No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • Filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
  • Dough:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 6 tablespoons butter (melted and divided)
  • Icing:
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon half & half (more or less depending on how you like the consistency)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously spray 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray (or you can use melted butter).
  2. In a small bowl, stir together both sugars, cinnamon and melted butter. Stir until well combined and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Mix 1 tablespoon of the melted butter in with the buttermilk and add to the flour mixture, stirring to until just combined (dough will still be shaggy). Scoop onto a floured surface and knead until just smooth. Use your hands to press it into a 9×12 rectangle.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons of the melted butter across the rectangle then evenly sprinkle and spread the sugar mixture over butter.
  6. Starting at the long end, roll into a tight cylinder, pinching seam to seal. Cut into 8 equal pieces. Slightly flatten each piece with your hand. Place 1 roll in center of the prepared pan, then place the remaining 7 rolls around the pan. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  7. Bake rolls for about 20 to 23 minutes or until lightly browned.

  8. Combine all the frosting ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth.
  9. Spread icing over warm cinnamon rolls.

Recipe Notes

Yes, the oven temperature is 425 degrees, that's not a typo. If you feel like your oven cooks hot and you're worried about cooking these at 425, then by all means lower your oven temperature. I have never had these burn cooking them in my oven at 425. Just watch them carefully.
