Cinnamon Rolls by The Geargoyle

I just wanted to share with you all that the cinnamon rolls are a great success! My little guy helped with the mixing, and we had a lot of fun. These grew a bunch, and boy are they sweet and yummy! I worked from the ‘no yeast’ recipe at MomsWhoThink.com ( Link ) with some small modifications. The dough and filling were pretty much as they had them, but since I didn’t have the stuff for cream cheese frosting I just whipped up a simple icing (1 cup confectioner’s sugar with about 1 or 2 Tbsp. of milk, stirred until smooth – you can add a little vanilla if you like, just cut back on the milk.) I left a few without icing since my hubby likes them less sweet. As a warning: I had some of the cinnamon-sugar filling bubble up out of my cake tin, so you might want to put a cookie sheet on the rack below these when they bake.

Anyone who likes cinnamon rolls should try this recipe. The taste could give those fancy mall stores a run for their money. With such simple, cheap ingredients, you can whip these up any time you’re having a sweet tooth attack!

Cinnamon Rolls (without yeast)

Ingredients:

Dough:

2 and 1/2  cups flour, plus extra for your counter
2  Tbsp regular sugar
1 and 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 1/4 cups buttermilk  (if you don’t have it, add a tsp of vinegar to regular milk)
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and divided

Filling:

3/4 cup packed brown sugar – I used light, they called for dark
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Directions:

1. Heat your oven to 425°. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan and set aside.

2. Combine the filling ingredients until it looks like damp sand. Set aside for later.

3. Mix the dough: In a large bowl, stir together the first five dry ingredients.

4. In another bowl, mix the buttermilk and 2 Tbsp of the melted butter together.

5. Mix the wet mixture into the dry mixture until combined. The dough will be a bit wet and sticky.

6. Flour your counter and hands well, then knead the dough until smooth, it only takes about a minute.

7. Shape the dough into a 9 by 12 inch rectangle using your hands or a floured rolling pin.

8. Brush 2 Tbsp of the melted butter onto the dough, then sprinkle on the filling, leaving a little border. Press the filling onto the dough.

9. Loosen the dough from the counter with a spatula or piece of plain dental floss.

10. Roll the dough into a log from a long side, pressing lightly to seal the seam.

11. Slice the dough into 8 even pieces and place in your cake pan. There will be some room between them, but they will grow.

12. Brush the tops with the remaining 2 Tbsp of melted butter. Bake until the edges are golden brown, 20-25 minutes.

13. Loosen the buns from the pan with a knife and flip them out onto a wire rack. Turn the buns upright and cool them about 10 minutes before frosting (if desired) with simple icing or cream cheese frosting. (Frosting recipe is at MomsWhoThink.com, link above.)

    naturally like your web site but you have to take a look at
    the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them
    are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to
    tell the truth on the other hand I will surely come back

    logical. But, think about this, suppose you were to write a
    awesome title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something to possibly get a person’s
    attention? I mean Cinnamon Rolls | The Geargoyle’s Roost is kinda plain.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article
    headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video
    or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
