One Hour Cinnamon Rolls are one of the easiest & most delicious cinnamon rolls recipes you’ll ever make. Literally just one hour to enjoying that first bite!
Man, I sure love a good cinnamon roll. How about you? When I was expecting my first born there was a place near where we lived that made THE BEST cinnamon rolls. They were massive & absolutely amazing. I ate them way more often than I should have & I’m pretty sure that is why my son now has a serious addiction to cinnamon. After many years I decided it was high time to make my own. Many years & many recipes later, I have finally recreated the best thing on earth to enjoy for breakfast. Best part- they only take one hour to make. Check out these One Hour Cinnamon Rolls!

I’m not kidding when I say one hour. I really mean it. From the time you get started to the time you are enjoying your first bite- just one hour. This, of course, makes it really hard to tell the family that I just don’t have time on a Sunday morning to make some of these. They hint around….”gee mom, wouldn’t cinnamon rolls be great for breakfast?” as I’m sipping my coffee & trying to wake up. Well, as a matter a fact, yes they would be great. With a recipe as good as this I really have nothing holding me back.
Simple, easy & oh so amazingly delicious.

Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
One Hour Cinnamon Rolls
- 1 cup warm water 115 degrees is perfect
- 3/4 cup buttermilk- room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 5 tbsp butter- melted & slightly cooled
- 3 tbsp dry active yeast
- 1/2 tbsp table salt
- 2 large eggs- room temperature
- 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup butter- melted
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 oz cream cheese- room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 cups confectioners sugar
- 2-4 tbsp milk (depending on desired thickness
In a large mixer bowl, combine water, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter & yeast, stir & then allow to sit approx 15 minutes for yeast to proof. (you know it's ready when it's puffed & frothy)
Add in eggs, salt & flour & mix together slowly using a dough hook until flour is incorporated
Set on med-low speed & mix/knead 10 minutes
Once mixed, let rest 10 minutes while you make your filling & preheat the oven
Prepare the filling by combining brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger in a small bowl & mixing with a fork
Preheat oven to 375 degrees & line a baking sheet with a non-stick mat
Roll dough out on lightly floured surface into a flat & even layer (approx 12x15)
Brush melted butter over dough & then sprinkle filling mixture on top
Roll tightly on the long side & then cut into 12 large rolls (easiest way to make them even is to first cut the log in half & then cut those two pieces in half again & then those 4 pieces into thirds)
Place on prepared baking sheet & bake 15-20 minutes
Remove & allow to cool slightly while you mix your icing
Prepare the icing by combining all ingredients in a small bowl & whisking well until you reach desired consistency
Drizzle over the top of the rolls while they are still warm
