So cant get my King Cake for Mardi Gras but seems those frozen cinnamon rolls will do the trick. And now that I am going to try them in the microwave I can have a whole bunch of mini cakes!


Seriously… I was expecting an ACTUAL recipe… what has this society come to…


Oh man… i was looking for an actual recipe… if i had a tube of cinnamon rolls i think id just bake it. I REALLY WANT A RECIPE FOR NOT HEALTHY (i do NOT like dates or bananas or have oat flour or coconut oil) CINNAMON ROLLS FROM SCRATCH!!! Any suggestions?
Although, im sure this would be a wonderful recipe. I will certainly try it if i ever get my hands on a tube of cinnamon rolls. 😉


OP, ignore all the “tHiS iS nOt A rEcIpE” butt nuggets. I came looking for a way to microwave a cinnamon roll from a tube, and that’s what I got. Thank you.


^ Seconded. I was looking for an easy way to cook JUST ONE cinnamon roll and not the whole batch, and this was the ONLY search result that matched what I was looking for. From what I can tell, cinnamon roll recipes are a dime a dozen, so I don’t know what everyone is complaining about.

I really appreciate the hint for this because I am staying in a hotel with a microwave and cook top, no oven and my sweetheart wants cinnamon rolls! Thank you! Thank you!
