Easy Cinnamon Rolls Without Yeast

Here is my promised recipe for Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls without yeast. Now I know you think that you cannot possibly make Cinnamon Rolls without yeast, but I guarantee you they are just as good as the ones with yeast, if not better and way easier! They are delicious and will definitely be a hit among your family and friends.



2 cups (500ml) Self Raising Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 cup (125ml) Melted Butter (unsalted)
2/3 cup (175ml) Milk
1 tbsp Vanilla Essence


3 tbsp Melted Butter
1/4 cup White Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
3tbsp Cinnamon


1/2 cup (125ml) Icing Sugar
1 tbsp Water

Mix all the ingredients for the dough together and work till it is a nice soft dough ball (not sticky) - use extra flour if needed to get it to the right consistency. Roll dough out on flat surface till it is about 2cm thick and a rectangular shape.
Mix all the ingredients for the filling together and smear it on the rolled out dough. Make sure to cover every part and the corners too.
Roll the dough into a log - take care not to let the filling spill.
Cut the log into 2 cm pieces. Place on a prepared baking sheet (remember the baking paper), place it about 2 cm appart.
Bake for 10-15 minutes in a 200 degree celcius oven till golden brown.

Once they have cooled down you can drizzle them with the glaze.

You might want to double up...it is that good!

Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls

There is nothing better than delicious, warm, fresh Cinnamon Rolls just out of the oven, and the best part is that you dont have to slave in the kitchen for hours to enjoy these divine Cinnamon Rolls.

They are so quick to make, I have a fresh batch of Cinnamon Rolls ready to enjoy with some coffee on the beach for a weekend breakfast in less than 15 minutes.

Ok, I admit I do cheat a little by buying the bread dough from the local bakery, but I have made my own dough before (with yeast) and it taste just the same. When I do make the Cinnamon Rolls without the yeast again, I will blog it, as it is a bit different, but also very very delicious.


1 kg Bread Dough


3 tbsp soft Butter
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
3 tbsp grounded Cinnamon
1 tbsp Honey


1/2 cup Icing Sugar
1 tbsp Milk

Roll out the bread dough with rolling pin into a rectangular shape of 2cm thick.
Mix all the ingredients for filling together.
Smear the filling on the bread dough.
Roll the bread dough with filling into a log.
Cut the log into pieces 2 cm thick.
Place the buns 2 cm away from each other on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 -15 minutes in a 200 degree celcius oven. Put some baking paper on the baking sheet as it will be sticky and messy.
When the rolls are nice and brown you can remove them from the oven and let them cool for 2 minutes before you drizzle them with the glaze.

Makes about 12 Cinnamon Rolls

Tip: You can bake the whole log in the oven and then cut it into slices once it has cooled down and then drizzle with the glaze - as I have done (see picture) the baking time will increase by about 10 minutes if you do bake the whole log.

It is so quick and easy, you will want to have Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast every morning!
