Sticky Biscuits

If you fancy something like cinnamon rolls but don't have time or couldn't be bothered to make a proper yeasted dough, then this recipe is an ideal solution... And in my case (and opinion)what made these biscuits fantastic is the glaze which partly absorbed into the biscuits and provided such a beautiful taste ! Heaven...hhhmmmm

The recipe (adapted from here)


For the Glaze

1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon finely grated orange rind

For the Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup whole milk

For the Filling
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice


1. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a small, heavy saucepan, bring the glaze ingredients to a boil, spoon the mixture into the prepared pan so it completely covers the bottom, and set aside.


1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).

2. To make the biscuits, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the oil and milk till well blended, pour into the well, and stir just till a soft dough forms.

3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and roll into an 18 x 10-inch rectangle.


1. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the filling ingredients, then sprinkle evenly over the rectangle. Starting from the short side, roll up the rectangle jelly-roll style into an 18-inch-long log, slice into 9 biscuits 2-inches thick, arrange the biscuits cut side down in 3 rows in the glazed pan, and bake till puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

2. Invert the pan immediately onto a large platter so the glaze runs down over the biscuits and serve hot/warm.
