  • 1 x Dough (recipe link below)


  • ¾ cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cinnamon syrup

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt


  • Mix together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC and line a baking sheet with baking paper. 
  • Once the dough has risen, roll it out to approximately 2cm thick (on a floured surface) then spread over the brown sugar mixture. 
  • Roll into a tight coil then cut off the edges. Make a slit, all the way down the dough then braid the two halves together. Bring the edges together and pinch to form a ring. 
  • Place the breakfast ring on the prepared baking sheet and place in the oven. 
  • Allow to bake for 35-45 minutes or until the ring is golden brown and cooked through. 
  • In the meanwhile, combine all the syrup ingredients in a saucepan and allow to cook for 10 minutes. 
  • When the ring is baked, remove from the oven and brush with the syrup. Allow to cool for 15 minutes then slice and serve.
