cinnamon rolls in a waffle iron! who knew!!

So, I've been seriously sick for the last few days...no voice, no appetite, chills, fever, coughing and all the fun that goes away with it.  I've been self-medicating with Zicam, OJ and over the counter meds.  My head has not been all that clear and I am still not well...on the upswing maybe...but still far from 100%.

With all that going on, do you know what my first coherent thought was this morning?  I bet I can make cinnamon rolls in my waffle iron.  Really.  My first thought of the day.  I have no idea where it came from...maybe it was birthed from a pinterest pin about making cookies in a waffle iron but in my nyquil induced cloud, THIS is what my brain does to me.

So during a "good" moment today, I managed to drag myself to the grocery store and get the shopping done and I was sure to throw some good ol' pillsbury cinnamon rolls in my cart.
 I got home and spent some time on the couch to recover. 
And then I went for it.
I would spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and arrange your rolls close to the center. 
You DO NOT want them squishing out of the edge.
You need to hold your waffle iron down if it doesn't have a latch...I only had to wait the same amount of time that I do when I use the iron to make waffles.  Really.  I was shocked that it worked so quickly. 
 Just a couple minutes later...and we had cinnamon roll waffles! 
They were wonderful...and had nicely textured edges...I think I like them better this way!
They were a hit and GONE within moments.  This will be a new thing for us!

Did you know this was possible?  Try it, you'll like it. :)
Pin It!

I tried this a while ago as well and it was so good ... my kids loved it. And I loved that it was so easy!

Hi, I don't normally post on anything, but I wanted to give you a warning. I don't know what Zicam product you are using, but if it is the nasal spray, please be careful. I found out after it happened to me; a certain percentage of the population who use it lose their sense of smell. Along with most of your taste.
Thanks for the recipe, I had been wanting to try this but wasn't sure how. Got a tube of orange rolls and can't wait.

This image of these cinnamon rolls is all OVER the internet, but I'm so glad I was able to track it down to the original site. They look delicious!

I have a duaghter with autism who loves cinnamon rolls but will not eat waffles. I took a chance this morning and she loved them! and I didn't have to heat the oven up. It was so much faster in the waffle iron. Thanks for the idea.

I did a double-take when I saw this pic on Pinterest!!! I bought my cinnamon rolls last night, and I am trying them this Saturday with my kids. I saw some posts about doing brownies and cookies in the waffle iron...do you have recipes for those too? Thank you!!!

Michelle Rich said...

What a great idea! These turned out great! When I went to the store to purchase the rolls, I discovered a special edition made with Hershey's chocolate icing. Genius way to eat chocolate for breakfast!

I am doing a trial run this morning and then make these for the family on Christmas morning!

Your blog is L-O-V-E. I remember I had the most mind-blowing waffles at one of the hotels in luton but this surely took the number one spot from my heart. Thanks a lot for the recipe!

Such a great idea!! I have a Belgian waffle maker... think it would work in that?

shellmel777 said...

Just tried it..... AMAZING! This is definitely one of those "why didn't I think of that" projects. I will never do cinnamon rolls in the oven again. :-)

Ruthanne said...

I'm the 'mean mom' who never gives my kids yummy sugary things for breakfast but I am totally making these on Friday when we are all home for spring break. :)
