Yummy Scrummy Cinnamon Rolls! (Yeast Free)
Hello there! How are your New Years resolutions getting on? Dreams of a healthier lifestyle? Goals of a thinner, slimmer you? Well fear not! Because I am here to help….
…. No, I'm not really. I believe in the 80/20 rule! 80% good things, 20% not-so good foods - such as these.
I love cinnamon. I put it in everything - on porridge, in cookies, in crumbles; even on toast with honey and banana! It's one of those spices that just makes you think of home and warm fuzzy feelings.
I'd had my eye on some cinnamon rolls for a while now, but there was one small problem with most of the recipes I'd seen - they all contained yeast!
It's not that I don't mind using yeast. In fact, I love the smell of fresh bread being proved in the kitchen; it fills the room with such a beautiful smell. However, I dislike the amount of time it takes to make things using yeast. In our busy society, one simply doesn't have two hours to spend waiting for bread to rise! And that's even before the 45 minutes in the oven…
I found the recipe for these rolls on that wonderful site named Pinterest. (Follow me @emmagracer!) They're from Iowa Girl's blog; originally taken from In Jennie's Kitchen, and they've been tweaked along the way! I left out the cream cheese icing because I just wanted a plain cinnamon roll, nothing too fancy; and it means that I can freeze them for nibbling later on in the month!
Tip: Eat them fresh. And why not try them with a little vanilla ice-cream for dessert one evening? You'll thank me later.
