This Easy 1 Hour Cinnamon Rolls recipe is quick and simple to make, and the cinnamon rolls are light and fluffy, drizzled with a heavenly vanilla icing, and absolutely delicious! If you want to cut the recipe in half, use the servings slider to easily adjust the amounts.
In a large bowl, add warm water. Stir in sugar and oil. Add yeast, and stir gently. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
In a large stand mixer, add 3 cups flour and salt. Add yeast liquid and mix. Add eggs one at a time and mix after each addition.
Add 3 more cups of flour and mix.
Slowly add 3 more cups of flour and mix.
You now have 9 cups of flour into the dough. Add an additional 1 to 1 & ½ cups flour. Check for stickiness. Dough should be pulling away from bowl edges. It should be sticky but not stick to your fingers.
Spray the inside a 6-8 quart Instant pot insert with non-stick cooking spray. Remove dough from mixer and place in Instant Pot on Yogurt Setting (Low). Cover with a glass lid or an upside down plate and allow to rise for 15-20 minutes
If you do not have a pressure cooker with a yogurt setting, place your dough into a bowl, cover with a towel and place on the counter to double in size.
Separate dough into 3 sections. Using one section at a time, roll out on a lightly floured board into a rectangle. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture evenly over dough.
Roll dough and pinch seam together. Cut dough into rolls, about 1 & ½ inches wide. I like to use unflavored dental floss or thick thread to cut them. Lift the edge of the roll, slide floss under crosswise, lay roll back down then cross threads over the top or the roll, and pull until a slice is cut through. Place rolls about 2 inches apart on a buttered baking sheet.
Bake at 400°F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Mix all icing ingredients together, and drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls. Enjoy.
