  • Vortex Air Fryer


  • Dough:
  • 125 ml warm milk
  • 12 g dried yeast
  • 50 g sugar
  • 350 g strong white bread flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 40 g melted butter
  • Filling:
  • 150 g mincemeat
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Icing:
  • 30 g cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 15 g softened butter
  • 90 g icing sugar


  • Add 1 tsp sugar to the milk and whisk in the yeast, then set aside for 5 minutes so a froth forms.
  • Add the remaining dough ingredients into a large bowl, give the yeast mixture another quick whisk and add to the dry ingredients. Then mix into a soft dough.
  • Once mixed, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes, then put in a warm place, covered whilst it proves.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead it lightly for another minute before rolling into an oblong shape. (approx. 12 x 15 inches.) The dough will be quite springy but can be gently pulled into shape between rolling.
  • Mix the filling ingredients together, and then spread evenly over the dough.
  • Starting with one of the longer sides carefully roll the dough keeping it as tight as possible wrapping the filling inside then cut the dough into 12 equal portions.
  • Line the Vortex basket with baking paper and arrange the swirls directly onto the paper leaving a small gap between each.
  • With the Vortex turned off, put the basket back in and leave to prove for 25 minutes.
  • Once the dough has doubled again, turn the Vortex on and select the Bake function, setting the temperature to 171℃ and the time for 13 minutes. Once the Vortex finishes, remove the basket and carefully lift the whirls out, keeping them on the baking paper.
  • In a bowl, mix the icing ingredients together until smooth, then glaze the whirls whilst they're still hot.
