These caramelised apple and cinnamon scrolls are a happy accident. Want to take regular apple and cinnamon scrolls that one step further? Well, have some toddlers who distract you from keeping an eye on the apples stewing on the stove. That should do it!
I was having the wonderful Ruth (Gourmet Girlfriend) over for a cup of tea and a chat, and wanted to have something fresh-baked out of the oven. I made a quick pizza dough in the breadmaker the night before, used some for the kids’ dinner, and rolled the rest with a lovely sweet cinnamony filling. I popped them into the oven the next morning to warm, and then I ate pretty much the whole plate single-handedly. Sorry, Ruth!
I used the pizza dough recipe from the side of the box of flour, and winged the rest. Happy accident indeed!
To make them heart-shaped for your loved ones on this special day, you can roll each edge into the middle (instead of one big spiral) and refrigerate for a bit. When it’s slightly firm, you can cut into the slices and place them on the tray. You might need to foof them a bit to make sure they’re in the right shape before baking, but it doesn’t take much 🙂
