  • 240 g all-purpose flour
  • 165 ml milk
  • 5.5 g instant yeast
  • 25 g sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 40 g butter


  • 50 g brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 30 g butter
  • 30 g raisins


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp honey


  • Add milk into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle the yeast in and mix briefly to dissolve the yeast.
  • Add the sugar, followed by flour and salt, and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes (with a dough hook), until the dough comes together.
  • Add the softened butter and continue the machine kneading for about 7 to 8 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Turn the dough onto a clean work surface and knead for about 30 seconds to form a smooth ball.
  • Place the dough in a large bowl, cover, and proof in a warm place until it doubles in size.
  • Turn the proofed dough onto a clean surface, and roll it to a rectangle measuring 25 cm by 30 cm.
  • Spread the filling. Start with the butter. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle it generously all over the rolled dough. Finish off with the raisins.
  • Roll the dough, starting from one of the longer edges, into a tight log.
  • Cut the dough log into 9 equal sections
  • Arrange the sections in a deep, well greased, 7 inches square pan or baking dish.
  • Cover and let the rolls double in size.
  • Bake the rolls in a preheated oven at 175°Celsius for 25 minutes.
  • Remove the baked rolls from oven and brush the top with butter, followed by the honey.
  • Let the rolls cool slightly before turning them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
