These are a fast and easy alternative to the conventional yeast cinnamon rolls. Since there is no "rise time" they are in the oven in a jiffy! Make sure your floured surface is well covered and keep flour handy as the dough is a bit sticky if you don't have enough flour! It makes 8-9 rolls in a 8x8 or 9 inch round pan. Perfect for a quick breakfast! Enjoy!

How To Make no yeast cinnamon rolls

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 and grease a 8x8 square or 9 inch round pan. Mix dry ingredients for the rolls in a large bowl.
  • 2
    Mix wet ingredients together in a separate small bowl. Mix wet into dry and mix well.
  • 3
    On a heavily floured board turn out dough and knead until smooth. Roll into a 9 x 11 rectangle. Brush dough with 2 table spoons of melted butter.
  • 4
    Mix the Cinnamon Sugar filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Sprinkle them on the rectangle leaving about 1/2 inch from all edges. Begin rolling the dough from the longest end. Roll as tight as possible.
  • 5
    Cut dough roll into 8-9 even pieces. A very sharp knife makes this easier.
  • 6
    Place the cut rolls into the greased pan. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. While rolls are baking, combine ingredients for the frosting. Let the rolls cool 5-10 minutes after baking before putting the icing on.
