Cinnamon rolls have suddenly become one of the most popular things to bake in lockdown.
You only need to take a glance at Instagram or TikTok to see pictures and videos of the scrumptious swirls.
Traditionally made in the oven and smothered with butter and sugar, Instagram foodie @cakeontherun has come up with a super-quick and healthy alternative.
In fact, her sweet buns are so simple, they take just 90 seconds to cook in the microwave.
The low-fat and low-sugar delights can be enjoyed for breakfast, as a mid-morning snack or for afternoon tea.
Especially for Christmas, she has given the delicious danish a festive twist by rolling the soft and squidgy dough in a mince pie filling.
But if you don’t like mince pies, here’s her classic cinnamon roll recipe.
Made with just three simple ingredients, they require no prooving and can be made gluten-free and vegan too.
All you need to do is use a dairy-free yoghurt and gluten-free flour – both available in UK supermarkets.

Ingredients 70g self-raising flour (plus extra for dusting)
70g any plain or vanilla yoghurt
1 tbsp mincemeat from a jar
Optional – icing sugar mixed with water to drizzle on top Method > Mix the flour and the yoghurt in a bowl with a spoon until it becomes to clump together. Then use your hands to mould into a dough ball. Sprinkle the kitchen surface and your hands with extra flour so the dough does not stick and flatten the ball out into a sausage shape. Spread the mincemeat along it and then using your fingertips roll it up tightly. Pop the roll into a mug and cook in a microwave on high for 90 seconds. Cut in half and drizzle over icing sugar (optional). Enjoy! Not that you’ll want to save them until later, but these quick cinnamon rolls are best eaten straight away as they lose their fluffiness once cooled. Love quick and easy recipes?
