Making a tin of cinnamon rolls has never been easier! No need to heat up the house baking in the oven when you can use an electric pressure cooker.

Do you have a hard time opening refrigerated tins of cinnamon rolls? I sure do! They never open for me, I always have to attack the tin with a knife or scissors. Now, once you get past opening the tin, making a tin of cinnamon rolls has never been easier! No need to heat up the house baking in the oven when you can use an electric pressure cooker. Make a small batch for you and a friend or make them all for family and guests. Here’s how I make Easy Pressure Cooker Cinnamon Rolls.

Equipment Needed

Some of the posts on this site, such as this one, contain an affiliate link. This means I MAY get paid a VERY SMALL commission if you purchase the product or service.

  • electric pressure cooker (I used a 6 qt Mealthy Multipot)
  • springform pan or cake pan (If making 8 smaller regular size cinnamon rolls you either make two batches using the same pan or use two pans. I prefer using a springform pan because it’s easier to get the finished cinnamon rolls out. Some springform pans may be a little taller than a regular cake pan therefore making it a tighter fit if making 8 cinnamon rolls.)
  • trivets (If making 8 smaller regular size cinnamon rolls at once you’ll need a very short trivet and a taller one.)
  • measuring cup
  • paper towels
  • aluminum foil
  • silicone vegetable steamer (This is only for a batch of 4-5 cinnamon rolls.)

Ingredients

  • 1 can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls (If using Pillsbury you can use the tin with 5 big rolls or 8 smaller regular rolls)
  • 2 cups of water

Instructions

NOTE: These instructions are written for making a batch of 4 regular smaller size cinnamon rolls or 5 big cinnamon rolls. You can split a tin of 8 smaller regular cinnamon rolls into 2 batches. Instructions for making 8 smaller regular size cinnamon rolls in one single batch follow immediately.

Put 2 cups of water into the bottom of the pot.

Place 4-5 cinnamon rolls into the springform pan. I sprayed the sides of the pan with nonstick cooking spray just to be safe.

Place a paper towel over the cake pan, then cover the cake pan with foil.

Place the pan onto the silicone vegetable steamer and put them both into the pressure cooker.

Set the pressure cooker to cook for 10 minutes on manual high pressure.

Let pressure release naturally for 3 minutes then do a quick pressure release.

Put the icing on.

Serve and enjoy!

      This would be handy in the summer so I would not have to heat up the oven. My family loves cinnamon rolls.
