For the Cinnamon Roll Bake

  • 1 bag Rhodes Thaw, Rise, & Bake rolls You'll need 16 rolls for this recipe - simply thaw that amount and keep the rest in the freezer
  • 1 cup + 3 tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 2 and 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted (1 stick, 8 tbsp, or 113 grams)

For the Glaze

  • 2 tbsp salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar + 2 tbsp
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream


  • Prep: Thaw your 16 rolls according to the package directions (I always thaw mine in the fridge overnight and then let them rest at room temp on the counter for about 1 hour before assembling and baking).
    Grease a 10-inch oven safe skillet with nonstick spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Make the Cinnamon Roll Bake: Melt the butter in a small bowl. Stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. Cut each roll in half. Dunk each piece in the butter, coating completely, then do the same in the cinnamon sugar. Place each piece snugly in the pan. Pour any leftover melted butter over the tops of the dough pieces in the pan, and sprinkle on any leftover cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake: Bake for 20-24 minutes. You can use a knife to lift up a piece of dough to check for doneness, and the rolls shouldn't seem dough when you poke into the bottom with a knife.
  • Make the Glaze: While the cinnamon roll skillet bakes, mix up the glaze. Melt the butter in a small bowl, then whisk in the remaining ingredients.
  • Serve + Store: Let the bake rest for a few minutes once out of the oven, then drizzle the glaze on top and enjoy! This is best fresh from the oven but leftovers can be covered and stored in the fridge for a few days.


Note: Rhodes dough can be found in the freezer section of most major grocery stores. Use their store locator to find some near you!
