    They’re not as difficult as I first thought.

    I made these today to take for afternoon tea with friends, they were very yummy.

    The actual scroll with just glaze is amazing, soft and almost stretchy bread very yummy with a tea or coffee. The icing is yum but super sweet so you only need a small dollop.

    At first glance, with its long list of ingredients the recipe looks difficult and time consuming but if your a frequent bread maker then it’s just bread with some spice and fruit. So easy.

    I was dubious about the glaze but it was perfect and a very much needed step to finish off your scroll with or without the icing.

    I had no currents so I replaced them with cranberries which were fine. Also I had no gluten flour but I was using bakers flour anyway and it all worked out fine. I only used 20ml water for the icing (I wanted it nice and thick) and I didn’t think to melt the instant coffee in the water first so I had to mix it for nearly 2 minutes to get the coffee granules to dissolve into the icing. Next time I’ll use the full 25ml water and I will dissolve the coffee in that water before I mix it with the sugar for the icing.

    All in all this is a great recipe and not at all hard.
