Cinnamon Roll Waffles

This amazing waffle recipe is super simple, with the use of canned cinnamon rolls. Perfect for older kids to prepare, these delicious cinnamon rolls topped with a tangy cream cheese glaze would be the perfect breakfast in bed, for mom on Mother's Day.

Canned cinnamon rolls? Yep, you totally read that right. This recipe could be made with one convenient ingredient; a can of cinnamon rolls! Isn't that insane? 

Not only is it crazy, it's also the perfect recipe for kiddos to prepare for Moms on Mother's Day. There is no mixing of the batter, no overfilling the waffle iron, resulting on batter overflowing all over the counter. This is totally breakfast made easy!

I can't remember when I first stumbled upon this recipe, on Pinterest. I think it was back in 2012, when my kids were still little. 

Back then I was all about simple breakfasts, since I was usually cooking and chasing kids all over the house. So when I found a recipe that was as easy as putting canned cinnamon rolls into my waffle iron, I was all over it! Plus the rolls already come with a ready to use glaze, so that's a total bonus!!

When these waffles cook up, they come out looking super cute. These smaller waffles have all the delicious flavours of cinnamon rolls, a soft and tender inside, and crispy outside; with a minimal amount of work. No oven, no pan, minimal clean up. All total wins in my book! 

Since they only require the use of a waffle iron, these waffles are a wonderful breakfast idea for kids to treat Mom on mother's day. Whether it's with the help of Dad, or a solo mission for older children, you can bet any Mom would be happy to be treated to these waffles any time of the year!

If you're feeling adventurous, you can even jazz up the glaze that comes with the cinnamon rolls, by adding 4 oz of cream cheese, a few table spoons of maple syrup, 1/3 C powdered sugar and 1/4 C of your favourite milk (sugar free vanilla almond milk works perfectly).

My kids devour these babies in no time flat, so if you are planning on feeding more than 2 growing teenagers, I suggest using more than one can of cinnamon rolls. Pair them with fresh fruit and your favourite breakfast meat and you have a lovely, insanely delicious and simple meal perfect for any occasion, or even a lazy weekend.

PIN IT!!!

Equipment needed for this recipe

  • waffle iron
  • tongs
  • bowl (if you plan on jazzing up the glaze)
  • whisk
Cinnamon Roll Waffles

1 can cinnamon rolls with frosting
non stick cooking spray

Preheat your waffle iron and spray grates generously with oil/cooking spray. 

Separate cinnamon rolls out of the can. Place one cinnamon roll onto each preheated grate and close waffle iron. 

Cook for about 3 minutes, depending on what temperature your waffle iron works at; mine only has one heat setting so they were done in about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes. 

Remove from waffle iron; using tongs 

Place frosting in a pipping bag, or zip top bag (with a small hole snipped from one corner) and drizzle waffles with frosting.

If you'd like to jazz up your frosting

4 oz softened cream cheese
2 Tbs maple syrup or honey
1/3 C powdered sugar
1/4 C milk of choice

In a bowl, whisk the cream cheese until smooth. 

Add in the frosting that accompanies the cinnamon rolls, maple syrup, and milk. Whisk well to incorporate all ingredients and mixture is smooth.

Add in powdered sugar and whisk until a smooth glaze has formed. 

Drizzle glaze over cooked waffles.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn commission from these links. I offer them to you at no extra charge. I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown
