  • DifficultyEasy
3 tbsp butter, melted
60g hazelnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
50g dark brown sugar
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 (450g) loaf purchased frozen white bread dough, thawed
95g icing sugar
3 tbsp mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp buttermilk
1) Brush 1 tbsp of the melted butter over the bottom and sides of an 20cm square by 5cm deep baking dish. Mix the nuts, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon and cloves in a small bowl. Roll out the thawed dough on a lightly floured surface to a 30cm by 22.5cm rectangle.

2) Brush 1 tbsp of the butter over the dough and then sprinkle the nut mixture on top, leaving a 1cm border along the top and bottom sides.

3) Starting at one long side, roll up the dough jam-roll-style, forming a log. Pinch the seam to seal. Cut the log into 9 equal pieces. Arrange the rolls, cut side down, in the prepared baking dish, spacing evenly.

4) Cover the dish with cling film. Let the rolls rise in a warm draft-free area until puffed, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, position the rack in the centre of the oven and preheat the oven to 170C/Gas 3.

5) Bake the cinnamon rolls uncovered until the tops are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the icing sugar, mascarpone cheese and buttermilk in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy.

6) Brush the remaining 1 tbsp of butter over the baked cinnamon rolls and then drizzle the cheese mixture over the top. Serve warm.
