My daughter and I made these for breakfast today...real healthy, I know but some days we endulge. They are super easy and quick to make. They don't even come close in taste compared to these but they also dont take hours/days to make! Would be perfect for Mother's Day brunch.

Adapted from Donna Hay Magazine, Issue 34
Serves 8

1/2 cup (110g) white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cups (260g) plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup (70g) pitted and chopped dates
1/2 cup (125ml) heavy cream
1/2 cup (125ml) milk
3 Tablespoons butter

Note: I made these without the dates. I think these would also taste good with dried cranberries or raisins.

Preheat oven to 180°C (355°F). Combine the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and set aside. Place the flour, baking powder and dates in a bowl and stir to combine. Make a well in the center, gradually add the cream and milk, stirring, until a soft dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.

Roll out to a 12 x 14 inch rectangle.

Brush with butter and sprinkle with the sugar mixture, reserving 1 tablespoon.

Roll the dough (short end to short end) and slice into 8 pieces.

Place the dough rolls into individual muffin tins sprayed with non-stick spray. Brush the top of rolls with butter and sprinkle with reserved sugar.

Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked and lightly golden.

I bet those smelled so yummy while baking. I agree, the cranberries might be a nice touch, but then I wouldn't turn my nose up at these!

Yum! I just baked something with dates today and I would have kept the dates! Looks delicious.

My son and I pigged out on the roasted sweet potato wedges this morning for breakfast. They sure were tasty:D
These pastries are so cool all rolled up in the muffin tin. I bet you and your daughter had a wonderful time making them!
