Unlike conventional cinnamon buns this recipe does not use yeast. It is light and tender on the inside, golden and caramelized on the outside and, best of all, quick to make.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a 9-inch square pan with foil. Brush with melted butter.
Step 2
Combine the Dark Brown Sugar (2/3 cup), Granulated Sugar (3 tablespoon), Ground Cinnamon (2 teaspoon), Ground Cloves (1/8 teaspoon), and Salt (1/8 teaspoon).
Step 3
Add Unsalted Butter (1 tablespoon) and stir with a fork or fingers until the mixture resembles wet sand. Set aside.
Step 4
In another large bowl, whisk together the Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (3 cup), Granulated Sugar (2 tablespoon), Baking Powder (1 1/4 teaspoon), Baking Soda (1/2 teaspoon), and Salt (1/2 teaspoon).
Step 5
Add Unsalted Butter (3 tablespoon) and Low-Fat Buttermilk (1 1/4 cup) to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until the liquid is absorbed (the dough will be sticky and look shaggy), about 30 seconds.
Step 6
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Knead, lightly until just smooth and no longer shaggy, about 30 seconds.
Step 7
Lightly dust the surface again. Pat the dough into a small rectangle, then roll into a 12-inch x 9-inch rectangle, dusting more flour sparingly if necessary so the dough doesn't stick to the rolling pin.
Step 8
Brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of Unsalted Butter (1 tablespoon). Sprinkle the dough evenly with the brown sugar filling, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Using your hand, press the filling firmly into the dough.
Step 9
Starting at the long side, roll the dough, pressing lightly, to form a tight log. Pinch the seam to seal.
Step 10
Roll the log seam-side down and, using a serrated knife, cut it evenly into 9 pieces.
Step 11
Turn the pieces over on their flat sides, and slightly flatten each piece with your hand to seal the open edges and keep the filling in place.
Step 12
Place the rolls in prepared pan and brush with 1 tablespoon of Unsalted Butter (1 tablespoon). Bake until the edges are golden brown, 23-25 minutes.
Step 13
Meanwhile, make the glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Cream Cheese (1 1/2 tablespoon), Buttermilk (2 tablespoon) until thick and smooth. Add Powdered Confectioners Sugar (3/4 cup) and whisk until smooth glaze forms.
Step 14
When the buns are done, use the foil overhang to lift them out of the baking pan and onto a wire rack. Let cool for 5 minutes, then carefully separate the buns, using a knife if necessary.
Step 15
Drizzle the glaze evenly over the buns. Serve warm out of the oven, or store in airtight container and reheat.
