Quick Cinnamon Rolls

Quick Cinnamon Rolls
So, I know I just posted cinnamon roll muffins.
I realize you're probably thinking this is just a tad too similar, am I right?

Well OK, yes, these are cinnamon rolls made in muffin cups. And yes, they are a quicker, easier way to get your cinnamon roll fix in the morning. HOWEVER-these are much more like a real, classic cinnamon roll. They just don't rise or involve yeast. So, ya know, you can get these babies in your belly ASAP!

I actually preferred these to the muffins (Michael however liked the muffins better). I enjoy how they're really no different than a normal cinnamon roll, they're just more dense, obviously. But I don't mind that! The glaze is phenomenal as well. You will absolutely love all the cinnamon-sugar goodness without all the waiting.

Oh and I even used partial whole wheat flour when making these, and they turned out great. So that's an option. :)

Quick Cinnamon Rolls
Makes 12
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk/buttermilk substitute
  • 3-3.5 cups all purpose flour (I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 2-2.5 cups AP)
  • 5 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk/cream
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
Quick Cinnamon Rolls
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Either grease or line a muffin tin or get 12 paper bakeware muffin cups/ramekins out.
  • In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar together for the filling.
  • In a medium bowl mix brown sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and egg. Add buttermilk and then the flour (start with 3 cups and then add more as needed). Stir until combined and not too sticky.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 1-2 minutes.
Quick Cinnamon Rolls
  • Roll dough into a 12"x24" rectangle. Spread the butter over the dough (leaving a small border around the edges) and sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture evenly across the dough.
  • Roll the dough into a log (starting with a long side)-stretch it slightly to keep the seam tight as you roll.
  • Cut the log in half, then halve each half. Cut each quarter into 3 pieces to created 12 rolls total.
  • Place rolls in the muffin cups.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Allow cinnamon rolls to cool for 5 minutes and then move them to a cooling rack.
  • Whisk together the ingredients for the icing and drizzle over the cinnamon rolls.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container, can be reheated.
