Blackstone Griddle Cinnamon Rolls

Canned Cinnamon Rolls: Today, I used Immaculate Cinnamon Rolls, but this recipe will work with any Cinnamon Roll in a package, including Pillsbury, Trader Joe’s, and your local store brand.

How To Cook Cinnamon Rolls On Blackstone

There are two methods; one is that you throw the cinnamon rolls down and smash them. I tried my method, preparing them in a disposable metal pan.

Either way will work, and the cooking time is about the same. You will still need to flip them halfway for both methods.

How To Cook Cinnamon Rolls On Blackstone

Step One: Prepare The Cinnamon Rolls

  • Preheat the Blackstone: Preheat your Blackstone griddle to medium-low heat, around 325-350°F (163-177°C). Ensure the griddle is clean and lightly oiled or sprayed to prevent sticking if you put the cinnamon rolls directly on the Blackstone Griddle Flat Surface.
  • Open the Can: Carefully open the can of store-bought cinnamon rolls. Most canned cinnamon rolls come with icing, so set it aside for later.

Step Two: Add The Cinnamon Rolls

Place the pan on the Blackstone Griddle on medium heat and set cook time for 10 minutes, flipping halfway.

If adding the cinnamon rolls directly on the Blackstone Griddle:

  • Place on the Griddle: Place the individual cinnamon rolls directly onto the preheated griddle. Leave some space between each roll to allow for expansion as they cook.
  • Cook and Flip: Cook the cinnamon rolls for about 2-3 minutes on one side or until they are golden brown. Then, use a spatula to gently flip them over and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.

Step Three: Serving:

  • Check for Doneness: Keep an eye on the rolls as they cook. They should be puffed up, evenly browned, and cooked through. If needed, you can press down gently with the spatula to ensure even cooking.
  • Remove and Ice: Once the cinnamon rolls are done, carefully remove them from the griddle using a spatula and place them on a serving plate. While they are still warm, drizzle the included icing over the top of the rolls.
  • Serve: Serve your Blackstone-cooked canned cinnamon rolls immediately while warm and gooey.

Recipe Variations

Several delicious recipe variations and ways to customize your Blackstone cinnamon rolls to suit your taste preferences. Here are some ideas:

  • Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls: Before cooking, flatten out the dough and add your favorite fillings, such as chopped nuts, raisins, or even cream cheese. Roll it up and cook it as usual for extra flavor and texture.
  • Glaze Variations: Experiment with different glazes to drizzle over your cinnamon rolls. Try a classic cream cheese icing, a maple glaze, or a flavored glaze with extracts like vanilla, almond, or lemon.
  • Fruit-Infused: Add some fruity goodness by incorporating chopped fruits like apples, peaches, or berries into your cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle them on top of the dough before rolling it up.
  • Spice It Up: Enhance the flavor profile with nutmeg, allspice, or cardamom. Sprinkle them onto the dough and the cinnamon sugar mixture for a unique twist.
  • Chocolate Lover’s Delight: For a chocolatey indulgence, spread a layer of chocolate hazelnut spread or chocolate chips on the dough before rolling it up. Top it with a chocolate glaze for the ultimate treat.
  • Savory Cinnamon Rolls: Instead of the traditional sweet rolls, consider making savory versions. Fill the dough with cheese, bacon, and herbs for a delightful, savory twist.
  • Mini Cinnamon Roll Bites: Create bite-sized cinnamon roll pieces by cutting the dough into smaller portions before cooking. These are perfect for snacking or serving at parties.
  • Gluten-Free or Vegan: If you have dietary restrictions, look for gluten-free or vegan cinnamon roll dough and adapt the recipe to your needs. There are plenty of options available in stores.
  • Frosting Bar: Set up a cinnamon roll frosting bar with various toppings like chopped nuts, shredded coconut, sprinkles, and fruit compotes. Let everyone customize their own cinnamon rolls.
  • Cinnamon Roll Waffles: Flatten the dough and cook it on your Blackstone griddle like a waffle. Top it with cinnamon sugar, icing, and your favorite toppings for a fun twist.

With these variations, you can transform your Blackstone cinnamon rolls into a unique and mouthwatering treat that will delight your taste buds and impress your family and friends. Don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen!

Pro Tips For Cooking Cinnamon Rolls On Blackstone Griddle

Cooking Canned Cinnamon Rolls on Blackstone:

  • Preheat and Maintain Temperature: Ensure your Blackstone griddle is preheated to the recommended temperature and maintain a consistent heat level throughout the cooking process. This helps in even cooking and prevents burning.
  • Use Cooking Spray or Oil: Even though most canned cinnamon rolls come with some fat in the dough, it’s a good idea to lightly oil or spray the griddle surface before placing the rolls. This prevents sticking and promotes a nice golden color.
  • Don’t Overcrowd: Avoid overcrowding the griddle by leaving enough space between each cinnamon roll. Overcrowding can lead to uneven cooking and may cause the rolls to stick together.
  • Keep an Eye on Them: Cinnamon rolls can cook quickly, so keep a close watch on them. Rotate or flip them if needed to ensure that all sides cook evenly.
  • Check Internal Temperature: If you have a kitchen thermometer, you can check the internal temperature of the rolls. They are done when they reach an internal temperature of around 190-200°F (88-93°C).
  • Drizzle Icing While Warm: For the best results, drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls while still warm. The heat helps the icing melt and spread evenly, creating a delicious glaze.
  • Serve Immediately: Cinnamon rolls are at their best when served fresh and warm. Enjoy them right after cooking for that gooey, irresistible texture.

By following these pro tips, you can ensure your canned cinnamon rolls turn out perfectly on your Blackstone griddle, making for a delightful breakfast or dessert treat.

Can I cook cinnamon rolls directly on the Blackstone griddle without a pan or foil?

Yes, you can cook cinnamon rolls directly on the Blackstone griddle. However, using a pan or foil can help prevent them from sticking to the griddle and make cleanup easier.

What temperature should I set the Blackstone griddle to for cooking cinnamon rolls?

Preheat your Blackstone griddle to a medium-low heat setting, around 325-350°F (163-177°C). This lower heat helps ensure that the inside of the rolls cooks evenly without burning the outside.

How do I prevent the cinnamon rolls from sticking to the griddle?

To prevent sticking, you can either lightly grease the griddle surface with cooking spray or oil, or you can place the cinnamon rolls on a piece of foil or in a griddle-safe pan.

Can I use parchment paper instead of foil to cook the cinnamon rolls on the griddle?

Yes, parchment paper can be used as an alternative to foil. It helps prevent sticking and can be easily removed once the rolls are cooked.

How long should I cook the cinnamon rolls on the Blackstone griddle?

Cooking times may vary depending on the size and thickness of the cinnamon rolls, as well as the specific griddle temperature. Generally, it takes about 8-12 minutes per side, but check the rolls for doneness by lifting a corner to see if they are golden brown.

Can I cook other breakfast items on the Blackstone griddle while making cinnamon rolls?

Yes, you can cook other breakfast items simultaneously on the griddle, such as bacon, eggs, or pancakes, if you have enough space. Just be mindful of the temperature zones and cooking times for each item.

How can I keep the cinnamon rolls warm while cooking multiple batches on the griddle?

To keep cooked cinnamon rolls warm while you make more batches, you can place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and cover them with aluminum foil. Alternatively, you can keep them in an oven preheated to its lowest setting (around 170°F or 77°C).

Can I make savory versions of cinnamon rolls on the Blackstone griddle?

Absolutely! You can make savory versions by filling the rolls with cheese, bacon, herbs, or even a pizza-inspired filling. Experiment with different flavors to suit your preferences.
