  • 1/4 cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2-1/4 tsps yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk

Mix altogether and let sit for 10-15  minutes.

Sift 3 cups of flour over the yeast mixture and mix well


  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix well – it will be a bit sticky.  Knead on mixer 7-8 minutes until a soft but not sticky dough

Put into a greased bowl, cover and let rise 60-90 minutes.

Turn out onto a floured surface, form into a ball and cut into 6 pieces

Form each piece into a ball and roll each one out to a very long oblong, about 17″

Brush with soft butter

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar

Roll up the dough to make a log.  Roll the log to make it even a bit longer.

With a sharp knife cut each log lengthwise into 2 pieces.

Take one piece and curl it into a snail and put into a well-buttered muffin pan

When all rolled, cover and let rise for about 30-40 minutes.

Brush the tops with egg wash (sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top if you wish) and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

When ready to serve, you can use a corer to make a hole in the center and fill with whatever you like – I like a bit of pastry cream and then a dollop of jam on top.

Put a nice dollop of whipped cream on top and dust heavily with confectioners sugar.

Makes 12
