Use this Rhodes cinnamon rolls hack to take a favorite comfort food from frozen to next level gooey!
Cinnamon rolls are a beloved breakfast treat just about anyone enjoys!
My family’s love of eating cinnamon rolls runs deep, except for the part of baking them from scratch. I usually bake these simple cheater homemade cinnamon rolls by defrosting and using frozen Rhodes white bread as a shortcut, and it yields yummy results without a ton of effort. They do, in my opinion, have that homemade taste and texture!
Horray for another frozen cinnamon roll hack to try!
Collin’s sister Marley recently shared with our team that she bakes the best Rhodes cinnamon rolls with heavy cream. By adding heavy whipping cream to the bottom of the pan, she takes these popular thaw, rise, and bake cinnamon rolls to the next level!
I was intrigued and had to test this Rhodes cinnamon rolls hack for myself!
Verdict: I love these fluffy and gooey Rhodes cinnamon rolls with heavy cream and I think you will too!
As if cinnamon rolls couldn’t get any better, I can confirm that adding whipping cream and vanilla extract to the bottom yields a rich and delicious cinnamon roll experience. The bottom is soft, gooey, yet caramelized, and has that amazing fluffy texture of homemade from scratch cinnamon rolls.
I love that these don’t turn out dry at all, and are over the top yum!
Tips for pulling off the best frozen cinnamon rolls:
- Make sure to buy Rhodes cinnamon rolls in the bag. You’ll find these thaw and rise cinnamon rolls in the freezer section of your grocery store. Rhodes also makes a ready to bake tray of cinnamon rolls, but those are different from what I’m using in this recipe.
- The key to fluffy rolls will be to let them rise overnight in the fridge and then let them rise on the counter for another 1-2 hours. You’ll see how they puff up nicely and trust me it will be worth the wait!
- Cover your rolls for the first 20 minutes of baking with foil so that the tops won’t dry out. Then remove the foil and let the top brown slightly to perfection.
- Leftovers can stay good in the fridge for up to 5-7 days, covered.

“I swear these are the best cinnamon rolls and I love how easy they are to make for a crowd. To take them over the top, I have finished them in a cast iron pan on the stove and those are the absolute best ever! It kind of caramelizes the bottom of the rolls and OMG!”
