Oops! I did it again. I pinned it, tried it, failed at it. lol I got a new waffle maker for Christmas. I still to this day don’t remember what happened to my old one. Neither does Mr. Yum, so we are convinced someone stole it. 😉 Sometimes when I get bored I look to see whats new in Pinterest land. Now I know that most of that stuff on Pinterest has been made and practiced by the originator multiple times before they stage and take their photos. I know that drill. So, when I see things that look good, I take that with a grain of salt knowing the time of work they probably put in to it.
These cinnamon roll waffles are certainly frugal friendly. I think my can was less than $2 and it provided us all with breakfast.
That’s a lie. I could have provided us all with breakfast. I didn’t share.
That said, who would think that buying a can of cinnamon rolls from my grocer and then popping them in to my greased up waffle maker be all that difficult?
Certainly not me. Once I decided that I was going to make them and get off Pinterest, I settled on this recipe from Tablespoon because the recipe creations used a small round waffle maker similar to mine. Then I pondered over this recipe from Little Bit Funky because she made three at a time instead of one. Seemed like a lot less work for me. Both of these I found on Pinterest.
Now, click the links, go check out how pretty theirs turned out.
Mine turned out nothing like that.
Part of it could be my fault. I stood right there watching the cinnamon roll waffles, but they still got a little brown. However, I did not like the way the three placed together turned out and I had an odd number in my can anyway, so I did the rest of them single. They still turned out a bit brown.
I still put the icing on them and I still ate them. #nomnom
I would make these again for breakfast or a special treat. This time, I’ll keep my eye on them a little harder and not let them cook quite as long.
Feel free to share some of your eats that you tried recently that didn’t look so good, but tasted wonderful!

Holy crap! I NEED to make these immediately. What a smart idea.
Cinnamon rolls in under a minute. You can thank me later 🙂
Mine would look exactly like yours did – mine never turn out as perfect as the ones I see on other people’s pages or on Pinterest. But I’m sure they still tasted yummy!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
Never once have I had one of my creations turn out like it looks on Pinterest LOL.
It’s pretty rare for me too!
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
What, someone stole your wafflemaker? LOL
I just like icing! You can keep the roll just give me all the icing! 😉
Natalie Z says
That is so clever! I know what I am making for breakfast this weekend!
I actually have 2 waffle makers in my cupboard. We use to have a big breakfast for our families. Now, I hardly ever use them. After seeing these, I want to get them out and try it.
I found a cookbook that is all about using your waffle maker. When I was younger my mom has this sandwich maker that made them like hot pockets, we were always experimenting. I purchased one so I could relive those memories with kiddo.
Catherine S says
This is such a great idea. They look so yummy. I think it is time to dust off the waffle iron.
What a cool idea!! I love that you can make them so quickly!! Sorry they didn’t turn out, but I truly think you are on to something!
I have GOT to pull out the waffle maker now! These look so good!
I made buffalo pulled pork sandwiches. They’re messy, but so incredibly delicious. It’s all about how the food tastes, right?
Cinnamon rolls are my weakness. I have to pull myself away from them at the mall. I can’t wait to try yours. The waffle iron better get ready!
Nina Say says
I have cinnamon rolls in my fridge, and I am going to make these tonight. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Oh wow. This looks so good. I’ve never made homemade waffles. I love the icing and I love anything with cinnamon so they look amazing to me!
Marcie W. says
They may not be pretty but they sure look good! We actually use our waffle maker quite often so surprising the kids with a treat like this would be really special.
Bonnie @ wemake7 says
I haven’t had a Cinnamon Roll in ages, where the heck have I been? lol Now I want one!
Wow, they look awesome. And even my son will be able to make them. Thank you for sharing.
I’ve seen recipes like these on Pinterest!! I have also seen brownies and hash browns in the waffle maker, I need to buy a waffle maker!!
I made these with my son last summer. He thought they were so cool!
