You know those round tins of cinnamon rolls you get at the grocery store? Don’t you ever want just one or two cinnamon rolls, but not the whole package at once? yeah, me too. So I discovered a little trick …a little life hack if you will. You can actually make just one single cinnamon roll in the microwave!
And instead of greasing a pan, waiting 25 minutes for it to cook, using your oven, having pans to wash later – it takes just 30 seconds for your cinnamon roll to be ready in the microwave!
1) Once you open your cinnamon roll tin, you will want to be sure to put the rest of your rolls in an airtight ziplock. The rolls will stay fresh for 1 or 2 days in that – maybe longer. But I cant say for sure since ours never last longer than that without being eaten! But keep in mind the longer they are exposed to air, the less potent the leavening agent will be. Meaning the longer you wait to make them- the less fluffy:)
2) place a single roll on a napkin in your microwave. Set Microwave for 30 seconds. (Please note that time may vary slightly if your microwave runs extra fast or slow. The first time you do it- take your roll out at 20 seconds and see if you need the additional 10. Also the 30 seconds is for the normal size cinnamon rolls, not the jumbo size. Those would obviously need more time!)
3) use a scoop of icing included in your tin and enjoy!
Here is a quick video showing you how I do it…
Hope that helps someone, I find it to be a neat little trick!
