  • Cooking time 20 mins
  • Serves

    2 cups self-raising flour
    pinch salt
    90g butter, chopped
    2/3 cup milk

    For the filling
    120g butter, softened
    4 tablespoons Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar (or half cinnamon and half Chelsea White Sugar)

    For the icing
    1 cup Chelsea Icing Sugar
    1 tablespoon boiling water


    1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
    2. Sift flour and salt into bowl, then rub chopped butter into flour using your finger tips.
    3. Make a well in the centre and add almost all the milk. Mix lightly to make a soft dough (add the rest of the milk if necessary).
    4. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
    5. Roll out dough to a 25 x 40cm rectangle of 5mm thickness.
    6. To make the filling; beat the butter with Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar and cinnamon sugar with electric beaters until light and fluffy. Spread evenly over the dough rectangle.
    7. Roll up dough from the long side and using a sharp knife, slice the dough into 3cm pieces.
    8. Place scroll pieces into the holes in a muffin tin, greased tray cut-side up. (Avoid using a baking tray, as the contents will leak/spread).  Cook for 20-30 minutes or until golden.
    9. Drizzle with icing.
    10. To make the icing; combine Chelsea Icing Sugar and boiling water in a small bowl beat until smooth.

I love them - I'm an 11-yr-old and found them so easy to make!


So good!! Kids asked me to make them again! Two days in a row... must be yummy!!

I'm a 13 year old and i found this super easy to bake and it tastes AMAZING!!

nice recipe, im a 13 yr old with zero cooking experience and this was good. ty

We make them for Saturday sports in our house and add chocolate chips to the filling. Gone every time. All the kiddos love eating them and my kiddos love helping make them. YUM

Love these! Would def recommend. I made some with cocoa instead of cinnamon & worked well too :)

Awesome straight forward recipe. The family loved them :)

So tasty! I changed the butter to margarine. Mixed & kneaded the dough in the food processor, didn't need all the milk. I also added an extra tspn of cinnamon to the filling. 3 Tblspns water to the icing sugar. Baking in the muffin tray is a brilliant idea also! Definately saving this recipe!

So easy to make and so yummy!! Everyone was raving about these, they definitely didn't last long!

These are just amazing from the oven, didn't last long with my family. The recipe was easy and quantities perfect, a good moist scroll with lots of flavour. Will be saving to my favourites bookmark!!

They were amazing! they looked amazing, they tasted amazing!!
Also very very easy to make and they were gone really fast!

10/10 would make these cinnamon scrolls again.

Gone in a flash....delish!!!( cinnamon added to icing too)

Quite heavy, more cinnamon definitely needed asked it taste like a scone.

it sounds good, i would of givin this a 5 star but its the fact that it says at the end "this recipe has not been tested by chelsea sugar" but yea nice clear instructions, just think u should test the recipes :)

Love these cinnamon scrolls, needed to add more milk though

Did not rise, were dry

I followed the recipe exactly (I even double checked after) and I found that the amount of milk was not nearly enough and I had to add more than what was indicated and my dough still turned out lumpy even after relentless kneading. Used cream cheese icing instead of the one in the recipe. Not sure what I did wrong, but still tasted alright, just a bit heavy.

I love the roll

Yum yum, didn't last long. The whole family loved them. Muffin tray was a great idea.

delicious and super yummy!! Loved eating them

Absolutely delicious.....great for the kids to make as well

The butter and sugar mix will run, and on a flat try there's no stopping it. Add the scones to a muffin tray not a flat tray and it's much cleaner. The excess will form around the scone's bottom making a delicious toffee at the base when cool.

fantastic, fluffy and yum

Wow this was absolutely delicious I added walnuts to the filling and that made it even better thank you I love your recipes

Really nice! Everybody loved them!
The second time I made them I rolled out the dough evn thinner / bigger and doubled the cinnamon for the filling because I love cinnamon so much --- YUMMYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!
I also love that you dont need any yeast!

Awesome made me get creative!!!!!!

This was delicious
The dough was nice and fluffy and I added a hint of cocoa to the cinnamon mix, with and without the cocoa was scrumptious and there was no mess after I was done!
Quick ,easy and simple
Would make this again

Note: I added alittle Lemon Juice to my Icing for a bit of Tangyness.
