Cinnamon Buns

One of my favorite breakfast treats would have to be cinnamon buns. I never make them because traditional cinnamon buns require yeast and if you’ve ever baked you know yeast can be tricky. Plus, it takes forever having to wait for it to rise and blah blah blah. Well have no fear, yeast free cinnamon buns are here! They’re quick, easy, delicious, and even you can make them.

MAKING
For brown sugar mixture

For the dough
5. In a large bowl, put together, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, flour, and mix well together using a fork.
6. Pour in the buttermilk and mix well with wooden spoon, until the mixture gets crumbly, do not over mix it.
7. With clean hands, knead the dough in the bowl and then transfer the dough on a clean flour dusted surface and knead it until soft and not sticking to hands.
8. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 12” X 9” rectangle, dust more flour if needed.
9. Spread the brown sugar filling, all over the dough, leaving a ½” border. 10. Start from the long side, roll the dough, tightly to make a tight log and press the open edge to make it stick.
11. Using a serrated knife, trim the sides, and cut into 6 thick slices.
12. Turn the pieces over on their flat sides, and pat down with your hand.
