Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls (Yeast Free)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I made these today in 'Home Ec' class. These are super YUMMY and quick to make because they have no yeast, so you don't have to wait hours for them to rise. My friend is vegan so our group used powdered milk instead of actual milk. You do not need to use a mixer at all ^_^ Sorry for the form of measurement, the recipe was written in mL's instead of cups-tsp-tbsp.


  1. Preheat oven to 250°C (425°F).
  2. Mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking powered in large bowl.
  3. Cut in margarine until mixture looks like oatmeal or small peas.
  4. Add milk gradually, stirring with a fork. Dough Should come away from sides of bowl.
  5. Knead 3-4 times and then roll into a rectangle (1cm thick) on lightly floured counter.
  6. -Filling-.
  7. Smear margarine over dough coating it not to thick but not to thin.
  8. Sprinkle desired amount of cinnamon on top.
  9. Sprinkle desired amount of brown sugar on top.
  10. Sprinkle desired amount of raisins.
  11. Roll up like a jelly roll, starting from the long edge.
  12. Slice into 1-inch slices and place cut side down in a grease muffin tin.
  13. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

I made these using a GF flour mix. I had to add an egg, but overall they were pretty good! Here are my measurement conversions: 2 c. flour 4 t. baking powder 1/8 c. sugar 4 T. butter 1 c. milk 1 1/2 T Xanthan Gum I also added a topping: 1 c. powdered sugar 1 T. milk 1/2 t. vanilla I'm still working this recipe out, but it is a great base to start with! Thanks!

apparently some people don't know how to convert so here's the recipe simplified...

2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
6 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp 1 tsp margarine
a little under a cup of milk

i used substituted vegan ingredients where needed. these were good to satisfy my morning craving quickly but they aren't very gooey and hearty. it's more of a cinnamon biscuit, but still delicious. :)

Very Nice Indeed :) The dough was easy to put together and baked up nice and tender. For the filling I used 3 tbsp homemade brown sugar (#65271), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 raisins (which were soaked in hot water for a few minutes than squeezed) and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. I ended up with 12 - 1" slices, and baked in a buttered 9 x 13 pan for 20 minutes. I'm going to freeze half of it for later. I'll let you know how it comes out. Thanks Jessica for a very nice recipe. I'll be making this again.
