  • Jus-Rol croissant dough 2 x 350g packs
  • unsalted butter 100g, softened
  • soft light brown sugar 125g
  • ground cinnamon 2 tsp
  • orange 1, zested


  • icing sugar 50g
  • vanilla extract ½ tsp
  • milk 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    Unroll the croissant dough rolls, and cut each in 1/2 widthways so you have 4 smaller rectangles. Spread each with the butter, then mix together the sugar, cinnamon and orange zest, and sprinkle evenly over each. Roll the pieces from the shortest side, into a sausage, then cut into 3. Repeat with the other pieces.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Put each roll into the hole of a non-stick muffin tin, spiral side facing up. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden on top and cooked through. Remove to a wire rack, spirals facing upwards, to cool, with a piece of baking paper underneath the rack.

  • Step 3

    Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the vanilla and milk, mixing well – it should be a thick, drizzle-able consistency.

  • Step 4

    Once the buns are warm but no longer hot, drizzle with the icing, then eat straightaway.
