45 Minute Cinnamon Rolls (Without Yeast)

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!

45 Minute Cinnamon Rolls (Without Yeast)

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 6 Tbsp granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt, divided
  • 8 Tbsp salted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk*
  • 1 recipe Cream Cheese Glaze, recipe follows
  • Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush a 9-inch cake or pie pan with 1 Tbsp melted butter, set aside. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, 2 Tbsp granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt, set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl whisk together light-brown sugar, remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and 1/8 tsp salt. Add in 1 Tbsp melted butter and blend mixture together with your fingertips or a fork until mixture is well blended and evenly moistened, set aside.
  3. Measure out buttermilk into a liquid measuring cup and stir in 2 Tbsp melted butter. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until a shaggy dough forms and liquid has been absorbed, then knead mixture in bowl by hand just until smooth, about 30 seconds (dough will be sticky).
  4. Sprinkle a clean work surface with a fair amount of flour. Pat the dough with your hands into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Brush top of dough with 2 Tbsp melted butter then sprinkle evenly with brown sugar mixture, coming within a 1/2 inch of the border on all sides. Press the brown sugar filling into the dough (they stated "firmly press" in their recipe which didn't make sense to me because then you are flattening your dough and releasing some of the rise the baking powder has already given so I only lightly pressed). Starting on the long side, roll dough (using a bench scraper or metal spatula to loosen dough from work surface if necessary. I didn't need one) snugly and gently to opposite end. Pinch the end seam to seal. Roll the log seam side down and cut dough into 8 equal portions.
  5. Place 1 roll in the center of the prepared baking dish, then place remaining 7 rolls around it. Brush tops of rolls with remaining 2 Tbsp butter. Bake in preheated oven 22 - 25 minutes until edges are golden brown. (After baking you can invert the rolls using a plate onto a wire rack but I just served them without flipping). Serve warm drizzled with Cream Cheese Glaze. Store in an airtight container and reheat in microwave if desired.
  6. *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.

    They don’t look look pretty, but they actually look like they would taste very yummy! All that cinnamon and sugar on bread with cream cheese drizzle sounds yummy! I’ll will have to give it a try sometime soon. I am sure your dad would enjoy them :O)

      Truly they don’t. I can’t wait to make these again, and “try” to make the pretty. Maybe I’ll update the picture here if I can achieve this! ;)

      Thank you for pinning! :) They are rather yummy. I was saddened they didn’t turn out pretty, but the taste was SO delicious! The cream cheese topping was a great addition too. :)
