Mini White Bread Cinnamon Rolls

So who knew that the best thing since sliced bread would be itself? I really love finding ways to use things that I already have around my house to make easy and awesome snacks. I would totally put these into the awesome category. I mean they are cinnamon rolls made from regular old plain jane white bread. Before you get too excited, just note that these aren’t as magnificent as Grands!, they are small and dainty. But they will definitely suffice in a pinch and make the kiddos just as happy for sure.

Ya got your butter, your cinnamon sugar, and your loaf of bread. And if you want that yummy glaze for them you’ll also need powdered sugar that’s not pictured here. Use your magic wand (I have one, don’t you?) and voila! Cinnamon rolls!

Cut the crust off of each slice of bread and use a rolling pin or heavy can to flatten them out. The better you are at cutting the crusts off, the more roll you’ll have. I’m not amazing at it, but I’m working on it. Get them nice and flat, then use a brush or something like that to brush on some melted butter. You don’t want them to be swimming in it, but just enough to coat. Something for the cinnamon sugar to stick to.

Then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar to your liking on the buttered and flattened bread. It is already looking fabulous. Fold each edge into the center and then roll them up. Place on a greased cookie sheet or in a muffin pan. I used a muffin pan to make sure they didn’t try to roll on me.

After baking them at 375 degrees for a little while, they come out crusty on the outside and little soft on the inside. Mix some of the melted butter with powdered sugar and you have a yummy butter glaze to drizzle over the top.

White Bread Cinnamon Rolls

White Bread Cinnamon Rolls

Out of Pillsbury sweet rolls? Have a loaf of bread? Make your own mini cinnamon rolls in no time with this easy fix. Only 4 ingredients!


  • A dozen or so slices of soft white bread
  • Melted Butter (1/2 c. should be plenty)
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Powdered Sugar (optional for glaze)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut the crusts off the pieces of bread. Roll very thin with rolling pin or can.
  3. Brush both sides of the bread with melted butter. Then sprinkle one side with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Fold each side of the bread into the center, then roll up.
  5. Place onto greased cookie sheet or muffin tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes until they start to turn golden.
  6. Add powdered sugar to the leftover melted butter for glaze and drizzle over the top.


You can freeze these too! Although, they don’t stick around long enough to get frozen here.

  1. We would just like to say thank you for sharing such great images and recipes :). We shared your images with our recipe sharing community and provided you a link back to your blog. Thanks again and keep up the good work :).

  2. So do you use just regular butter or is that cream cheese because I only have regular butter. Would that still taste good? I’m just in the mood for some sweets….lol

  3. Autumn, I used butter! It was a light butter, but it shouldn’t matter which one you use. I hope that you like them! Enjoy some sweets!

  4. This was a delicious and easy recipe to make, thank you.
    I doubled each ingredient then removed the crust from honey wheat bread slices with a pizza cutter. I overlapped the ends of two bread slices then flattened them together with a rolling pin. After adding the butter and cinnamon sugar, it was easy to roll each into a cinnamon roll.

    Wow they look delicious! Thank you for sharing this.

    I have been crabing for cinnamon rolls the past weeks but due to the community quarantine the shops are close. I would like to try this as I have all the ingredients, but i do not have an oven. =( will using a slow cooker or a rice cooker work? As I have seen posts of baking using one. Or maybe a Happycall double pan? Thank you!

    I would think a slow cooker would work. Make a single layer on the bottom.Maybe on high for 1/2 hour? You’ll have to experiment, but it should work!!!❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️

  7. What does “fold each corner into the centre” mean? Do you mean fold in half?
