ingredients to make cinnamon rolls

How to make cinnamon rolls without yeast

Step 1: First, start by making the cinnamon roll dough. Add the greek yogurt and 2 cups of self rising flour to a bowl and mix with a rubber spatula, and use your hands to combine once the spatula cannot mix anymore.

Add an additional up to ¾ cup of self rising flour until the dough is no longer sticky to the touch, but not dry. (I used the full 2 ¾ cups, but depending on the climate of your kitchen it may not need that much). Form the dough into a ball.

Step 2: Make the cinnamon sugar filling. Melt the butter and mix with the can sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon to form the filling.

Step 3: Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and place the dough on top of the flour. Flour your rolling pin and begin to roll out the dough.

If it sticks to the countertop, sprinkle flour onto the dough and roll it out. It will help to flip the dough several times as you roll it to size, and sprinkle a little flour on top each time.

Step 4: Use a rubber brush to spread the cinnamon sugar filling over the dough evenly.

Step 5: Start at one the end of dough and tightly roll it up, forming a log shape.

Step 6: Cut the dough into pieces using a sharp knife or dental floss. Depending on what size cinnamon rolls you want, you should end up with 10 large or 11 – 12 medium sized cinnamon rolls.

Step 7: Spray a 9 by 13 baking dish with cooking spray and place the cinnamon rolls in it, leaving a little space between for the rolls to expand while baking.

Step 8: Bake the no rise cinnamon rolls at 350 degrees for 25 – 35 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned.

Allow to cool 10 minutes untouched.

Making the cream cheese icing

Step 9: make the homemade cream cheese icing for the cinnamon rolls.

Beat the softened cream cheese and greek yogurt. Add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar and whip until smooth.

Step 10: Spread the frosting over the cinnamon rolls after they have cooled for 10 minutes.

Enjoy warm and store any leftover rolls in the fridge in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap.

From start to finish this recipe is ready in just about an hour and will seriously impress. Made from scratch cinnamon rolls just got a lot easier!

This breakfast treat will be on our holiday table for sure this year.
