Ingredients for 1-Hour Cinnamon Rolls Without Yeast

6 tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons of leveled baking powder

3/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup cold and cubed butter

1 cup sour cream

2 large egg yolks

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cinnamon Roll Filling


1/2 cup cream melted butter

1 1/4 cups light brown sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

1/2 cup cream cheese at room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup butter at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make 1-Hour Cinnamon Rolls Without Yeast


Preheat oven to 200˚ C. Line a 10-inch baking tray with parchment paper and butter it to keep the dough from sticking.

Cinnamon Roll Filling


Put the brown sugar, cinnamon powder, and melted butter in a small bowl. Combine the ingredients and set them aside.

Cinnamon Roll Dough


Place the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix these dry ingredients, then add cold butter cubes. Rub the mixture by hand until it forms coarse crumbs.


Now, set the mixture aside and prepare the wet ingredients. Add some sour cream, egg yolks, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix these ingredients together. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture little by little, until your dough comes together.


Roll the dough on a shelf or pastry board and spread the cinnamon mixture on the rolled dough leaving half an inch border to avoid spilling. Nicely roll the dough and leave no spaces in the dough. Cut 1 1/2-inch squares from the dough, transfer them to the lined baking pan, and place them side by side. Bake the cinnamon rolls for 35-40 minutes at 200˚ C / 400˚ F and prepare the cream cheese glaze.

Cream Cheese Glaze Recipe


Add cream cheese, butter (at room temperature), and powdered sugar into the bowl. Mix them together until there are no lumps.


After the cinnamon rolls become nice golden brown, remove the tray from the oven and spread cream cheese glaze on rolls generously.


Enjoy the perfect freshly baked cinnamon rolls with your family!
