Cinnamon Roll Waffles

These super simple Cinnamon Roll Waffles are a fun way to make a classic dessert. With just one ingredient, and five minutes, you can have warm waffles ready to be frosted!

We have been making cinnamon roll waffles for ages. When a recipe calls for one ingredient and can be made in less than five minutes, you can count me in.

All you need to get started is a can of  your favorite cinnamon rolls and a waffle maker. We like the Pillsbury brand, but any variety will work! This recipe is especially great for busy mornings or quick desserts. It happens to be one of my sons favorite special treats and one he can help out with in the kitchen!

Baking Cinnamon Rolls in a Waffle Iron

Cinnamon Roll Waffle Ingredients:

  • 1 can cinnamon rolls
  • Non stick spray

How to make canned cinnamon rolls into waffles:

  1. Start by picking up 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.
  2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Now you are going to need to close the lid. Push down on that sucker, but not hard enough to break your maker. You want the rolls to flatten to ensure they cook through.

5. Cook about 1-1/2 minutes. 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!
