Last year, a family member came from Egypt to visit us in Australia, and during her time here she made what was by far the most delicious cinnamon scroll recipe I’ve EVER had the pleasure of eating! What made her cinnamon scrolls so great? Well, they were really small, so the bread didn’t dull the taste of the gorgeous filling, which was PACKED with spices and then it was all drenched in a thick, gooey glaze. So when I decided that I was going to bake Speculaas Spiced Pear Scrolls, I knew Latifas little masterpieces were to be my inspiration. So, I kept the scrolls small, I almost tripled the recommended amount of spice for a LARGE scroll, and then I drenched the finished product in an oober sticky glaze… and they turned out to be quite the treat if I do say so myself! The small chunks of pear nestled within this pear roll offer a welcome burst of sweetness in amongst the powerful Dutch spices, and the freshly baked bread makes for a soft and fluffy base on which all the flavours can be happily married.
