Gingerbread Roll

Another sweet bread roll? Yes they are sweet as usual, but they are actually scones :D They are quick bread using baking powder as raising agent instead of yeast. 

No mixer needed for making this roll! Mix, knead, pat out the dough, sprinkle on fillings, roll up and slice and ready to bake.

For a festive feeling, I've stacked them into a X'mas tree or you can choose to place them apart on a line baking sheet :D

warm, sweet & buttery spiced roll

Ingredient (12 rolls)
  • 280gm plain flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 75gm chilled butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • glaze cherries for garnish
Filling :
  • 100gm butter, softened
  • 50gm fine sugar
  • 100gm light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • zest of one orange
To glaze :
  • 80gm icing sugar
  • enough orange juice to thin

  1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and spices into a large mixing bowl. Add in chilled butter and rub in until it resembles fine bread crumbs.
  2. Whisk egg, milk and molasses together. Add the mixture gradually into the flour mixture, stirring it with a fork, until a soft dough is formed. You may not need all the liquid.
  3. Knead a few times. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Pat out to an 8" x 12" rectangle. Dot the softened butter all over. Mix the rest of the filling ingredient together and sprinkle evenly over the butter. 
  4. Roll the dough up tightly from the long side. Press the ends together to seal. Cut into 12 slices slices. Place the cut rolls on a lined baking sheet. Place glaced cherries randomly over the rolls.
  5. Bake in preheated oven at 200 deg cel for 20mins until golden brown.
  6. Remove the rolls from oven and place on a serving plate. Whisk the glaze together. Drizzle it over the rolls. Best serve warm.
