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!
