Cinnamon Roll Bread

I found this on a site called Money Saving Mom. I decided to make it for Breakfast this morning and it was so good. Normal cinnamon rolls take over an hour and a half to make by the time you let them rise. From start to finish these only take about 35 minutes. Cant beat that!


  • 1/2 cup very warm water
  • 1/2 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter OR cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup white and/or brown sugar (depending on your preference!)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Pour water in large bowl and sprinkle yeast and tablespoon of sugar over the surface. Allow to sit for a few minutes to get foamy. Add in butter (oil) and salt. Start stirring in flour (I just use a big wooden spoon), and continue adding until a stiff, but still a bit sticky, dough ball forms. Place dough in a greased or oiled bowl and cover with a tea towel. Place in a warm place (e.g. your oven at its lowest setting is fine) and let rise for 15 minutes.

While that’s happening, combine cold butter, 1/2 cup sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl and cut together using a fork, a pastry cutter, or your fingers. You’re forming a buttery streusel-y type material here. Set that aside. Whip up a batch of your favorite glaze or frosting.

By now, your timer’s probably gone off, so grab your bowl of dough and punch it down. It won’t be super-puffy, and that’s totally fine. Press the dough into a greased 9″ round baking pan. (If it keeps “shrinking” on you, just let it rest for a few minutes, then try again.) Sprinkle the “streusel” mixture all over the surface of the dough. No need for a second rise here. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. Pour glaze over the rolls or frost.

Note: The streusel topping is really sweet so unless you have a super sweet tooth I would cut the recipe for that in half.
