Cinnamon Bun Recipe

I have been asked to share the cinnamon bun recipe I used in a previous post. Here it is! Enjoy!

No-Yeast Cinnamon Buns - found on Pinterest!

Preheat oven to 425ºF.

  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Mix filling ingredients in a small bowl and stir with a fork until blended; set aside.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour, plus more for rolling out dough
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk OR 1 cup milk and a tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
  • 7 tablespoons butter, melted
To make the dough, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of the melted butter. 
Pour over the dry ingredients, and stir together with a wooden spoon until it forms a scraggly-looking dough.
Knead a few times until it becomes smooth.
Separate the dough into two balls. On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to flatten out one of the balls .Sprinkle an even amount of cinnamon-sugar filling over each flattened piece of dough.

Gently pat the filling into dough
Roll each filled dough into a log
Cut each rolled log into eight equal pieces, you should have 16 rolls in total now. 

Using a pastry brush, coat an 11-inch by 8-inch rectangular glass or ceramic baking pan with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter.
Arrange cut rolls in the pan, and press down with your hand to flatten slightly. Brush tops with the remaining melted butter.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown and filling is bubbling from the top.

Cream Cheese Icing: 
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup (79 grams) icing sugar
You can always just use regular icing too!

Drizzle icing over cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.

YU-MMY! Enjoy!
