Baking homemade cinnamon rolls is fun, but what about reheating them? It’s a great way to have a cinnamon roll breakfast without having to get up extra early to pull them out of the oven. The best way to reheat them to toasts them in the oven.

Cinnamon is a great condiment that has been used to spice foods for years on end. Like any other food item, it too does get cold or frozen when exposed to external weather elements. As such, it has to be re-heated to enable it to perform or bring about the necessary ends.

There are two main convenient ways to re-heat the cinnamon rolls after retrieval from storage and right before the eventual consumption thereof. We are going to take you through these two ways below so that you can know and prepare yourself psychologically.

How to Re-heat Cinnamon Rolls

A. In the oven

The ovens are great for larger quantities of cinnamon rolls as they are spacious and their heat outputs are ordinarily higher per unit time. Ovens also have the strategic advantage of being quieter and more convenient. Follow the steps below to re-heat the cinnamon rolls in the oven:

  • Start by preheating the oven up to 350°F for around 10-15 minutes
  • Place the cinnamon rolls on a baking tray
  • Insert the baking tray in the pre-heated oven
  • Set the re-heating temperature to about 350°F
  • Re-heat the cinnamon while in the oven for around 10-15 minutes (This duration may last longer if the rolls had been retrieved from a freezer as they would require additional time to thaw).
  • After the 10-15 minutes are over, switch off the oven
  • Turn the cinnamon rolls upside down and re-heat for another 10-15 minutes
  • After the 10-15 minutes are over, switch off the oven but leave them inside for some time
  • Retrieve the rolls and place them atop a table to allow them to cool
  • Serve and enjoy!

This process bakes the rolls and warms them through, so that the frosting softens and melts into the bread, making them even more delicious!

B. By use of microwave

Microwaves are good enough for smaller samples that have to be re-heated within a very short duration of time. It is the one to look up to hence if you just want to re-heat enough cinnamon rolls for an individual consumer per unit time. The steps below will certainly help with this:

  • Thaw the cinnamon rolls if you have retrieved them from a freezer (do this by placing them out in the sun to be scorched and dried out)
  • Place the cinnamon rolls in a microwave-safe platter
  • Pre-heat the oven for around 5 minutes or so
  • Insert the platter in which you have placed the rolls in the microwave oven
  • Set the heating times and temperatures (ordinarily, you need 350°F and 15-30 seconds to do so)
  • Re-heat the cinnamon rolls for the designated 15-30 seconds
  • Open the microwave oven and turn the rolls upside down
  • Re-heat again for a further 15-30 seconds
  • Leave the cinnamon rolls in the microwave for 5 minutes at the conclusion of the re-heating
  • Remove the rolls and then serve while hot


As a bonus for sticking with us to the end, we would wish to let you know that over-heating is just not advisable at all. When you expose the cinnamon rolls to too much heat, you suck up all the moisture contents to leave behind only dry crumbs. Thus, you need to regulate the heating time and intensity considerably.
