Yummy and Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

Before I start with this post, I want to offer a warning. There will be pictures from years ago and I will have a few current ones. Just don’t let it freak you out. Little things like that don’t really disturb me they actually do but I didn’t feel like taking new pictures. I mean, why should they well, they do because I’m just weird like that ? This picture is from a few years ago. The ingredients are the same with the exception that I now use aluminum-free baking powder.

My children have been helping me make this recipe for many years. Add the flour.

Next comes the baking powder.

You can meticulously measure it like River or just scoop it and toss it in like me.

Somewhere in there before Canyon started mixing everything, salt and baking soda were also added.

Add the vegetable oil.

I make two batches. One using soy milk and the other using buttermilk. Buttermilk is used in the recipe you see here.

You could use a mixer to make these, but it mixes well by hand. If you don’t want to mix it yourself, then there is always a solution if you are a mommy. Got children, you got mixers.

Strictly for the cute factor, but it makes for a nice transition to pictures circa 2011.

Remember my tips before you roll out your dough. Also, it does not have to be squared or perfectly shaped. If you roll out your dough to at least 1/2 thick, thne your cinnamon rolls will be thick and cake like; yummy.

You are going to have to zap the butter or melt it over the stove so that…

you can easily brush it over the dough.

This is your sugar and cinnamon mixture accentuated with the special ingredient cardamom. The cardamom turns a regular old cinnamon and sugar mixture into something really special.

Sprinkle the cinnamon, sugar, and cardamom mixture over the dough.

You may have some left over. Save it and seal it to use later on more cinnamon rolls or on a piece of toast or on some ice cream or in some tea or coffee or or or…that’s all.

Roll the dough up in a jelly roll fashion.

It doesn’t have to be tightly rolled and also don’t worry about how attractive the roll looks after rolling to the end. Once they come out of the oven, you will never remember how good or bad they looked before baking.

Cut the roll into pieces.

Place them into your baking pan leaving a little bit of space as shown. Hopefully, these babies will expand so leave them some room to grow.

Yep! Just as I said. They become really big and fluffy (pull them apart and you’ll see) and almost ready to eat, but they need just one more thing and then they will be perfect.

They need some icing that is simple and quick to make. This icing is straight up sugar and it’s good! Add your powdered sugar to a small bowl.

Add your milk. Soy or dairy works and taste just fine.

Mix, mix, mix, until it blends together.

You’ll know it’s right when it becomes smooth and creamy looking just like this.

Drizzle to your hearts content and these babies are ready to eat.

Adapted from a Grandmas Kitchen recipe.
2 cups flour
1 1/2 TBS baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cardamom
  3/8 cup vegetable oil
1 1/8 cup buttermilk
4 TBS butter (add one more TBS if needed)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium size mixing bowl.
3. Sift using a whisk or mix well using a spoon.
4. Add the vegetable oil.
5. Add the milk.
6. Stir mixture with a spoon until everything is well blended.
7. Place dough on a floured surface and knead it for a while.
8. Melt butter for spread.
9. Mix together the cinnamon, sugar, and cardamom.
10. Brush the melted butter over the dough.
11. Sprinkle cinnamon evenly mixture over the dough.
12. Roll dough up in a jelly roll fashion.
13. Cut roll into 1 1/2 slices.
14. Place the cinnamon rolls into a greased baking pan.
15. Bake for about 10-15 minutes. Make sure tops are slightly brown or cook a little longer if you would like. The icing softens them up a little bit.
16. Drizzle icing immediately after removing them from the oven.

1 cup powdered sugar   2 1/2 TBS milk

Make the icing while the cinnamon rolls are baking.
1. Add the powder sugar to a small bowl.
2. Add milk and sift with the powdered sugar.
3. Drizzle over the cinnamon rolls immediately after removing them from the oven.

There is nothing more to do other than eat and enjoy.

    I’m dropping by on the TOS Blog walk. Your website is amazing! I’m glad I visited when I did. Our family enjoys homemade cinnamon buns but the recipe we’ve been using makes way more than we could eat (we share :-)) and it’s not a quick fixer. Yeast. Enough said, lol


    Thanks for dropping by and I appreciate the compliment. Although I do make my bread from scratch using yeast, it was nice finding a cinnamon roll recipe that is so quick and easy to make without all of the yeast activity. Yeast is not such a bother to use, but mixing a few ingredients and being done to get to eat these cinnamon rolls is the way to go.

    Thanks for going back in time. I have been looking for a homemade cinnamon roll recipe. We are doing this this week. I just make pumpkin muffins last night and there is only on left.


    Let me know how you like this cinnamon roll recipe. Also, did you hide the last pumpkin muffin and save it for yourself?

    I have never made homemade cinnamon rolls before, but they’ve been on my mind a lot lately. Actually, I was wondering if there’s a way to sneak some Nutella into them.


    Nutella. I almost bought some today, but I was afraid. We’re working our way through a few jars of natural peanut butter and I’m not up for anymore “different/new tastes.” If you must, then I’m sure Nutella could be spread on the dough in some manner. I would even try to melt it first (isn’t it like peanut butter thickness?) and then spread it. Do me a favor first. Make the cinnamon rolls like the recipe and then try the “yummy” Nutella version.

    This looks and sounds AWESOME! I wonder how they’d work with rice drink instead of soy milk or buttermilk. Hmmmm…. Guess I’ll just have to try it and find out! Your kids are adorable.
