Quick Cinnamon Buns Recipe

cinnamon buns recipe

I know I posted a cinnamon bun recipe in the past, but I think now I prefer this recipe. I found the original recipe here, but since she uses a different recipe for her baking mix, I changed the cinnamon bun recipe slightly. Here is how we made the delicious cinnamon buns! Annie strapped on her apron and helped, and Tobi joined us after a while to help as well.


  • 4.5 cups homemade baking mix
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar (this isn’t essential, but it makes the buns rise more)
  • 1-1/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon


  • 1.5 cup icing sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk

Directions  (preheat oven to 400F)

  1. Combine cream of tartar and baking mix. Add in the milk, and stir with a wooden spoon until dough forms.cinnamon bun recipe
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface or no-stick baking mat and knead several times. It will be sticky.
  3. Roll out into a large rectangle.
  4. Melt butter, and brush it onto the dough with a pastry brush.cinnamon bun recipe
  5. Combine sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over dough.
  6. Roll dough into a long log-shape. Press to seal seam.cinnamon bun recipe
  7. Cut into 12 pieces. To prevent the dough from squishing as it is cut, you can use a long piece of dental floss. Just pass the floss under the dough, pull up both ends and cross them over top. Pull to slice the floss through the dough.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes in an ungreased pan
  9. Meanwhile, put the icing sugar in a small bowl and add milk in slowly, stirring, to make the icing. You may not need to use the full 2 Tbsp, or you may need a bit more. Pour icing over the cinnamon buns when they’re still hot after coming out of the oven.
