Welcome to a special Girl Guide addition to our trip into the world of vintage cookbooks.
These small fundraising cookbooks are often a goldmine of a variety of different recipies. It’s so much fun to hunt through to find one that takes your fancy. There is nothing that indicates when this one was published but the advertisements inside have phone numbers comprising of 5 numbers, so if anyone has any idea what era this would be please leave a comment. 😊
I decided to pick a recipe I’ve made a few times in the past as a fun twist on a scone recipe, this one has wholemeal flour so that makes it healthy, right? 😊 Let’s just run with that idea I say as I bite into another one.
Today I’m whipping up some super quick Cinnamon Pinwheels.
Our ingredients include:
1/2 cup plain flour, 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking powder
1 Tbsp Butter
1/3 cup Milk
And For The Filling:
2 Tbsp Brown sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Butter
The oven gets put onto 200 Celsius to warm up and all the dry ingredients are sifted into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips (or my cheat’s way of whizzing it in my mini Kenwood to mix it in super finely). Then the milk also gets whizzed in to make a dough, or traditionally mixed in with a knife.
Turn out the dough onto a floured board and roll it out into a rectangle. Melt your butter for your filling in a saucepan (or cheat microwave) and brush over your dough. The sugar and cinnamon get mixed together and sprinkled over the buttered dough.
Roll your dough up from one of the long sides and cut evenly into thick slices. Then pop them into your hot oven for 10-12 minutes, easy as that! So quick to make and a nice rustic version with the wholemeal flour, sooooo good warm from the oven!
I hope you have a go at this recipe for yourself as it’s super yummy as an afternoon treat.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you back here soon!
