Easiest Slow Cooker Cinnamon Scrolls Ever

Is there really anything better than warm, soft cinnamon rolls?

How do you eat them? Do you pull them apart revealing the lightly textured sweet bread, gently scented with cardamom. Then slowly unravel the curl to unveil the sweet, cinnamon sugar centre. Or do you bite straight into it getting a perfect mouthful of both soft bread with crusty sugar and a firm crust?

The benefit of making cinnamon buns in a slow cooker is that they stay so soft and although you don’t get a brown top you do get a beautifully browned base and sides.

Make these over the weekend so everyone can enjoy the warming spice and bread aromas that will waft through the house as they cook.

INGREDIENTS

1 Tbs dry yeast

3.5 cups or 420g plain flour

70g unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tbs ground cinnamon

Method

Place the yeast, sugar and warm milk in a large bowl and stir together. Wait for 10 minutes to see if the yeast is active (you will see bubbles) then add the flour, salt and cardamom. Mix all together and knead for 10 minutes or till it’s nice and smooth.

Leave to rest, covered in a tea towel, in a warm area. This will make it relax after it’s kneading and will make it easier for you to roll out.

Mix up the ingredients of the filling and set aside.

Roll out the dough on a floured bench into a long rectangle.

Place the cinnamon filling over the surface of the dough and then roll up, sealing the seam.

Cut the dough into 12 even sections and place in a greaseproof paper lined slow cooker.

Cover the top of the cooker with a tea towel and then place on the lid. This will stop the condensation from falling onto the dough.

Turn the slow cooker on high and cook for 1.5 hours. This time will be different for different cookers so test the scrolls at the 1 hour mark and leave for another 30 minutes or more till done.
