How To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls?

I had heard of cinnamon rolls in the movies and in TV shows, but never had the pleasure of trying one.

Then a new shopping centre opened in Portugal with a Starbucks and in the fall they had cinnamon rolls.

I sat down outside with the rest of the family (who don’t like them) and bit into my first ever cinnamon roll.

I was in love, and it paired perfectly with a Starbucks warm hot chocolate.

But the problem was that Starbucks was over an hour round trip from our home when we lived in Portugal, and I had a cinnamon roll addiction.

What I started doing instead, was buying cinnamon rolls when I was at the shopping centre, taking them home and reheating cinnamon rolls in the air fryer.

Today I wanted to show you how to reheat cinnamon rolls. Whether it’s bringing it home from the coffee shop, making them ahead of time or simply reheating your leftovers.


Plus, as well as our free newsletter, we also have a free air fryer mini course. It is ideal for air fryer beginners or those that want to get more confident with their air fryer. The free course runs for 5 days with a new lesson delivered each day to your inbox.

Can You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls?

Yes, you can. Cinnamon rolls are one of those amazing things that you can reheat at home. I have eaten cinnamon rolls both fresh from the bakery and at home reheated and have found that reheated cinnamon rolls are better than just cooked.

Though of course, this depends on how you reheat your cinnamon rolls and I will be showing you today the best way to reheat them at home.

Can You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls In Air Fryer?

You certainly can. I love to reheat cinnamon rolls in the air fryer. The thing about the air fryer is that it adds a fantastic crisp to the pastry, and you just don’t get this if you just eat fresh cinnamon rolls from Starbucks.

Plus, the air fryer is very easy to clean after reheating your rolls and you can do as many or as few as you want.

Can You Eat Cinnamon Rolls The Next Day?

Yes, you can. I would recommend consuming shop bought cinnamon rolls within 3 days. Though the longer you leave the cinnamon rolls the more stale the bread gets, therefore aim for reheating your cinnamon rolls the next day.

What Is The Best Way To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls?

The best way to reheat cinnamon rolls is with your air fryer. Though I am sure you have guessed that I was going to say that!

Its because not only does the air fryer heat them up, but it stops your cinnamon rolls from drying out and it adds an amazing crisp to them.

The crisp on your cinnamon rolls is a bit like how doughnuts are at the fair and so yummy.

How Do You Reheat Cinnamon Rolls?

air fryer reheated cinnamon rolls step by step
  • Load. Add your precooked cinnamon rolls into the air fryer basket.
  • Add. Spray with a little extra virgin olive oil as it will prevent it from sticking.
  • Cook. Air fry for 6 minutes depending on how powerful your air fryer is and then serve.

Note that when you reheat cinnamon rolls using the air fryer method it will melt the icing that is on top, and you can only do 4 at once due to the air fryer size.

If doing more than four, then we recommend that you do them in batches.

What Temp To Reheat Cinnamon Rolls?

The recommended reheat cinnamon rolls temperature is 160c/320f. This will ensure that your cinnamon rolls are cooked in the centre and not just on top. Plus, the air fryer can get very hot and if you go too hot its like you’re cooking it again rather than reheating.

How Long Do Cinnamon Rolls Last?

Reheated cinnamon rolls are good for another 2 days and then you need to consume them. But I would wait and reheat your cinnamon rolls when you are going to eat them and not let them go cold again.

After all, cinnamon rolls or cinnamon buns are at their best when the icing has melted and they are like warm baked goods.

Can You Freeze Cinnamon Rolls?

Yes, you sure can. I often get asked do cinnamon rolls freeze well and I always want to shout from the rooftops how fantastic freezing cinnamon rolls is.

You can make ahead some cinnamon rolls and then freeze them ahead of time. This is fantastic for Thanksgiving and Christmas and allows you to take the stress out of the holidays, knowing that they are ready to go.

You can then thaw them the night before and then use the air fryer to heat up your cinnamon rolls.

    Thank you for this. Got some from Starbucks and took them home and needed to heat them up so followed your idea and they were great, so i put the other one in the microwave and yes it was warm but not as good as the air fryer.
