Whole Wheat Cinnamon Spirals



  • Wheat Flour - 2 cups
  • Vital Wheat Gluten - 1tbs optional
  • Olive Oil-2 tbs
  • Salt-3/4 tsp
  • Milk Powder-3 tbs
  • Instant Yeast-1 tsp
  • Cardamom Powder-1/2 tsp
  • cup Water-3/4+ 2 tbs

For Filling

  • Butter/ Ghee-1 tbs
  • Cinnamon Sugar-4 tbs



  • In a bowl mix together wheat flour, gluten, salt, yeast, milk powder and cardamom powder.
  • Add olive oil and 3/4 cup of water.
  • Mix well.
  • Add more water if necessary. Prepare soft and sticky dough.
  • Transfer to counter and knead. Though it will be sticky at first, it will come to the perfect consistency after a minute. So do not add extra flour for dusting. This will harden the dough.
  • Knead for 8-10 minutes until soft and smooth.
  • Transfer to a bowl and coat it with oil.
  • Cover with cling wrap and set aside for one hour to one and a half hours depending upon the climate of your place. Let the dough double in volume.
  • Transfer dough to counter and press it to remove air.
  • Divide it into four equal portions.
  • Roll each portion into a thick disc. Place it on a greased baking tray.
  • Apply one third of butter and sprinkle one third of cinnamon sugar.
  • Repeat with the other portions. Leave the final dough without any topping.
  • Now with a knife, cut the disc into four equal triangles without cutting the outer circle.
  • Now slit each triangle into three, so that the discs have so many triangles with a common outer ring.
  • Lift each triangle and twist it thrice and place it again on the tray in its usual place.
  • If you feel that it is very congested then try to spread the outer ring so that the disc becomes larger with lots of space in between the triangle.
  • Once all the segments are twisted, cover with wrap and set aside for 30 minutes for the second proving. Brush the top with milk for a nice colour.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.
  • Remove from tray and serve immediately.


P.S: If you don't have cinnamon sugar, then mix together 2 tbs of powdered cinnamon with three tbs of granulated sugar and use.
If you have milk, then omit milk powder and water and substitute with 3/4 cup + 2 tbs of milk.
