Craving warm, gooey cinnamon rolls but short on time? This recipe delivers! With a quick-rising dough, you can have these homemade treats ready in just 90 minutes.


  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup softened margarine
  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup softened margarine
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup raisins (Optional)


  1. Warm Up the Milk: Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it’s just warm to the touch or forms a few bubbles around the edge. Take it off the heat and stir in the softened margarine until melted. Set this mixture aside.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together 2 ¼ cups of flour, white sugar, yeast, and salt.
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Add the milk mixture, water, and egg to the dry ingredients. Beat well to combine.
  4. Knead the Dough: Gradually add the remaining 1 cup of flour, ½ cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. Once the dough comes together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth.
  5. Let the Dough Rest: Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes.

  1. Prepare the Filling: While the dough rests, whip up the filling by mixing brown sugar, softened margarine, and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Preheat and Grease: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius) and grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
  3. Roll and Fill: Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12×9-inch rectangle. Spread the brown sugar mixture evenly over the dough, then sprinkle with raisins (if using).

  1. Shape and Rise: Roll up the dough tightly and pinch the seam to seal. Cut the dough into 12 equal rolls. Place them cut-side up in the prepared muffin pan. Cover the pan and let the rolls rise for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.

  1. Bake and Enjoy! Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let them cool slightly on a wire rack before serving warm.
