Cinnamon Swirl Recipe - Very Easy!

Once again, life has taken over and posts here just don't happen, but I thought I'd try and post a quick recipe that I made with Littlest W yesterday.

I love cinnamon swirls and this recipe was so quick and easy! It's slightly adapted from the BBC's Good Food website.

  • 50g butter or margarine
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Sheet of puff pastry 320g (I used Jus-Rol)
  • Mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon together until soft.
  • Spread over the sheet of pastry.
  • Sprinkle raisins over the top.
  • Roll up into a sausage.
  • Slice and place onto a greased baking tray.
  • Sprinkle a little more sugar over the top.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes on 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

When I make them again (as I most definitely will!) I might make a bit more mixture. You can also add some chopped almonds if you like. Highly recommended as something the kids can help with!
