The Christmas Bake: Cinnamon Buns (Yeast Free!)

Can you tell I love my grub at Christmas? Well, the whole year round, actually. But I'm content in that fact I'm positive I'm not the only one guilty of over-indulging at Christmas. So with that, let me tempt you with the second food post of this week! Things got unbelievably messy in my kitchen (I'm not a natural baker, but I try) with these Cinnamon Buns, but the recipe is in fact super simple and contains no yeast. Ain't nobody got time to wait for things to prove...If you're me.

Prep time: 30 Minutes (depending. I took my sweet time)
Cook time: 20-25 Minutes
Tin: 9x9"

(The recipe I followed was American measurements, but you can convert them over via GOOGLE)


4 Tbsp Butter
1cup Brown Sugar
3 tsp Ground Cinnamon


2cup Plain Flour
2 Tbsp Sugar
4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Softened Butter
3/4cup Milk


129g Icing Sugar
1 Tbsp Warm Water


1/ For the filling. Combine the softened butter, brown sugar and ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread half of the mixture over the base of your tin.

2/ For the dough. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in softened butter and stir in the milk to form the soft dough.

3/ Roll the dough out on a little floured surface - you know the drill. Roll to 1/4" in thickness.

4/ Spread the remainder of the cinnamon filling across the dough and roll. Then cut into pieces. You should get from 12-18 depenedning on size. I got 9 - due to a mishap in cinnamon spreading and only covering half the dough - doh!

5/ Place the rolls in your 9x9" tin and bake at gas mark 6 for around 20-25 minutes.

6/ Mix up your glaze. Add 129g of icing sugar in a bowl (preferably through a sieve, but I didn't have one and it went just a smooth) and add 1Tbsp of warm water. Add more/less water depending on the thickness you're after!

7/ Once the rolls are ready and slightly cooled, drizzle over your glaze (In my case, take a few photos) and then tuck in! They're at their gooiest when served warm.

There you have it! A simple YEAST FREE recipe to delicious and gooey cinnamon buns! Let me know if you like these kinds of post and I'll whip up some more! Goodness knows, I could do with the practise...
