  • Butter
  • Cinnamon
  • White sugar
  • Whisked egg

Preparation method

Cinnamon Star
  1. Open the Danerolles cans and roll out the two dough rolls.
  2. Cut each dough piece into half. You now have 4 halves; two from each can.
  3. Roll a flat pancake out of two halves. In total you will have two flat pancakes.
  4. Lubricate one circle with some butter and cinnamon. Put the second circle on top of the lubcricated circle.
  5. Place a glass of water in the middle of the circle and start cutting the dough into quarters moving from the glass to the outside of the circle. Cut each quarter in halves again. You now have 8 triangles
  6. Cut the 8 triangles in halves again such that you get 16 small triangles.
  7. Take two neighbouring pieces of dough in  your hands and twist them to the outside. Twist 2 times. Then squeeze the outsides of the dough together to create 1 twisted piece of dough. Continue all the way around.
  8. Top with some whisked egg and white sugar for a nice shine
  9. Bake for 20-25min at 180C until golden brown.
