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!
