I love this recipe! Perfect for those who are in a hurry. No yeast, no dough-punching, no waiting for it to rise! Perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert. To make my cinnamon rolls more unique, I decided to experiment and add some peanut butter and coffee to the dough and glaze.The rolls turned out delicious! My friends went insane for them!

  • 3 tbs sugar,
  • 1¼ tsp baking powder,
  • ½ tsp baking soda,
  • ½ tsp salt,
  • 2 tbs peanut butter,
  • 1 cup whole milk,
  • ¼ cup heavy cream,
  • 4 tbs butter, melted,
  • 2 tbs butter, softened

  • 3 tsp cinnamon,
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract,
  • 3-4 tbs butter, melted
  • pinch of salt,


  • 4 oz. cream cheese,
  • 2 tbs peanut butter,
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream,
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened,
  • 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar,
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules,
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. Add in vanilla, peanut butter and the 2-3 tbs melted butter. Mix until well combined.


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease the bottom of a cake pan. Set aide.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add milk, heavy cream and the melted butter.
  3. Mix it into dry ingredients until just combined, then knead with your hands.

  5. Brush 3-4 tbs softened butter onto the entire surface of the dough and spread filling evenly onto dough and lightly press it.
  6. Tightly roll up the dough to form a log.
  7. Cut into large equal portions and place into the greased pan.
  8. Brush the tops with the remaining melted butter.
  9. Place rolls in the oven and allow to bake at 425°F for about 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350°F and allow to bake about 5-10 more minutes.

    I love the taste of cinnamon. In fact, today I ate a cinnamon dough nut which is not as tasty as cinnamon rolls.

  2. Wonderful! And the best part is that you can enjoy them in just 30 minutes.

    peanut butter in your glaze, what?!? that sounds DELICIOUS! no cinnamon roll is a bad cinnamon roll, as far as i’m concerned. 🙂

  17. kiedy oglądam zdjęcia takich pyszności, wciąż muszę sobie powtarzać: “pamiętaj, nie możesz teraz jeść takich rzeczy, pamiętaj…” 🙂 nie wiem jednak jak silna byłaby moja wola, gdybyś postawiła mi je przed nosem! 🙂

  18. You had me at no yeast! These cinnamon rolls looks fabulous, and so quick and easy.
