Maple and cinnamon rolls
9-12 portions


  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp dried fast yeast
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 140ml milk
  • 100g butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil or sunflower oil for greasing

For the cinnamon butter filling:

  • 80g softened butter
  • 80g maple sugar
  • 40g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon

For the cinnamon glaze:

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100ml pure maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust taste)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  1. In a mixing bowl, stir flour, yeast, cinnamon and maple sugar together. Make a well in the middle and add the eggs
  2. In a small pan, gently heat milk (just warmed to touch), butter and salt then add to the dough mixture
  3. Using a free-standing mixer, knead on medium setting for 7 minutes or about 15 minutes if kneading by hand
  4. Place dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover with cling film and set aside in a warm place for about 45 minutes or until doubled in size

To make the cinnamon butter filling:

  1. For the cinnamon filling, mix together softened butter, maple sugar, flour and cinnamon to form a spreadable paste
  2. When ready, turn out dough onto a well-floured surface and roll into to a 40cm square
  3. Spread cinnamon paste liberally to the edges of the dough then roll tightly into a long tube shape
  4. To retain a neat swirl in the middle of each of your buns, loop a piece of cotton around the width of the dough, crossover the two ends and pull in opposite directions to make a nice clean cut
  5. Repeat the process to divide the dough into 9 pieces
  6. Place spiral side up into a non-stick 3-inch deep tray, leaving room to expand
  7. Leave to prove at room temperature for a further 35 – 45 minutes to double in size. Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4
  8. For the cinnamon glaze, brush buns with mixed beaten egg and maple syrup
  9. Dust the buns with cinnamon, bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
