There’s something about the weekend that makes you just want to celebrate, but who really has time Saturday morning for elaborate breakfasts? You worked hard all week! That’s what I love about this super simple cinnamon roll trick. Simply unwind and bake in a nonstick doughnut pan and you’re winning Mom-of-the-Year award just like that.
I used the basic biscuit-like rolls, but you can also use the cinnamon rolls that unwind. And you will need a doughnut pan, but I find it’s worth it to make doughnuts without heating up a pan of oil for frying. If you do not have a donut pan, place the unbaked donuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven.
Next, preheat your oven to 375°F. Remove the cinnamon roll dough from the can. Take each one and with your fingers roll it into a rope. Pinch the two ends together and place the donut into a donut pan.
Bake the cinnamon rolls donuts in the preheated oven for 13-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Remove the donuts from the pan and drizzle icing over them. Serve warm.
