My No-Yeast Cinnamon Rolls recipe can be made from start to finish in about an hour for fluffy, ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls in no time at all!
Pre-heat the oven to 400°F (200°C), then butter and line a 10 inch round tin. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until evenly combined. Set aside while making the dough.
To make the dough combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Next, add in the cold cubed butter and rub it in using your fingertips until you've reached the texture of coarse breadcrumbs.
In a separate jug combine the sour cream, egg yolks*, and vanilla.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry then gently stir until just combined. (Read paragraph above about wet doughs.)
Once the dough has come together into a smooth ball, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface.
Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a 16 x 12 inch rectangle.
Spoon the cinnamon filling onto dough and spread evenly with back of spoon. Spread filling as evenly as possible over the dough to within 1 inch of edges.
Beginning from the long side, tightly roll the dough into a log. Using a sharp, serrated knife, cut the dough into 12 slices each measuring 1-1/2 inches thick. Place slices, cut side down, in prepared pan. There should be 9 rolls on the outside and 3 on the inside (At this point you can refrigerate the rolls and bake them off the following day if you wish).
Bake rolls for 30-35 minutes or until the rolls have puffed up, the filling is bubbly and top crust is golden brown.
While the cinnamon rolls are baking make your glaze: In a large bowl combine the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla. Whisk together until smooth then set aside.
Once the cinnamon rolls are done remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
While still warm spoon over the glaze making sure to cover each roll generously in glaze. Enjoy straight away! Store leftovers in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Egg substitute: 4 tablespoons of sour cream or yogurt
