This quick and easy 2 Ingredient Apple Cinnamon Roll Bake is perfect for a warm and delicious breakfast or dessert!
I whipped up this cobbler-style dessert while camping one night and everyone raved about it. It’s now a family favorite.
I had seen this easy recipe using a can of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and apple pie filling all over Instagram and on a whim I grabbed the two ingredients before heading out camping with the family.
After combining the two ingredients together I baked them up in a dutch oven. We ate this deliciousness by a campfire and everyone was so happy!
Apple Cinnamon Roll Bake
Ever since that evening by the campfire, we’ve made this recipe at least a dozen more times because it’s always such a hit.
I’m excited to share it with you today!!
You’ll only need to grab two things from the store to make this yummy breakfast or brunch or even dessert treat…
- Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls (the big kind that actually roll up)
- Apple Pie Filling (canned)
One of the main reasons I love this recipe is because it’s just these two ingredients and it takes only a few minutes to prepare.
Which means I have more time to be present with my family and don’t have to spend so much extra time in the kitchen.
How To Make Cinnamon Roll Bake
Let’s go ahead and make this easy 2 Ingredient Apple Cinnamon Roll Bake already!
CUT CINNAMON ROLLS
Start by unwrapping the cinnamon rolls. Remove the included icing and set it aside for later. Cut the cinnamon rolls into quarters and place in a large bowl.
ADD APPLE PIE FILLING
Scoop the apple pie filling out of the can and into the bowl with the cinnamon rolls, then stir gently to coat everything.
Pour the cinnamon roll mixture into a prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.
BAKE CINNAMON ROLLS
Place the cinnamon rolls into a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until the center is baked through and the top is golden brown.
DRIZZLE WITH ICING
While the cinnamon roll bake is still warm from the oven, stir up the icing that was previously set aside and drizzle it over the top. Make sure to enjoy this dish while it’s still warm for that extra gooey deliciousness!
I’m telling you, the warm cinnamon spices and sweet apples just go together so perfectly.
If you’re looking for a delicious breakfast to serve company for the holidays, this is definitely it. Not only does it taste delicious, but your home will smell fabulous and inviting.
One Tube or Two?
For this recipe, I’m using two tubes of pillsbury cinnamon rolls because it’s plenty to feed my large family. This recipe should feed about 8 to 10 people.
If you want to halve the recipe, to feed a smaller crowd, you definitely can.
*Baking times will be shorter for a half batch (about 25 to 30 minutes).
What To Serve with Cinnamon Roll Bake?
When I serve this warm and toasty cinnamon roll bake for breakfast or brunch I will serve it along with a few fresh fruit options as well as some savory options.
Here’s a good list of sides you can serve with this…
- Scrambled Eggs
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Crispy Bacon or Sausage Links
- Yogurt Cups and Granola
- Fresh Fruit or Creamy Fruit Salad
If you’re serving it as a warm dessert you could also serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
How To Make Ahead & Store
Wanna get a head start on this recipe? You can easily prepare the cinnamon rolls ahead of time by combining it all in the casserole dish. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, simply uncover and bake!
I wouldn’t prepare this further than 24 hours in advance prior to baking.
After the cinnamon roll bake has finished cooking, you can cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Since I think this is best served warm, I would scoop out a serving and pop it in the microwave for about 15 to 30 seconds to heat up and enjoy!

After scrolling thru all the comments to see if anyone used fruit filling besides apple, I came across one that used cherry pie filling…that sounds just as great! I’m gonna use peach pie filling! LOve me some peaches n cream….the cream being vanilla ice cream that is!
Super easy and delicious.sa
Have you tried making this with regular Pillsbury cinnamon rolls (NOT the Grands)? That’s what I have on hand at the moment. Would you adjust cooking time?
This was a BIG hit with my family!! Love it really easy and quick
Half way through baking, I put a streusel top on. Just in case it wasn’t sweet enough
So good. So easy… Smile’s on
All that’s tried it.
Vanilla ice cream
Is the best. And hot chocolate
Made with evaporated milk
No water no milk
Just evaporated milk. With marshmallows
Or more ice cream try fudge royal
This was a hit with my family. Will make again. Easy to make too. I had some caramel and poured some on top . So good!
I have this dish in the oven as we speak! However, I was a little too happy and actually added the icing and mixed everything together! I hope it turns out as good as it looks.
Thanks for a great recipe!
I’ve made it with cherry pie filling. Just slice and lay flat in the prepared pan. Then drop dollops of filling on top and slivered almonds. Bake, then drizzle with icing. A quick and easy, red and white dessert for a snowy weekend in Ontario, Canada. Delish!!
I didn’t like this at all. I followed the recipe just as stated.. The top was hard and the bottom of the dough tasted doughy..I even covered it and cooked it longer..
Hi Patty, I’m sorry you didn’t get amazing results. From what you’re saying it sounds like you baked this in a thick ceramic dish. It will take longer for the bottom of the cinnamon rolls to get the heat, creating this uneven result. I would suggest using a glass baking dish or metal to get a more even result. I hope that helps!
I did use a glass baking dish .. It’s ok not all recipes are for everyone… Thank you
I’d use a 9 x 13 greased PAN. I used 2 cans of cinnamon rolls, but only one can of fruit filling. If using the larger rolls (Grands), cut each unbaked roll into SIX pieces. First spread the cut-up unbaked rolls into the pan in only one layer. Then dollop the filling in small spoonfuls on top, leaving about 1/2″ inch space between the dollops.. Push some of the filling down in between the pieces of cinnamon rolls. Baking time will probably be less. Check it after baking for 25 min. DO NOT COVER WHILE BAKING IT. When done baking, wait about 20 min. before drizzling frosting on. I guarantee it will be delicious!
have you or anyone else made this with cherry pie filling instead of apple pie filling?
or even with blueberry pie filling?
I added some heavy whipped cream, vanilla, extra cinnamon , melted butter, and a few pecans. Cover with foil and bake.
Cook until liquid absorbed (about 25 minutes @ 400 degrees)
Then 5 minutes without foil, let cool for 5/10 minutes add icing ENJOY
