I like making everything from scratch, but sometimes I just wanna take the simpler path. And that’s what I did here.

Break all the cinnamon rolls apart too, as soon as you open the tube or it gets more tricky to do so after a little while – experience talking.
Cut your cinnamon rolls into four. Spray down your donut maker with Pam, close it, and plug it in until its ready to go.

These we amazing! I just found a great new way to make cinnamon rolls or donuts. Perfect for hot summer days when you don’t want to run the oven but still want the fresh baked cinnamon roll goodness in your mouth, and tummy.
Now I’m sure that you could probably make them with a homemade cinnamon recipe, but sometimes simple, fast and ready to go is just what you need.
