The recipe for this No Yeast Single Serve Cinnamon Roll has been a long time coming.

What ingredients do I need?

The dough for this No Yeast Single Serve Cinnamon Roll is based on my favourite magic dough:

  • Thick dairy-free yoghurt: I always use coconut yoghurt for the best results. Th thicker the better and the roll will not work with runny yoghurt.
  • Caster sugar: just a little to sweeten the dough and other sugar like light brown or coconut sugar will also work.
  • Self-raising flour: this makes the dough super light and fluffy. You can also use a gluten-free self-raising flour blend with xantham gum (read this post for advice on swapping to gluten-free flour).
  • Salt: to enhance the flavours.

Onto the filling:

  • Vegan butter: or coconut oil but I prefer the flavour of vegan butter here.
  • Light brown sugar: I prefer a light brown, demerara or coconut sugar for filling as it’s richer and has a slight crunch.
  • Cinnamon: no cinnamon roll is complete without cinnamon.

Finally, the glaze:

  • Thick dairy-free yoghurt: as above, the thicker the better and I also used coconut yoghurt here.
  • Icing sugar: this adds the classic glaze on top of the No Yeast Single Serve Cinnamon Roll.

How do I make this No Yeast Single Serve Cinnamon Roll?

The method is very simple and almost identical to all other cinnamon rolls apart from the last part:

  • Make the dough: stir together the ingredients and bring to smooth dough.
  • Roll out to rectangle: making it as neat as possible.
  • Brush with butter: and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
  • Slice the rectangle in half lengthways: so you have two long strips.
  • Roll one strip up into a roll: like a regular cinnamon roll.
  • Place this roll on top of the second strip: and roll this around the first roll to make one larger roll.
  • Place into a greased ramekin: and brush with butter.
  • Bake until golden and fluffy: and allow to cool slightly.
  • Cover with the frosting: and dig in.

Is this No Yeast Single Serve Cinnamon Roll gluten-free and nut-free?

Yes, this recipe is easily gluten-free, just use your preferred GF self-raising flour and read this blog post for advice on ratios of wet to dry. This recipe is naturally nut-free, just check that your yoghurt and butter are free from nuts.

Can I make this into different flavours?

Yes, of course, this would be delicious spread with strawberry (or other) jam like my Strawberry No Yeast Swirl Buns or spread with chocolate spread, too (like my Chocolate Star Bread).
