Quick & Easy Cinnamon Rolls

February 8, 2018

Whilst I was in university we would take a yearly trip to Ikea where we would spend the day buying bits and bobs to prettify our lacklustre bedrooms. Obviously the highlight of my trip was finding things I’ve never seen before and I’m ashamed to say it, but I’d never had a Cinnamon Roll before 2011!

I never had a car in my first year, so I had to find a way to recreate them and stick to my student budget. Queue ready rolled pastry! A godsend for any student baker who wants a quick fix of pastry goodness.

So here they are, my quick and easy Cinnamon Roll recipe:


For the rolls:
1 Jus-rol Ready Rolled Puff Pastry Roll
200g Caster Sugar
2tsp Cinnamon
30g Butter
For the icing:
200g Icing Sugar
3-5tbsp Warm Water


  1. Leave pastry at room temperature for 10 minutes. This ensures your pastry doesn’t crack when you roll it out. If you’re in a rush you can pop this in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  2. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas Mark 7 and line an 8 inch round cake tin.
  3. Roll out the pastry on the parchment paper included.
  4. Gently heat the butter in a pan and brush over the rolled out pastry.
  5. Mix the caster sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the warm butter.
  6. Roll up the pastry along the short side as this will give you a longer roll.
  7. Once rolled, cut into equal sized pieces and lay in your ready prepared cake tin.
  8. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Whilst the rolls are in the oven, mix the icing sugar with enough water to create runny icing.
  10. Once the rolls are cooked, allow to cool a little before pouring the icing over the top.

If you are a student looking for that pastry hit at home, or someone looking for a quick and easy breakfast to impress the family, go try thins and let me know how you get on!

Happy eating!
