Quickie Cinnamon Buns

The other day I was in the mood for cinnamon buns, just not in the mood for the time-consuming process of kneading, waiting for the dough to rise and then repeating the process. So, I decided to take a major shortcut (using baking powder instead of yeast). I’m guessing my family could not tell the difference because the buns were all gone within minutes of the photo-shoot, lol!!

  • 2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp baking powder

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 oz (box) raisins
  • Ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tbsp vanilla yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine sifted flour and baking powder along with sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add milk until a stiff dough begins to form.
  4. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
  5. Roll into a 12 x 14 rectangle (using a rolling pin).
  6. Spread the surface of the dough with butter leaving about an inch at the edges.
  7. Sprinkle with cinnamon and raisins.
  8. Roll the dough length-wise like a jelly roll, pinch seam and both ends.
  9. Use a sharp knife to cut into 1 inch slices (about 12 buns).
  10. Arrange buns onto lightly greased baking sheet.
  11. Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  12. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before drizzling with glaze. Garnish with strawberry filling (optional).

To make the glaze:
Combine confectioners’ sugar and yogurt (if the mixture is too stiff, just add a bit more yogurt until desired consistency is achieved).
