Cinnamon and almond whirls August 23, 2010

Success at last!! My first try at cinnamon whirls was based on a recipe which said to put the whirls into muffin trays to cook but I would advise against this as they end up doughy and uncooked. This time, I put them flat onto greased baking trays and they came out perfectly. Also, a chef at work suggested melting a little marzipan into the cinnamon mixture, but as I didn’t have any I put in some ground almonds instead which gave a subtle almond taste but doesn’t distract from the delicious, sweet and buttery cinnamon. If you’re not a nut fan, you could just as easily take the almond out of the recipe below without any other adjustments and the recipe would work just as well.
