When my dad wants Scones and my son wants Cinnabon, we make a plan?? My son and I experimented and came up with a magical combination ????
3 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 a sachet of instant yeast
250g butter / margarine
1 egg, beaten
+- 3/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup white choc-chips
1/4 cup cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
125 g butter
1 cup icing sugar
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar & desiccated coconut.
Rub in butter/margarine.
Mix the egg and vanilla essence in a small bowl and using a fork.
Warm the milk in the microwave for around 30 seconds and add the yeast. Stir both the milk and egg mixture into flour mixture until moistened.
Knead dough for 5 minutes and allow to rise for half an hour.
Roll out dough till it is a 1cm thick, large rectangle onto which you sprinkle the filling mix evenly (cinnamon, brown sugar and white chocolate chips).
Roll the dough like a Swiss roll (spiral shape), while making sure it is tight enough to prevent spilling of the filling.
Cut the, now log shaped dough into equal pieces of 5cm.
Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven at 200C, or until light brown.
Melt butter in a bowl and add the icing sugar to it and use as a glaze to pour on the Scone-abons as soon as you take them out of the oven.
You can top with any other toppings that you prefer but it is perfect this way.
