Cinnamon Cranberry Log

This delicious cinnamon log is a great hit in our house! :-) I made it with extra pizza dough we had after we had no toppings left to make more pizza!

A ball of yeast dough approx as much as you can comfortably hold in your cupped hands

Approx 1 TBSP fresh Lemon rind - or fresh orange rind would be good too

Approx 1 TBSP fresh lemon juice - or fresh orange juice

Approx 1 cup brown sugar

Carob chips
Melted butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Just make a regular yeast dough.When dough is ready to use roll it out on a floured surface to about a millimeter thick.

Brush butter over the dough.

Mix brown sugar, lemon rind, and lemon juice together. Spread onto the dough evenly. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon powder. Then with cranberries and carob chips. Roll it up tightly -- like you would a carpet -- and seal the edges. Brush with butter and place into a greased bread tin which has been sprinkled with poppy seeds.

Bake til golden brown. Remove from tin and cover with a wet paper towel and a dish cloth to keep crust soft. Remove when cool.


Approx 3 TBSP soft butter
1 tbsp alcohol free vanilla essence
Approx 1 cup icing sugar

Whisk together til smooth and drizzle over the cooled cinnamon log.

Cut into slices and serve with a hot drink e.g. malted barley cup. :-)
