Cinnamon Roll Waffles

May 21, 2012

Cinnamon Roll Waffles… This post is an old classic. One of the very first here at One Sweet Appetite. Loooooong before websites like Buzzfeed and Huffington post were sharing creative things to cook in a waffle iron I was making these beauties. The best part? You only need ONE ingredient.

Start by snagging a can of your favorite cinnamon rolls. I love that fluffy little dough boy and always lean towards the Pillsbury brand but any canned variety will work. Heat your waffle iron for a few minutes so it gets nice and warm and then get a little crazy with the non-stick spray.

Open your can of rolls and grab two. I used a square shaped iron so one went onto each side. If you have a round style waffle maker I’d suggest starting with just one. I’m not sure if two would fit but if you are feeling crazy go ahead and try it out. Make sure you comment below if it works.

Now you are going to need to close the lid. Push down on that sucker. You want the rolls to flatten to ensure they cook through. . Mine took about 1-1/2 minutes to bake but you may need to adjust your baking time according to how hot you iron gets. Just make sure they are a nice golden color on each side.

While they are still warm you will want to spread the frosting. A little tip from my kitchen? Heat the glaze (without the metal lid) in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds and then drizzle it across the tops. This makes it a little easier to evenly coat each waffle…er… cinnamon roll and takes away the hassle of spreading with a knife.

So there you have it! A fun and slightly fancy breakfast that is ready in under ten minutes!
