Quick, Easy but oh so delicious afterschool snack

On dreary, wet days like today in the middle of Autumn, all I crave is comfort food and this is so quick to do, I started it at 3pm this afternoon and had it ready before I was at the school gates for 3:30pm and no I didn't fly on my broomstick.


All you need is 5 simple ingredients and if you get them tomorrow morning, you too can have it ready before pickup tomorrow.


Nothing says homely, than freshly baked, still warm pastries.


Ingredients:


50g of unsalted butter
50g of caster sugar
2 tbsp of Cinnamon
1 block of puff pastry (500g) or ready to use puff pastry (makes the job even quicker)

1 egg(not pictured)

Method:


1- Preheat the oven at 200c on Fan



2-Roll out the pastry with some sprinkled flour so it doesn't stick to the surface.

You will need  to keep rolling each end, one at a time, so  that it rolls out into a rectangle. Once its as fine as a 2mm  you are ready to go.


3- Zap the butter in a bowl in the microwave, for 20 secs, if it has not completely dissolved, keep zapping it in the microwave, in 10 secs intervals.


4- Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a clean bowl, use a spoon to really incorporate it.


5- Brush the butter all over the pastry that you just rolled out, Be generous.


6-Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon all over the pastry


7- Roll the pastry from one end to the other to create a long sausage.


8- cut it into 12 equal pieces around 4-5cm long.



9- Using a cupcake tray, butter the tray with any remaining melted butter, and place a cut piece in each hole.



10- Beat the egg and brush it on top of the cinammon bun, finishing by sprinkling any remaining sugar and cinnamon.



11-Stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes and that is it.


I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
