I’ve been eyeing these 45 minute cinnamon rolls for a while. What I liked was that they didn’t have yeast, therefore didn’t NEED to rise for a few hours. I have not ventured into the yeast realm just yet. Not sure I’m ready for that jump. Until then, I’ll be the quick bread lover!
In a sense this is like quick bread, but then totally not.
I’ll admit the dough wasn’t the easiest to work with. I flopped on one thing, and that was the pan. I should have just gone with my 8″ one, as I don’t have a 9″ one. I used the 9″ x 13″. Made for a little more flat cinnamon rolls, BUT the taste was still very good. I’ll be making these again.
Have you heard of a Pinterest fail? Well, in terms of looks, this is one of those, but the taste is a win. The orginal recipe is found over at Cooking Classy. Her pictures are wonderful!
If you have 45 minutes, you might want to try these.
I mixed up the dry ingredients. Somehow I need to figure out how to make the flash not get MORE intense with my metal bowls!
Mixed up the middle part.
Added the little bit of butter to the middle part. Whisking seemed to work good here.
Made up some buttermilk. Classy Cook had a tip at the end of her blog on how to make a sub for this, if you find you don’t have any on hand.
*If you don’t have buttermilk you can use 1 cup + 3 Tbsp milk and 1 Tbsp vinegar, whisk it together and let rest 2 minutes. That’s actually what I did this time around because I was out of buttermilk.
Added the buttermilk to the dry ingredients. Dough is VERY sticky.
Laid out the dough on a floured surface, and buttered it.
Added the yummy middle.
And rolled. (This was a bit hard, as the dough is VERY sticky. Next time I’ll add a bit more flour)
Placed them in a buttered pan.
And voila! Not the prettiest, but still rather yummy! I do believe the pan would have held them up better had I used the correct size.
I dumped them out. haha Here’s the “pile”. ;)
I then made up the cream cheese topping. This is delicious!!!!!
Added it to the best looking roll I had. Which was ONLY one.
So my tip? Use the correct pan, and MAYBE a bit more flour to firm up the dough. Other then that, this is really worth it! It did not take long considering it’s a cinnamon roll.
My family loved them. Well except Noah. For some odd reason he was completely turned off by them. He never even tried them!!! Crazy boy!
