I think I may have mentioned before that I love playing with dough. I loving baking breads and rolls and I don’t mind the kneading at all. Some people find it cumbersome and avoid it at all cost. Well, if you are one of those people and you hate waiting for an hour or two for the dough to rise, then this is the recipe for you. I have my go to recipe that makes a larger batch, but it is much more time consuming. This is a recipe for when you want some deliciousness, NOW.
You can have a delicious cinnamon or fruit jam roll in less than an hour. Aren’t you excited? Seriously, these are so quick and delicious. You can make your basic cinnamon sugar filling, or use any fruit jam, or just honey. I used apricot pineapple jam in one batch and an orange sugar blend in another.
As for glaze, you could do a basic powdered sugar and milk glaze or just brush some jam on the hot rolls. Just do whatever sounds good to you and you wont be disappointed. It’s a really quick breakfast or dessert that will make you and everyone else, happy!
So go make a batch of ooey gooey rolls.
No Knead, No Rise Fruit Cinnamon Rolls
(small batch…..6 rolls)
1/2 cup warm (not hot) water
1 Tblsp sugar
1 Tblsp quick yeast
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3 Tblsp soft butter
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
In a mixer bowl, stir the yeast and sugar to the warm water. Allow to sit for 12 minutes until it is very foamy. With the paddle attachment, add in the butter and salt. Mix for 1 minute. Switch to a dough hook if you have one, and add in the flour, mixing at medium low speed until all the dough comes together (away from the sides of the bowl). On a lightly floured board, roll the dough out to approx. 9×11.
3 Tblsp very soft butter
1/4 cup of fruit jam (I used apricot pineapple jam)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Mix the butter, jam and cinnamon together. Spread it all over the dough. Carefully roll up the dough with the seam on the bottom.
Note: I roll with the long side of the dough
Using a sharp serrated edged knife, cut into 6 rolls. Try not to smoosh down the rolls as you slice.
Heat oven to 400. Place the rolls into a lightly sprayed or buttered cake pan or pie plate. Allow to just sit for 10 minutes.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes until they are slightly browned on top. Remove from oven and let rest for 15 minutes. Make your topping! Spread topping of your choice on warm rolls.
– Spread some jam on the tops of the warm rolls.
– Mix 1 cup powered sugar with just a few drops of water, milk or lemon or orange juice…until you get a glaze, the consistency that you like.
– Mix 1/4 cup honey with a few drops of milk. Drizzle all over the rolls.
– Mix 2 oz very soft cream cheese, 1 Tblsp soft butter and 1 cup powdered sugar together. Spread on the rolls.
– If you don’t like things too sweet, just spread some soft butter all over the rolls.
