Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

It may be the influence of the Great British Bake Off or just because I love a sweet treat but I have been getting into some serious baking! Over the weekend I tried out these Cinnamon Rolls for a friends dinner party and they turned out wonderfully!
Perfect with a cup of tea or some ice cream!

1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
3 Tsp Yeast
75g Melted Butter
2 Eggs, room temperature
1 Tsp Salt
5 Cups Flour

75g Butter 
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tsp All Spice

50g Cream Cheese
300g Icing Sugar
Vanilla Pod
30g Butter

Combine Milk and Sugar then add the yeast (make sure the milk is room temperature). Let sit for 5 minutes. Add butter, eggs, salt and 2 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture. Stir until mixed and then add a cup of flour at a time until you have dough. Knead for about 10 mins making sure the dough is not sticky. Place in a greased glass bowl, cover and place in warm place to rise for 1 hour. 

Roll dough out to about 15x20 inches. Mix the filling ingredients and spread onto dough. Roll from the long edge & cut into twelve equal pieces. Transfer to a greased baking dish, cover and leave to rise for a further 30 minutes. 

Bake rolls for 18~20 minutes at 200 degrees until golden brown & touching each other. Whilst baking make icing but mixing the ingredients together.

Tastes to Enjoy!

If you follow this blog, you will know that apart from my obvious love of fashion, my next greatest passion is food! I adore trying new restaurants in London and other parts of the world when I have the chance.  
Saying this though there is nothing better than cooking up a storm in your very own kitchen!
As I often work from home, I am lucky not to spend time commuting and have been trying to cook as often as possible. Last week, I cooked something that was so very easy yet enjoyable that I thought I would share!
Fig Jam
8 Ripe Figs
3 Whole Star Anise
4 Tablespoons Light Muscovado Sugar
2 Tablespoons Elderflower Vinegar (or balsamic if you can’t find this)  
Place all ingredients in a small frying pan and bring to the boil then simmer for approx 45mins (the figs will start to break down and the mixture will become thick)  
I like to then blend mine but you can have it nice and chunky if you prefer!  
Serve with toasted ciabatta bread, goat’s cheese and rocket - simple!
 Roast Sweet Potato, Chilli and Coconut Soup  
2 Large Sweet Potatoes
4 Carrots
1 Onion
400ml Can Coconut Milk
1 Cup of Chicken Stock
1-2 Red Chillis
1 Tablespoon of Ground Coriander
Fresh Coriander
Salt & Pepper to taste

Boil the whole sweet potatoes for approx 5 mins and then put in a roasting dish to cook for 1-11/2 hours depending on the size (make sure to pierce the potatoes if they are whole).

Place the carrots, onion and ground coriander in another roasting dish and cook for 1-2 hours (boil the carrots first if you don’t have this amount of time).

Add the roasted vegetables, chillis, stock, coconut milk and fresh coriander to a saucepan. Use a hand held blender and add in more stock if you please!!

Enjoy J
