How perfect would these Easy No Yeast Orange Cinnamon Rolls be on Easter morning? Or Saturday morning? Or Monday night because cinnamon rolls are delicious no matter what time of day it happens to be! My one piece of advice? Make a double batch!
I can’t even tell you how thrilled I am with the outcome of this recipe! I LOVE cinnamon rolls, and I’m also pretty picky about them. I like them light, and fluffy, with ooey gooey centers, and lots of scrumptious icing on top! Despite not having any yeast in this recipe, these rolls are delightfully light and fluffy! They are not dense, or dry, or biscuit like, as a lot of no yeast dough can be.
They are simply perfect, and this is now my go-to recipe for cinnamon rolls! The best part? From start to finish these rolls are ready to eat in one hour! Hooray! No waiting for the dough to rise, or rest, or rise again. It’s a seriously simple recipe and you’d be hard pressed to find a more delicious roll!
I have been craving citrus like nobody’s business lately, so I changed up my usual cinnamon rolls and added orange juice and zest to every layer of these sweet rolls. The cream cheese icing on top is the perfect finishing touch. You are going to love these!
I am going to try making these soon. Two questions: 1. In the comment above, you say to bake 350. But the recipes says 400. Which do you this is better? 2. Do you it would be okay to make the rolls the night before, but make them in the morning? Or would that affect the fluffiness?
Stephanie Brubaker says
Hi Lisa! Sorry for the confusion, bake at 350. These are best if made just before baking, but I have done it the night before and they still taste great! Just make sure none of the filling leaks out or it will caramelize and get too hard/chewy. To prevent this I would use softened butter instead of melted butter on the rolls. Enjoy!

What is the oven temp suppose to be? They look and sound delisous(?) Sorry for the spelling.
Stephanie Brubaker says
350 – sorry about that! Enjoy 🙂
id like to make these with what i have on hand (not working, no incoe), i dont have buttermilk or the ingredients to make it. is there a way of making it without buttermilk?
Stephanie Brubaker says
Do you have regular milk and vinegar? You can just add a tablespoon of vinegar to a measuring cup and fill it the rest of the way with milk and let it sit for 5 minutes. Or you can just use plain milk.

We love cinnamon rolls! I make mine with yeast, but these look so light and fluffy — I want to try them.
Kim Beaulieu says
These look absolutely perfect. I adore citrus rolls so these appeal to me so much I want to whip up a batch at 2 am.
Nutmeg Nanny says
I have a fear of making yeast bread so these rolls are just for me! 🙂
Rose | The Clean Dish says
I’m intrigued… no yeast?! Wow, hard to believe!! These Cinnamon Rolls look like you hit the jackpot! I wish I could take a bite! I’m particular about my cinnamon rolls, too. I also like them fluffy – I don’t care for the heavier kind so yours look JUST perfect!! Slow clapping over here 🙂

This is torture because I don’t have them in front of me : )
How awesome are these cinnamon rolls?! No yeast means that I can hoover the gooey, cinnamony goodness into my mouth that much sooner. The orange is a refreshing touch.
Angie | Big Bear's Wife says
I’m all for cinnamon rolls that don’t use yeast! I love having something sweet in the morning and these would hit the spot!
Marjory @ Dinner-Mom says
These would be PERFECT Easter morning. I love the touch of orange!
Cookin Canuck says
How awesome that these don’t require yeast and the extra time for the dough to rise! My family would be so excited if I made these on Easter morning.
Heather / girlichef says
Cinnamon rolls and orange rolls are two of the most requested breakfast items in my house. I’ve never seen unyeasted rolls that looked even half as amazing as these do. I’m tempted to whip up a batch right now, but since I’m the only one home until much later, I think that may be a bad idea. 😉
Brenda@Sugar-Free Mom says
I love a citrusy twist on anything this time of year as spring weather really hasn’t sprung where I live and it’s so cold. But all things orange and lemon make me feel like spring weather will be here soon. These look incredible!
Lora @cakeduchess says
I think these no-yeast rolls are perfect for a Sunday morning when you are dreaming of homemade rolls. I especially love the quickness and orange is a favorite flavor!!!
Gah.. this look just perfect! They look light and fluffy. They also look like they need to make an appearance in my kitchen!

Renee - Kudos Kitchen says
I love working with yeast dough but sometimes its nice not to have to worry about the “rise factor.” These look just like they were made with a yeast dough so you could have fooled me! Nice recipe. Pinning and can’t wait to try them.

Cinnamon rolls have been on my bucket list for so long. Love the idea of no-yeast and that these can be ready in an hour. Love the orange infusion, too.
Patricia @ Grab a Plate says
These look absolutely amazing! There is nothing worse than dry cinnamon rolls, so I’m glad you mentioned that these are moist and fluffy. LOVE the addition of the orange. I need these!

Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says
I usually have yeast on hand, but sometimes I do run out. I have been craving cinnamon rolls and these look so easy that I must try them!
Dee Dee (My Midlife Kitchen) says
You had me at “no yeast”. I admit to being one of those people who is intimidated by using yeast–it feels so precise, and I don’t follow rules very well. LOL. These look scrumptious! I am adding these to the list of easy recipes for my “Baked Good Mondays” that I do for my husband’s office each week. Thanks!
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says
I want them RIGHT NOW!!
June Burns says
Those look wonderful…so fluffy and soft! Love how easy they are too 🙂 Orange lemon sounds like a great sweet roll flavor.
