No Yeast Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls


Today is a bit of a flash back. Pardon the photos, they are old,  as is the recipe. However it is kinda new because the recipe was never posted on my website...

You see, I originally created them for a guest post on another blog. Well... that blog no longer exists. Which is really sad, because I actually really enjoyed it.  And it's double sad because this recipe has been MIA for the past few months. 



What I love about these cinnamon rolls is that you can whip them up in 30 minutes. No rise time required, easy, fuss free breakfast. I like to make these on the weekends for the kids. They actually prefer to eat them with no frosting. I on the other hand like to load them up.


No Yeast Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Directions:
2 1/4 cups flour (additional for dusting/rolling)
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup room temperature butter
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tbs Maple Syrup

For the filling:
3 tbs room temperature butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbs pumpkin pie spice

For the Topping:

4 oz room temperature cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1-3 tbs cream
pinch of salt

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 400.

 Sift four, baking powder and salt together. With a pastry blender cut in butter until its crumbly.

Then fold in pumpkin, buttermilk and maple syrup.

Work the dough until it is blended, about 8 kneads.

On a lightly floured surface roll dough out until it is about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Spread butter over the top sprinkle with brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.

Roll dough into a log. Slice into  1 inch thick pieces.

Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

To prepare topping, whip cream cheese with powdered sugar and salt until combined. Mix in cream 1 tbs at a time until you have your desired consistency.

Spread over the tops of warm buns and enjoy!

    1. If you wanted a regular cinnamon roll you would need to find a different recipe. Google Recipe Girl's No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls. She makes a butt kicking yeastless cinnamon bun. I've made them SO many times! I'll post the link on my facebook page later today....

  5. Yum - these look amazing. Do you have any suggestions of what I could swap the pumpkin out with for someone who has a pumpkin allergy? (Crazy, I know!)

    1. Banana, beets, sweet potato. Pretty much any puree works!

  6. As much as I love baking with yeast, I hate having to plan my weekend schedule around waiting for rising times, lol. I'll definitely make this the next time I have a hankering for pumpkin, cinnamon rolls and lots of frosting (because, obviously, frosting is the best part!).
