  1. 270 g plain flour
  2. 1 tsp salt
  3. 50 g sugar
  4. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  5. 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  6. 1/4 tsp ginger
  7. 5 cloves, ground
  8. 2 tsp easy-bake (fast-action) yeast
  9. peel of 2 oranges
  10. 20 g vegan margarine
  11. 150 ml warm water
  12. 1/2 tsp orange essence
  1. 50 ml water
  2. 50 g sugar
  3. 1/4 tsp orange essence
  4. 1/4 tsp cinnamon essence
  1. Mix all of the dough ingredients and knead well for 5-10 minutes. The dough should be very squidgy and not too dry. Separate into 9 equal pieces and roll into evenly shaped balls. Place in a lined tin, about 1/2 inch apart. Cover and leave somewhere warm for about 2-3 hours. Preheat the oven to 180 C (fan) about 10 minutes before they have finished proving. They should increase in size so that there are no gaps between them (see pictures). Bake for 20 minutes.
  2. In a non-stick pan, mix the water with sugar and orange and cinnamon essence on a medium heat. When all the sugar has dissolved, brush the mixture over the swirls and allow to cool a little.
  1. Best eaten hot!
