Best Way to Reheat Cinnamon Rolls

There is nothing better than freshly made cinnamon buns, right out of the oven.

Taking that first bite into those super gooey, warm and sweet little cinnamon rolls will have your taste buds exploding.

I know you can agree that rolls that have been stored in the fridge/freezer or have been sitting out at room temperature need to be reheated, so you can have that same experience.

For cinnamon rolls, the two best reheating options are:

  • Oven/Toaster Oven
  • Microwave

Let’s take a detailed look at each reheating option below, along with step-by-step instructions.

How to Reheat Cinnamon Rolls in the Oven/Toaster Oven (Best Method)

Cinnamon Rolls on a Table

While the oven is the best option to reheat these sticky buns, it can be a bit slow to get the cinnamon rolls warmed up.

However, there is a reason why the oven is the #1 option. This is because it will have the rolls tasting as if they were freshly baked.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees
  2. Place cinnamon rolls on a baking sheet.
  3. Place in oven and have them reheat for 5-10 minutes (depending on the size of the rolls and also how cold they are)
  4. If you are taking them out of the freezer, you might have to keep them in the oven a bit longer.
  5. Take out, allow to cool and then enjoy.

How to Reheat Cinnamon Rolls in the Microwave (Quickest Option)

The microwave is another good reheating option for cinnamon rolls.

It is quick and can have everything heated up in a couple of seconds, however, the minor downside to using the microwave is that it won’t have that toasty texture.

Please Note: It is important that you do not keep the rolls too long in the microwave. If you overheat them, the texture can change and it can be very soggy and mushy.


  1. Place the cinnamon rolls on a microwave safe plate.
  2. Zap the rolls for about 15-30 seconds or until fully warmed up.
  3. Make sure you do not microwave them too long as they can get soggy.
  4. Take out and enjoy.

  1. The microwave will also make the cinnamon roll (and any other bread product) tremendously tough within seconds after you take it out of the microwave. Best to be patent and wait for the oven.
