For the dough

4 eggs
175g caster sugar
1 tsp fine salt
500ml milk, lukewarm
125g margarine
1.2kg plain flour, divided
2 tbsp yeast

For the filling

125g margarine
400g brown sugar
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
150g pecans, chopped

For the icing

500g powdered sugar
125g margarine
250ml milk
15ml almond essence
1) To make the dough, beat the eggs, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Combine the warm milk and margarine and add to the egg mixture.

2) Slowly add half the flour and beat well. Add the yeast and mix thoroughly. Add the remaining flour and mix on medium speed for 7 minutes.

3) Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with cling film. Let the dough rise to double its size, about 1 hour.

4) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Roll the dough into a 45cm by 60cm rectangle.

5) To make the filling, spread 125g of margarine over the dough and sprinkle the entire surface with brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped pecans.

6) Roll the dough into a cylinder shape, starting with the bottom edge, and then cut into 12 slices.

7) Place the slices onto a greased baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

8) In the meantime, mix all the ingredients for the icing together and beat until smooth. Spread the icing over the cooled rolls and serve immediately.
