Simple Cinnamon Rolls

This morning we had reason to celebrate, Geoff is happy to report more work from Disney over the next few months. So what better way to start the day then cinnamon buns? But starting late in the morning, you can forget yeast-raised treats! So I pulled out my Brunch cookbook and found a recipe- Simple Cinnamon Rolls. They are perfect! And easy when you’re pressed for time. I’ve gone ahead and taken the liberty to change a few things. I don’t keep self-rising flour on hand, and after a quick google search, found the right equivalents. And the flour quantity was really wonky. And I have my own ideas about the filling. Oh, and I forgot to separate the eggs, so I just used whole eggs.


So here you go with my version:

Miche’s Simple Cinnamon Rolls

3 1/2 cups flour (or so…)
1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 cup milk


1/4 cup butter, softened (to spread)
1 tsp  ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar


1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp boiling water
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch round pan. Mix dry ingredients together. Whisk butter, egg and milk together and combine with dry ingredients to make a soft dough (I think I used more flour). Roll out onto floured surface to approx 10*12 inches. Spread with butter, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice into approx 8 pieces. Bake 30-35 mins. Mix frosting and spread over warm buns. Enjoy!

  1. I always change recipes! Glad I’m not the only one! This recipe sounds yummy! I never have cream cheese in the fridge, might have to change that… 🙂

  2. Ummm, 3/4 cup butter in 8 rolls? So, does this fall into the healthy baking or treat baking catagory? 🙂 Maybe the delicious catagory. Good news about the work! Yay!
