This canned cinnamon rolls hack is exactly what you need to make your life easier and more delicious! Brown sugar and butter add decadence to Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and create a bakery-like cinnamon roll you’ll want to serve at your next brunch!


  • Canned Cinnamon Rolls
  • 2 TBS Melted Butter
  • 3 TBS Brown Sugar
  • 1 TBS Chopped Nuts, optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 400˚, or whatever your cinnamon roll package directions say.
  2. In the bottom of your baking dish, pour in the 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and cover with 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. Don’t mix it.
  3. If you’re using the 1 tablespoon of chopped nuts, go ahead and sprinkle them over the brown sugar.
  4. Pop your cinnamon roll can open, and remove the icing packet, set that aside.
  5. Place each cinnamon roll “face down” with the extra cinnamon-y side down, on top of the brown sugar. Squeeze them all into your baking dish!
  6. Bake according to your package directions, but reduce the time by 1-2 minutes. For this recipe, I used Pillsbury brand, and I baked them at 400˚ for 10 minutes.
  7. While the rolls bake, heat your icing up in the microwave for 10 seconds, so it drizzles easily.
  8. When the rolls are golden brown, remove from the oven.
  9. Add your cake plate or serving dish on top of the HOT baking dish and flip out.
  10. Drizzle the warm icing over top the ooey gooey cinnamon rolls, and serve!
