With no rise time this Maple Pecan Cinnamon Roll recipe is ready in about an hour!

For years cinnamon rolls were a favorite Sunday morning treat for our family, but it was always “Wham-ums”.  “What in the world are those?” you are probably asking.  Well, it’s the name our family has for canned biscuits, cinnamon rolls and any other type of bread that comes in a can.  Why?  Because you “wham um” on the counter to get the can open…makes sense, right?  

Now as much as we enjoy the taste and convenience of these cinnamon rolls, we enjoy homemade SO much more! The problem I have making them homemade is time…all the recipes I’ve found involve long rising times.  Then, I found this recipe.  It only “rests” in the refrigerator about twenty minutes AND it’s not just an ordinary cinnamon roll…it’s Maple Pecan!  

 

Here’s the Recipe:

Dough:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

Filling:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
