Perfect Cinnamon Rolls

“Cinnamon bites and kisses simultaneously” ~Vanna Bonta

Ever want a cinnamon roll NOW? Not in three hours, not tomorrow.. but almost immediately, and preferably hot! These yeast free cinnamon rolls melt in your mouth and they are ready in less than an hour. I dislike the taste of baking soda in most baked goods, and I hate the wait time for yeast doughs. These rolls are made with baking powder instead. If you prefer a firmer dough, add an egg.

Ingredients for dough:

2 cups flour

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp butter

3/4 cup milk

1 egg (optional)

Ingredients for Cinnamon mix:

4 tbsp butter

1 cup brown sugar

3 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine all ingredients for the dough in one bowl and stir. No need to separate wet and dry. When ingredients are combined, knead dough for a minute or two to get the right texture and roll it out on a very lightly floured surface until it is approximately a half inch thick.

Combine all ingredients for cinnamon mix in another smaller bowl and mix very throughly. Spread half of this mixture in the bottom of  the pan you will be using, and spread the other half on the dough.

Roll up the dough and slice into half inch to one inch slices to make the cinnamon rolls, placing each one in the pan on top of the cinnamon mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes or until done. When cooking is completed, remove the cinnamon buns from the pan immediately. Serve hot or cooled.

“I like cinnamon rolls, but I don’t always have time to make a pan. That’s why I wish they would sell cinnamon roll incense. After all I’d rather light a stick and have my roommate wake up with false hopes.” ~Mitch Hedberg
