I love cinnamon rolls of all types. Every year when fall sets in, you see me breaking out the cinnamon and putting a tray of these in the oven. Baking with cinnamon reminds me of crisper days, fallen leaves, fresh chopped wood and autumnal skies. Okay it's May, but why wait!
These cinnamon rolls are the cake kind using baking powder and not yeast. If you prefer those kind, see the post Cinnamon Buns. What is great about using the baking powder way, is you don't have to wait for dough to rise, so these are in the basket at no time at all. Delicious whether it's spring or fall.

1 Cup/200 grams of brown sugar

Arrange rolls in a greased 9 inch baking pan and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set the pan over a wire rack.
