Easy Overnight Cinnamon Buns

Quickly throw this together right before bed to be put in the oven in the morning and enjoy some delicious easy cinnamon buns with breakfast!


  • 25cm Bundt pan, or equivalent size deep baking dish
    • This recipe calls for a bundt pan, however we understand that’s not feasible for all. In that case you can use a different round baking dish, the main caveat being that it’s deep


  • 20 frozen dough balls
  • 1 cup brown cougar
  • Full 153g box instant vanilla pudding powder OR 2 boxes of 102g 
    • Second option gives the buns a ‘creamier’ flavor, first allows for more cinnamon forward
  • 1-2 tbsp cinnamon 
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • ¾ cup raisins (optional)


  1. Grease your pan with butter, 

  2. In a separate bowl mix brown sugar, pudding powder and cinnamon (and optional raisins)

  3. Pour some of the sugar mix in the bottom of the pan with a couple tablespoons of butter. This will help all the buns become coated. 

  4. Place the dough balls evenly in the pan, then pour the rest of the sugar mix overtop. Pour the rest of the butter overtop.

  5. Leave the pan on the counter overnight with a clean, damp towel on top.

  6. In the morning preheat your oven to 350° and bake uncovered for 25 minutes.

  7. Let sit to cool for about 5 minutes before serving!
