You know how some recipes manage to just worm their little way into your overloaded brain, mingle around with every other thought in there and somehow refuse to leave until you’ve made them?
Yes, this recipe is one of those. Deservedly so. Wickedly so.
Cinnamon rolls in an hour? Start to finish? Can it be done? What about proving the dough?
NO proving you say?! Now this I have to try…always up for a challenge! Especially a deliciously edible one.
And a one-hour ‘Emmerdale’ on TV just as I begin. Perfect timing.
I got this great recipe from Averie Cooks a fabulous home to beautiful sweet recipes, each one begging to be made! And huge plus – Averie is obsessed with peanut butter too. Instant friend status. 😉
Here is Averie’s One-Hour Cinnamon Roll Recipe.
My Notes- Especially if you are in the UK:
I used 2 sachets of instant yeast, which I just added to the bowl along with the other ingredients.
1 carton of buttermilk (250g) is just enough for 1 cup of buttermilk for the rolls and 1-2 tbsp to add to the cream cheese frosting (it made the frosting really lovely and tangy!)
As Averie says, be careful not to over cook, mine could have done with taking out at 18 minutes. I have a fan-assisted oven which is overly hot. Always. So check yours before the 20 minutes that the recipe states.
I tried to do the cutting with dental floss trick, but just couldn’t do it! I resorted to a kitchen knife which pushed the rolls out of shape 😦
marks out of 10? 8
would I make them again? Yes!
would I do anything differently? does it defeat the object to say I’d let them prove? At least after they have been cut and placed in the pan, I’d definitely leave them for an hour or so, just to relax and let the yeast start to do its thing…..
They are great if you have an absolutely hideous craving for cinnamon rolls that just won’t go away and you need them soon……after all, here in the UK we can’t just nip out and buy them….I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing….however, if you are not pushed for time Averie also has a recipe for overnight buttermilk cinnamon rolls.
Thanks Averie for a great recipe! 🙂
Oh, and by the way, the closing music to ‘Emmerdale’ was playing, just as I took them out of the oven…. 😉
Batch No.2 :
Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful!
knead the dough for the full 7 minutes, don’t skimp on this, it makes a wonderfully soft, elastic shiny dough. Set a timer if you have to! That’s what I did!
And if you have even a spare 30 minutes (which is what I had spare!) do let the dough prove.
Well, you can see the end result for yourself. Fluffy and light.
Oh and a runnier icing, I have decided, is my preference, it gets into all the nooks and crannies much better….
thanks for trying these & glad you enjoyed them! If you try the overnight version, they are seriously the best rolls on my site…enjoy 🙂
I will definitely be trying them Averie! 🙂
OMG they do look so “eat me, eat me” good! I’m so glad I don’t have any buttermilk at the moment or I’d be baking these little beauties right now (and with my OH out I ‘might’ just east more than one!!). However I will try these at the weekend 😉
