Your air fryer can make this quick dish even quicker! So we are pleased to tell you how to make air fryer cinnamon rolls!
Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls: A Faster Alternative
Everyone has their favorite brand. Ours is Pillsbury. Yes, we pop the can open like every other busy American with better things to do than whip up a batch from scratch. We’re here to make your life easier. With an 11-13 minute cook time, plus the 15 minutes it takes to pre-heat an oven, you’ll spend almost 30 minutes baking cinnamon rolls in a conventional oven.
However, because there is no preheat time, the air fryer can get the job done much quicker.
Air Fryer Cinnamon Rolls: Cooking Time and Temperature
Depending on the capacity and brand of your air fryer, you may need to adjust the temperature and times accordingly. A general rule of thumb with air fryers, especially when it comes to “baking”, is to set a lower temperature and reduce the time.
For my FrenchMay air fryer, I find that it takes around 15 minutes at 340°F | 171°C, flipping once. However, my Chefman is a little different. I bake the cinnamon rolls at 360°F | 183°C for 12 minutes, flipping halfway. So if it’s the first time you’ve tried cinnamon rolls in the air fryer, be sure to check them often and make needed adjustments.
