  • For the Dough:

    • 200g (1 3/4 cups) self-rising flour
    • 240g (1 cup) Greek yogurt
  • For the Filling:

    • 50g (1/4 cup) brown sugar
    • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
    • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • For the Icing (optional):

    • 60g (1/2 cup) powdered sugar
    • 1-2 tbsp milk

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a baking dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Brush the melted butter over the dough.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the buttered dough.
  6. Starting from one of the long sides, tightly roll up the dough into a log. Cut the log into 6 equal pieces.
  7. Place the rolls in the greased baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. While the rolls are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over the warm rolls once they are out of the oven.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Use a sharp knife or dental floss to cut the dough log into even pieces without squishing the rolls.
  • Ensure your Greek yogurt is thick for the best dough consistency.
  • For a more indulgent filling, add chopped nuts or raisins.
