I LOVE fresh homemade Cinnamon Rolls, but I don’t always want to wait 24 hours for the dough to rise!  So I experimented and came up with Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls!

This took a little experimenting, but using instant yeast, and adding more than normal – I got a great tasting cinnamon roll out of the slow cooker and I got it in 4 hours!  YEA!  If you have a programmable slow cooker these could for SURE be done over night!   They are so much better than having a roll out of a can – you need to give these a try!

Ingredients

The Dough

  • 2 1/2 to 2 2/3 Cups of Flour
  • 1/4 Cup of Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt
  • 2 Pkgs Instant Yeast
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Egg

For Spread

  • 6-8 tbsp of Butter
  • Cinnamon around 4-5 Tbsp (enough to lightly cover the dough completely when rolled out)
  • Sugar around 1/4 C (again enough to lightly cover the dough completely when rolled out)

For Frosting

  • 1 1/4 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp of Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

  1. Mix together 1 of the cups of flour with the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Once thoroughly mixed add the rest of the flour until you have a nice smooth, elastic dough.
  3. Knead 5-10 minutes.
  4. Roll out dough into a rectangle
  5. Spread butter (generously!) onto dough and then sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar to your taste.
  6. Roll up and cut cinnamon rolls (I usually get around 9 bigger sized from this recipe but you could cut smaller for more rolls).
  7. Place into slow cooker (that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray)
  8. Place slow cooker on warm and if you have a glass top place dark colored towel on top to block out the light
  9. Without peaking, let the dough rise on warm in the slow cooker for at least 2 hours
  10. After at least 2 hours change the slow cooker to low and cook for an additional 2 hours
  11. After removing rolls from slow cooker, mix together ingredients for frosting and pour on warm rolls. Serve immediately.
  12. Store any left overs in an air tight container
