DIRECTIONS

  • Put all the ingredients into your bread machine and select the Dough Program. Add the raisins before the end of the last kneading, when your machine beeps. (If it doesn't offer you this option, add them when you roll out the dough).
  • Place the prepared dough onto a lightly floured surface and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
  • Mix up 1/3 cup soft brown sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon and 2 tbs soft butter into a paste. Spread this onto the dough.
  • Roll the dough up lengthwise, like a jelly-roll / Swiss roll.
  • Slice into 1 inch thick rounds. Place these into a lightly greased deep sided baking tray (a roasting tray is good) Cover with a clean cloth and place into a warm, draft-free spot to rise for an hour.
  • Bake at 180 deg C for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove and while cooling drizzle with a paste of Icing sugar and water. No quantities for this - just use icing sugar and add teaspoons of hot water at a time. Mix until smooth and not too runny.
