The starting point for these indulgent cinnamon rolls is our two-ingredient dough, which we enrich with an egg, some vanilla extract, and a little icing sugar.

Ingredients

White Self Raising Flour

250 g

Icing Sugar

75 g

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

370 g

Vanilla Extract

1¼ tablespoons, level

Egg, whole, raw

1 large, raw

Light Brown Sugar

4 tablespoons

Ground Cinnamon

1 tablespoons, level

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4.
  2. Combine the flour and 2 tbsp icing sugar in a large bowl. Whisk together 340g yogurt, 1 tbsp vanilla extract and the egg in a bowl. Add the yogurt mixture to the flour mixture; stir well with a wooden spoon until just combined and then keep kneading the dough in the bowl, for about 2 minutes until smooth.
  3. Place a large piece of baking paper on a work surface and sprinkle with a little flour. Place dough on the paper, and roll into a 30 x 23cm rectangle. Sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar and cinnamon, all the way to the edges. Starting with a long edge, use the baking paper to help roll up the dough to form a 30.5cm long roll. Cut roll into 2.5cm slices. Arrange dough slices in a 28 x 18cm baking dish misted with cooking spray. Bake until lightly browned for 22-25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Combine the remaining icing sugar, yogurt and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cinnamon rolls. Serve warm.
