Sunday Morning Shortcut Cinnamon Rolls will get up you and out of bed even on those lazy weekend mornings. You may not be a morning person, but when there's dessert for breakfast on the table, you may perk right up. Made with only 6 ingredients, this is a very easy and sweet breakfast recipe that cooks in just a half hour. You can make these as a special treat for your weekday morning, or as a lazy way to ease into your weekend. Make a pot of coffee and some bacon and you've got sweet, salty, and caffeinated covered.


  • 4 cups Bisquick mix
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk (add more if mixture is too dry)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter (2 tablespoons melted; remaining can be kept at room temp)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray 2 cake pans with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine Bisquick, buttermilk, and sugar. Stir to combine, add more buttermilk if needed. Dough will be moist and sticky. Set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Set aside.

  4. Generously (very generously) flour working surface.  Turn out dough and pat into a ball. Roll into a rectangular shape, getting dough to about a 1/2-inch thickness.

  5. Spread remaining softened butter over the surface of the dough.  Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon mixture.  Gently press mixture into the dough.

  6. From the long end, roll dough into a log. Cut into 10 even pieces and place rolls into prepared backing dishes.

  7. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, just until the tops are golden.  

  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cook for 5-10 minutes. Top with your favorite frosting.

This is my kind of recipe, both delicious and so very easy to make. I can't begin to tell you how much I love cinnamon rolls but every time I try to make them it's an epic fail that looks and tastes nothing like cinnamon rolls are supposed to and more like sweetened crunchy biscuits. I bet these would be amazing with some apples and raisins inside of them. Yum!

I have been looking for a great cinnamon roll recipe. This one sounds like it fits the bill perfectly. I prefer the Bisquick biscuits over Grands any day, so I know I will love this one immediately. Thanks for the breakfast idea, this will be on my menu list real soon!

We have cinnamon rolls at least once a month, but I usually buy the tube of rolls. I like to use Bisquick recipes because I like the light fluffy texture of Bisquick. We will treat these rolls like a breakfast/dessert, and enjoy them with milk and coffee and a fruit salad.

Oh my goodness, those look so yummy! I just love the smell of hot fresh cinnamon buns. I have got to make these for my family. I would love to be able to eat this myself, but I have dairy allergies and must eat vegan. Do you or does anyone know how to make this into a vegan recipe with the same results are the original one?

Wow! These look super tasty. I love cinnamon rolls, but I've never actually tried making my own. I suppose that's about to change soon. )

This recipe looks great since my family loves cinnamon rolls but they so time consuming to make. These shortcuts are a great way to enjoy yummy homemade cinnamon buns in a fraction of the time! I love the addition of the video especially for recipes with techniques like rolling out the dough etc. These look so good I can't wait to try them!
