I’ve been wanting to have a go at making Cinnamon Scrolls for what feels like FOREVER and with Mother’s Day coming up I decided now was as good a time as any to finally give them a try – after all there will be no fancy breakfast in bed for me unless I make it myself! In the interests of saving time, I decided to use my fail safe scroll dough recipe – the same one I used for my Vegemite and Cheese Scrolls and Nutella and Raspberry Scrolls to create these yummy and most importantly yeast free Cinnamon Scrolls.
Now I’m going to give you a warning before you read this recipe, these scrolls are most certainly a sometimes food and cannot be considered healthy in any shape or form. Thanks to the combination of a thick and generous butter, sugar and cinnamon filling is complemented perfectly by the soft scroll dough and sweet vanilla icing you only need one (ok maybe two) to satisfy you – but if you eat these warm I dare you to stop at just one.

I cannot believe I have waited so long to make these, the smell of the freshly baked scrolls coming out of the oven was so irresistible I actually burnt my fingers in an attempt to steal just a little piece before they had cooled.
