Easy Cinnamon Rolls

And I mean easy!  This is a no yeast dough so it is quick.  I have been wanting to try this for years and then when I want to make them I can't find the recipe.  Somehow it always seems to elude me, like the missing sock in the dryer!

Well today I found it...then lost it!  Believe me I couldn't comprehend where it had gone.  We looked everywhere.  A good 20 minutes later my husband found my BFF's favorite scone recipe on the kitchen counter so I walked in and DUH...I had put it on the bread machine so I wouldn't misplace it!!!  Needless to say I started making them right away...& as usual, yes I did, I tweaked the recipe.  It turned out 100% better than the way they said to do it.  So get ready to bake because you will want these ASAP!!!

Easy Cinnamon Rolls
Preheat oven 400 degrees
Adapted from Grandma's Kitchen

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 TBSP baking powder (yes TBSP)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
8 TBSP butter (1 stick) softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 TBSP cinnamon

1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt & baking soda in a medium bowl & mix well.  Stir in vegetable oil.  Add buttermilk & stir until just blended.

2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.  roll dough into a 15 x 8 inch rectangle.  Lightly grease a 9 inch round baking dish.

3. Combine softened butter, brown sugar & cinnamon.  Mix well until smooth paste like consistency.  Spread this over your entire rolled out dough.  Roll up rectangle jelly roll style starting from one end & pinch seam to seal.

4. Cut the roll into one 1 1/2 inch slices.  Arrange the slices, cut side up, in prepared baking dish.  Bake until lightly browned, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Serve hot.

I made an easy powdered sugar and milk glaze to dip or pour over the top.  A cream cheese and powdered sugar would also be good on these...Enjoy~
