Here is a cinnamon roll recipe that you can do from scratch with no yeast included.
Yeast -Free Cinnamon Rolls
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 c. sugar (granulated or brown sugar)
- 3 tsp. cinnamon Glaze
- 1/2 c. confectioner’s sugar
- 1/4 c. milk
In making this homemade cinnamon rolls without yeast, start by preheating the oven to 400 Farenheit In a medium sized bowl, combine the ingredients for the filling. You can opt to use either granulated sugar or brown sugar depending on your personal preference. Once the filling ingredients are mixed, divide into halves. Spread one half of the filling at the bottom of a 9”x9” pan. In separate bowl or container, shift all dry ingredients until well combined. Cut in the butter into the dry ingredients by either using the tines of a fork or just by using your clean and dry hands. Once the butter is mixed, slowly pour the milk into the flour mixture to form a soft dough. On a floured surface, light roll out the dough to a rectangle about 1/4 thick Spread the remaining half of the filling to the dough and roll the dough again until it forms a log. You can now slice your cinnamon rolls by using a knife. If you want bigger portions, slice the rolled up dough into 12 slices and for smaller sizes, you can slice this into 18 slices instead. Bake the cinnamon rolls for around 20 to 25 minutes. While the rolls are baking, combine the ingredients for the glaze.
Some people would prefer a thicker glaze instead of a runny one, try to adjust the amount of powdered sugar in ratio to the milk. Once the rolls are baked, drizzle the glaze on top and serve these warm.
Making this homemade cinnamon rolls without yeast, you can also make some twists to these rolls. Instead of using a glaze on top, others would try other frostings such as cream cheese or even butter cream or use melted butter with sugar for a more rich and flavorful cinnamon roll. For a healthier spin to this recipe, substitute the flour with whole wheat flour and lessen the sugar used.
