No Rise (Quick & EASY) Cinnamon Rolls

Pin It

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just forget to get breakfast started the night before!  My kiddos seem to always want things that take overnight to rise.

For the mornings you forget, or just run short on time, these cinnamon rolls are DELISH.  You would never know they were a "short cut" recipe!


2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-4 Tbs milk (depending on how thick you like your glaze)

1 tsp. vanilla 


Preheat oven to 400F.

For the filling, in a small bowl combine softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to form a crumbly mixture.

Sprinkle 1/2 of the mixture over the bottom of a 9x9 pan.

In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Cut in softened butter and mix until well combined.

Stir in milk to form a soft dough.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
Spread the remaining filling on the rolled out dough.

Roll up the rectangle and with a sharp knife slice into 12 rolls.

Place them in the pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

For glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.

Once rolls are finished, drizzle on glaze and serve warm.

  1. Wow. Your kids are unbelievably lucky! I don't cook breakfast except for the occasional Eggo waffle. :) They get toast or cereal or instant oatmeal. I've never been a big breakfast person, but I will definitely be giving these a try for Conference weekend!

  3. Can you use white sugar instead of white? Or is that the reason why It's brown like?

  4. I'm 12 and I love cooking and this recipe is amazing I highly recommend it

  5. i'm not sure what i did wrong but mine taste bad :(

    1. I've made these many times, so sorry they didn't turn out!

  6. My daughter just made these with our gluten free flour tonight. Very good.

  7. Thank you so much for this recipe! I recently went vegan and substituted equal parts of organic coconut oil for the butter and unsweetened almond milk for the milk. I followed the recipe to the letter otherwise and these turned out fabulous! You have made my day!
