Baking| Quick Cinnamon Apple Buns with Cinnamon Icing {no yeast} … A Guest Post!

“All human history attests
That happiness for man,the hungry sinner!
Since Eve ate apples,
Much depends on dinner.”
Lord Byron

Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns {no yeast}This recipe is inspired by my search for ‘quick breads‘ when I first saw the Daring Bakers challenge for February. One thing led to another and googling for cinnabons I found several links online to the Cooks Illustrated recipe for Quick Cinnamon Buns. I added apple to the filling too. The QUICK result – Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns!Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns {no yeast} Of course I procrastinated since the challenge said quick breads that would be ready in next to no time, no rising etc. “Yeah, no problem, I can do this tomorrow!“. I did but that tomorrow came too close to posting date.I posted  Double Chocolate Dessert Popovers instead and I’m finally blogging this quick bread to feed a friends hungry blog!Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns {no yeast} These are for Suma @ Cakes & More, a very sweet and extremely helpful food blogger in Bangalore. I have endlessly bothered her for baking stuff from Bangalore that I cannot find in Gurgaon/Delhi, and she obliges happily each time. My list began hesitatingly with dark cocoa {from Nilgiris} and vital gluten … then I stole a mile when offered an inch! Now I regularly get parchment paper, instant active yeast, piping bags and much more from this lovely lady.Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns {no yeast}She hesitatingly asked me a short while ago if I would do a guest post for her, and I was amazed! After all I have pestered her to do, it is her right to ask, and for me to oblige! So for you Suma, here’s a ‘quick bread’ which works great for breakfast, and doubles up as a comforting delicious dessert too.Quick Apple Cinnamon Buns {no yeast}It’s a wonderful feeling to have dessert baking while dinner is served. Bonus … the house smells so good! If you are wary of the yeast monster, these are quick buns for you. And, even if you aren’t afraid of the yeast factor, yet want some fast track yumminess, these are worth every bite. Do head across to Cakes & More for the recipe!

    Good snack for the kids. I’ll ask my wife to bake this cinnamon bun.

    Cinnamon buns without yeast…..I will surely give them a try. This no yeast version excites me as I always wanted to bake cinnamon buns, but was always afraid of the recipes involving yeast (hard to find good yeast in India)

    Deeba, these were the awesome-st buns I ever had!! :) Being a lover of anything apple-pie’ish, I knew I had to try this eggless, yeast-less bun :) Thanks for being available to solve queries too!

    My DH loved it totally and so did my son and the rest of the family. A pity I made only one recipe… I have made some extra white butter so that I can make this quick bun again this week :)

    Thanks again for sharing!!

    Ever feel down? Cinnamon is definitely the cure. Just the smell of ground cinnamon can change a persons mood. Your buns look great and should be in everyone “medicine cabinet”

    Great stuff!
