Tips for Making Cinnamon Rolls in the Waffle Maker
Use Nonstick Cooking Spray. Spray waffle iron with nonstick spray if you don’t have a non-stick surface.
Smush the cinnamon rolls. Press the cinnamon rolls flat between your palms before placing them on the waffle iron. This makes it easier for them to cook quickly.
Heat the waffle Iron. It is important that the waffle maker is fully at temperature and you have a hot waffle maker before you put the cinnamon rolls into it to cook.
Use any flavor Cinnamon Rolls. I have used Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and store bought cinnamon rolls and ones in different flavors and they have all worked cooking them in the waffle iron.