Well, I never even thought to use my waffle maker for cinnamon rolls. Now I am adding cinnamon rolls to my grocery list to give this a try this week!
Demetra @SweetSavant says
Looks good to me! I’m going to try this for my family, I’ve never done cinnamon rolls in the waffle maker.
Alysia from My Domestic Dish says
Haha neat idea to save some time! 😛
My husband’s spoiled now though and he won’t eat these.. MEANWHILE that’s ALL he ever had for baked goods before we got together. He’s 30lbs heavier now…. wonder why :S
#chubbyhubby #lovesfood #deliciouscinnabons
LOL…so they were a tad on the dark side, I love this idea of yours and wish I would have thought of it!
Chubskulit Rose says
Wow, that is one thing I would have never thought of doing so thanks a lot. My kids would absolutely like that!
Dawn McAlexander says
These look super tasty! I love cinnamon rolls!
Stacey- Travel Blogger says
I’ll have to try these out! What a fun spin on waffles and cinnamon rolls!
I could see myself making these as a midnight snack with regular frozen waffles lol. We don’t even own a waffler maker or most grown up appliances yet. I love those cinnamon buns from the refrigerator too, and these remind me off those except fancier. Yum!!
I’ve been meaning to get a waffle maker for some time now. Now I really need to get one!!
Marina John says
I would have never thought to put a cinnamon roll in the waffle maker. Can’t wait to try this!
My daughter loves cinnamon rolls and she loves waffles too. I bet she’d be really happy to have these.
This is such a fantastic idea, I can’t believe I didn’t think to do it before ha. I have a waffle maker collecting dust for months now and now I know what to do with it.
How have I never thought to do this?? My kids will go crazy over these!
vanessa: briteandbubbly says
Can’t let things go to waste no matter how things come out. I’ll have to try these in my waffle maker some time.
Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies says
I love what you did with the cinnamon rolls! That’s such a cool idea. Never thought of putting them in the waffle maker before.
Ooooo this is such a SMART idea. I am loving what you did here. SO good.
I am tired of checking out pinterest and recreating so recipes which when I do when look anything like pinterest. The final product here looks yummy enough to be consumed
I never thought to make cinnamon rolls in the waffle maker. I want to try this ASAP!
I pinned this a while ago, but never tried it. Does it take like cinnamon rolls? Waffles? Waffles with cinnamon?
Ann BAcciaglia says
I love cinnamon rolls. This is a genius idea. None of the food I cook ever looks pretty, I usually burn or somehow ruin it all.
I have been curious to try the waffle cinnamon rolls. I would probably be there with the pinterest fail.
I;ve been seeing so many incredible uses for the waffle make lately. This looks so yummy!
Those look so good! I love waffles but I’ve never tried making them here at home. It’s about time! 🙂
We did this a couple of weekends ago and it was FANTASTIC!! The kids were over the moon about it and want to do it every weekend now! It was well worth it and delicious!
My husband loves waffles (me too) and I love cinnamon rolls (he does, too)… this is a perfect marriage! Can’t wait to try them. As for Pinterest, I don’t usually try anything I see on Pinterest (I use it as inspiration or ideas, though) because mine would NEVER look as good as on Pinterest. 🙂
Oh my goodness, aren’t these the best? I just love to make them on the weekend for my family! lol. And I mean for me. Because I think I eat most of them. lol.
I love when people share their Pinterest experiences. I’ve seen this idea floating around out there and was skeptical. I’m guessing that more people have your results than you would think. I bet it still tasted good though!
valerie g says
OMG i need to try these! this looks amazing.
Stefani Tolson says
These look good. I so want to try this!
Shannon Gurnee says
I never thought about making cinnamon muffins on a waffle iron! These sound really yummy and easy to make! Thanks for sharing.
Mommy Peach says
Oh my gosh. I’m reading this at 2am and it makes me crave for Cinnamon Rolls!
