We like big buns, and we cannot lie! So we got the recipe for this chocolate-drizzled cinnamon roll from East London’s newest Danish bakery, The Bread Station. Do bear in mind that this recipe requires extra proving time




  • butter 30g
  • whole milk 150ml, warm to the touch
  • fresh yeast 15g, crumbled (or use a 7g packet of dried yeast)
  • caster sugar 50g
  • salt 1 1/2 tsp
  • strong white bread flour 240g, plus extra for dusting


  • marzipan 50g, cut into small pieces
  • caster sugar 50g
  • butter 50g, softened
  • ground cinnamon 2 tsp
  • dark chocolate 50g


  • Step 1

    Melt the butter by stirring into the warm milk then pour this mix over the crumbled yeast in a large bowl. Add the sugar and salt and then mix in the flour until it comes together as a dough. Knead for 5 minutes until smooth, then leave it to rise for 40 minutes.

  • Step 2

    To make the filling, mix the marzipan with the sugar in a food processor or mixer until the sugar is incorporated. Add the butter on low speed until it is all mixed together.
