How To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls

How To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls

Ok, so I’ll admit it. When I make homemade cinnamon rolls there usually aren’t any leftovers (poor self control over here) but when I do have any, I turn to this simple recipe for how to reheat them.

Can You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls In The Microwave?

Yes, you absolutely can. Using a microwave to reheat cinnamon rolls is actually the quickest way to do it, and I think it keeps them most moist.

First of all, the leftover cinnamon rolls should be wrapped in foil and then left on the counter overnight.

This way they’ll get a little dry but won’t get too soggy!

If you put them in the fridge instead it will take them a lot longer to heat up.

Next day microwave for 45 seconds at a time on 50% power until they’re crispy again.

What If Your Reheated Cinnamon Rolls Are Soggy?

The biggest mistake people make when reheating cinnamon rolls is they leave them in the microwave too long.

Depending on how long your microwave takes to reheat things, two minutes might be too long.

I do mine in intervals of 45 seconds on 50% power. Check back every 45 seconds, and take them out when they’re crispy again.

It’s better to leave them a little undercooked than a little overcooked. (Plus whatever you don’t eat the first time around you can reheat another day!)

Can You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls In The Oven?

You can also reheat cinnamon rolls in your oven, but it takes longer that way (up to 20 minutes sometimes!).

Definitely better if you have the time, but it’s not as convenient. Heat them at 350F for about 15 minutes, or until they’re toasty.

Can You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls In A Toaster Oven?

Yes! Another good option if you don’t want to heat up your full oven. Heat in a 350F toaster oven for about 30 minutes, or until they’re crispy again.

How Do You Reheat Unbaked Cinnamon Rolls?

If you have leftovers that are completely unbaked, the best thing to do is reheat them in the oven at 350F for 15-20 minutes.

Can You Reheat Leftover Cinnamon Rolls on the Stovetop?

You can absolutely reheat cinnamon rolls on the stovetop if you want.

This is another option if you don’t have a microwave or you want to use the oven for something else.

Just heat in a nonstick pan over medium heat and then flip them halfway through. Heat for about 4-5 minutes, or until they’re crispy and warm.
