Easy 1 minute cinnamon roll in a mug instructions! I can’t believe how simple this mug dessert is to make and I didn’t make this sooner!
So literally I was sitting here at my desk working thru lunch (as usual) and really wanted something sweet. I thought maybe I could make a quick cinnamon roll in a mug and it totally worked!! I will definitely add this one to the rest of my mug recipes. (originally published 1/17)
This all started because there was nothing in the house as far as cookies were concerned. I didn’t want to make an entire box of brownies but really really wanted something for dessert. Since I’ve been on a kick of making microwave dessert recipes, this one needed to be tried now!!
- I started my obsession with mug desserts with this chocolate chip cookie in a mug!
Mug cinnamon roll
So last week we made pizza in a mug and my kids are now obsessed with it. Now they can literally make it themselves when they come home from school and they love that!
I figured I could use the same idea and use refrigerated cinnamon rolls instead of the large biscuits.
It could be a perfect dessert mug recipe to make a quick cinnamon roll with frosting for me to enjoy. Dessert for 1! This is what I did…..sit down, this is crazy simple.
Cinnamon roll in a mug
- Roll of refrigerated cinnamon rolls
- or frozen / defrosted Rhodes cinnamon rolls
- Large mug
- Non stick spray
- Frosting included in the roll
This is what I did:
- I used a larger mug and sprayed the inside with non stick spray.
- Then I laid 1 Cinnabon refrigerated cinnamon roll inside and put it in the microwave for 1 minute.
- It raised up and up all the way to the top, but went down a bit when it turned off and I took it out.
- Next I took it out and tested it and it was done to perfection!!
- These tubes come with a small tub of frosting so I put that in the microwave for 9 seconds just to warm it up.
- Pour some frosting on and enjoy!!
I know…it’s so simple.
I can’t believe it but it was a perfect treat after lunch and I saved the rest in a round tupperware container so I could show the kids when they came home from school. Now they can have a cinnamon roll treat and make it themselves!
