Quick Bread Cinnamon Rolls

Quick bread cinnamon rolls are quick!  You can easily get them started and have them coming out of the oven in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.  They are tasty too.

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 T. yeast (this is what makes it so quick)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3 T. honey
  • 1 cube butter softened
  • brown sugar
  • cinnamon
  • a little melted butter
  • maple syrup

Combine 1 cup wheat flour, 1 cup white flour and the yeast in your standing mixer bowl.  In a saucepan warm milk, water, oil, honey and salt.  Not too hot or it will kill the yeast, just warm to touch, melting the honey.  Pour the warm mixture in with the flour and yeast, stir with a wooden spoon.  Using your dough hook, slowly add the rest of the flour.  Knead for 5 minutes.  Remove from mixing bowl. Quickly knead a couple of times with a little flour to make the dough smooth.  Form into a ball and let rest for 10 minutes.  Roll out into a rectangle.  This will be pretty large, about 18x12 inches.  Spread softened butter over entire surface.  Sprinkle with brown sugar to taste...the more the better. Sprinkle with cinnamon the same way.  We like a lot of cinnamon.  Roll into a log, starting on the longer side.  Pinch seam together.  At this point I usually stretch the log of cinnamon roll dough out a little to make it a little more even in is usually thicker in the middle.  Slice into 1 inch thick slices and place in a large pan sprayed with no stick spray.  Let rise 30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until nice and golden.  Once you remove them from the oven, brush with melted butter and then brush with maple syrup.
