This giant cinnamon roll is an epic and easy breakfast idea you can make fast! All you need is one can of dough! Use two cans, and you’ll get an even bigger cinnamon roll!
Every bite is infused with brown sugar and cinnamon goodness, and the cream cheese frosting takes it to the next level.
All you need is a can or two of cinnamon roll dough, a baking sheet, and the directions below.
Why This is the Best Giant Cinnamon Roll
This giant cinnamon roll is a quick breakfast that will please a crowd and has a built-in “WOW-factor.” Instead of baking individual cinnamon rolls, you can make one giant cinnamon roll you can enjoy layer by layer or eat by the slice!
I also love this method because it’s like eating the center part of the cinnamon roll all the way through.
How to Make a Giant Cinnamon Roll
This enormous cinnamon roll is easy to assemble and bakes in less than 12 minutes! Here’s how to make it:
- Preheat the oven according to package directions.
- Open each can of cinnamon rolls and set the icing cups aside.
- Place one cinnamon roll onto the center of the baking sheet.
- Unravel another cinnamon roll and place it around the one in the center of the pan. Repeat with the remaining cinnamon rolls until you have a giant circle.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake according to the directions on the back of the can.
- Remove the giant cinnamon roll from the oven.
- Drizzle with the frosting then slice and serve.
I also made a video to show you how quickly this epic breakfast comes together:
Frosting the Giant Cinnamon Roll
Aside from eating, frosting a cinnamon roll straight out of the oven has got to be everyone’s favorite part! You can make your own with powdered sugar and a little milk or use the one that comes with the dough.
Since we used canned cinnamon rolls, you should have 2 frostings. Make sure to remove the metal lid (if your brand has that) before warming it for 30-seconds in the microwave for easier spreading.
If you want extra frosting, then whip up a batch of my homemade glaze from my whole wheat cinnamon roll recipe. It’s quick and divine.
