Easy Dutch Oven Apple Cinnamon Rolls

June 24, 2013

As I was reading one of the latest Sunset magazines, I fantasized about making my own homemade cinnamon rolls for our Yosemite trip. That lasted about 2 seconds before I realized I had a few hours left to pack and shop before we left for Yosemite.  It would be just as fun to make cinnamon rolls out of the can…..why not?  I did learn a couple of things while making this recipe for the first time and have adapted it accordingly.  Basically, I didn’t cook the cinnamon rolls long enough before adding the apples on top and it took forever for the dough to cook all the way through ;( Needless to say, they were warm, tasty, easy and different.

Dutch Oven


1. Place cinnamon rolls in a lightly greased 12-inch dutch oven. Heat up dutch oven to 350, using both coals on the bottom and on the top.  I use the following picture for a reference, taken from here:

2. Cook Cinnamon rolls for 3/4 of the desired time on the can (approximately 15-20 minutes)or until fluffy and cooked all the way through (if the top is brown, you’ve waited too long.)3. Remove lid and add apples on top of cinnamon rolls. Add cream cheese frosting on top of apples. 3. Bake for another 5-10 minutes.4. Serve and enjoy while it’s hot!!!
