Banana caramel scrolls
- 1Combine hot coffee and sultanas in a heatproof bowl; stand 1 hour. Drain well; discard coffee. Pat sultanas dry on paper towel.
- 2Preheat oven to 190ºC/375ºF. Line a large oven tray with baking paper.
- 3Using your fingertips, rub softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
- 4Process flour, baking powder, caster sugar and three-quarters of the walnuts until nuts are finely ground. Add cold butter; process until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add to a large bowl.
- 5Mash banana in a small bowl; you will need ⅓ cup. Whisk egg and buttermilk into mashed banana. Pour banana mixture over dry ingredients. Using a flat-bladed knife, cut banana mixture through flour mixture to make a soft dough.
- 6Roll dough on a piece of well-floured baking paper into a 25cm x 32cm (10-inch x 12¾-inch) rectangle. Scatter sugar mixture and sultanas over dough. Using paper as a guide, roll up dough from one long edge. Flouring a sharp serrated knife, between each cut, cut roll into 10 pieces. Using your hands, reshape slices slightly so they are round, rather than oval. Place slices, cut-side up, 4cm (1½ inches) apart on tray.
- 7Bake scrolls 25 minutes or until golden and risen. Immediately brush top and side of each scroll with caramel; scatter with remaining chopped walnuts. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
If the roll feels too soft to slice, place it in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up. These scrolls are best eaten on the day of making.
