this is it...

Cinnamon Date Scrolls

1 part of Plain Flour Pain Viennois dough as per this recipe
100g butter (I know its bad)
6 heap tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp all spice powder
1 cup dates (roughly), diced

Makd the dough and let it proof.
When it's almost proofed for the first time, melt butter and mix in sugar, cinnamon powder, all spice and stir in the chipped dates. 

After the dough was proofed, roll it out into a rectagular shape and spread the filling mix.
Simply roll up the dough into a long log and slice...

Place them on a lined tray and let them proof again for about 45 minutes to an hour.
Brush on egg wash and and bake in 180C oven.

It's sweet enough without the icing, but it will be nice with icing as well...

  1. This looks soooooo fabulous. I'm not the biggest icing fan so I'm glad to know that it's sweet enough without it! You and your family have a great weekend :-)
