Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Plain Flour
  • 7 g Yeast
  • 250 ml Milk Warm
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 50 g Unsalted Butter Melted
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Apples Peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • 100 g Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 50 g Butter Unsalted and softened

For the Glaze:

  • 100 g Icing Sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp Milk


  • In a large bowl, combine the warm milk with instant yeast and allow it to rest for approximately 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  • Add the melted butter, granulated sugar, and salt into the yeast mixture, stirring to blend them together.
  • Gradually add the flour, mixing until a dough forms. Proceed to knead the dough for approximately 5 minutes until it attains a smooth and elastic texture.
  • Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, covering it with a clean kitchen towel. Leave it to proof in a warm location for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  • While the dough is undergoing proofing, prepare the apple filling by combining the finely chopped apples, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, deflate it by punching it down. Roll it out on a floured surface into a rectangular shape.
  • Evenly spread the softened butter over the dough, followed by a sprinkling of the apple filling mixture.
  • Roll up the dough tightly, starting from the longer edge, to create a log. Proceed to cut the log into 12 equal slices.
  • Arrange the slices in a greased baking dish, leaving some space between them. Cover and let them rest for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Bake the rolls for approximately 25 minutes or until they attain a golden brown colour and are thoroughly cooked.
  • While the rolls are baking, prepare the glaze by combining icing sugar with just enough milk to achieve a thick yet pourable consistency.
  • Once the rolls are out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over them while they are still warm.
  • Serve these delectable Apple Cinnamon Rolls and relish the flavours!
