Easy and Delicious Instant Pot Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Dough ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 2 packets fast acting yeast
  • ¼ sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 cups unbleached flour
Directions on how to make the dough:

In a medium bowl combine warm water and yeast, stir and let sit for 5 minutes until the yeast looks frothy.

Add sugar, oil and flour to the yeast mixture.

Fold in the ingredients until a dough begins to form. Cover your hands in flour and use them to knead the dough and form a ball.

Cover the dough in the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot in your kitchen. I like to turn my stove light on and place bowl under the light.

Let the dough rise for 60 minutes or until it doubles in size.
