The BEST Way To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls

Most cinnamon roll recipes make between 9 to 12 servings. If you don’t have that many mouths to feed, you may be left in a pickle. You can either over-indulge or be sensible and save them for later.
This recipe is all about reheating your cinnamon rolls to keep them (nearly) as moist and fresh as the first time they came out of the oven.

  • 1 portion cinnamon rolls
  • 1 sprinkle water
  • 1 tbsp icing or butter (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Sprinkle (or spray) approximately 1 tablespoon of water on each cinnamon roll. The water allows the roll to rehydrate while it reheats.
  • Optional: add additional icing or butter to taste. I personally love cream cheese icing – but feel free to adapt. I find that adding icing before reheating adds additional moisture to the cinnamon roll.
  • Cover the cinnamon rolls completely with foil. This prevents the tops from burning and prevents moisture from escaping. It’s key to not drying them out.
  • Place the foil-wrapped cinnamon rolls on a baking tray and reheat in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
