Makes 12


  • 2 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 100g butter, chilled, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 19cm x 29cm (base) slice pan.
  2. Combine flour and caster sugar in a bowl. Rub in half the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Combine milk and egg in a jug, then stir into flour mixture until a soft, sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 30 seconds or until smooth.
  3. Roll out the dough into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Sprinkle with walnuts and almonds. Top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Dot with remaining butter.
  4. Roll up dough tightly from one long side. Using a serrated knife, trim ends. Cut the roll into 12 slices. Place slices in prepared pan. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until golden. Serve scrolls warm with golden syrup.
