This single serving Upside-Down Apple Cinnamon Roll cooks in 2 minutes in the microwave! The perfect fall dessert for one!

There are some days that I want dessert, without all the fuss and the mess. That’s when I think, “A single serving dessert would be great!” Then I can take care of my sweet tooth, without having a bunch leftover STARING at me the rest of the week, convincing me to indulge more than I should. We all know I don’t have the willpower to resist a delicious dessert!
Luckily, I can make this upside-down apple cinnamon roll in the microwave, in one dish, in 2 minutes! Yes, I said TWO minutes! Two minutes is all it takes to get this ooey, gooey, apple dessert! It’s almost too good to be true, right?
Well, it’s not! Rhodes Bake-N-Serv® has come out with a new product: Microwave Cinnamon Rolls. Technically, they only take 60 seconds when you make them all by themselves (the apple-cinnamon mixture adds one extra minute). There are six cinnamon rolls in a package, and there are even six individual cream cheese frosting packets, so you really can only make one at a time if you need/want to. Awesome!
This recipe is easy enough for the kids to make, and they will love to make their own individual dessert!
Upside-Down Apple Cinnamon Roll
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 to 1/2 of an apple, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 Rhodes Microwaveable Cinnamon Roll
- Place 1 Tablespoon of butter in a 3½ to 4-inch microwave-safe ramekin. Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until melted.
- To the melted butter, add 1 Tablespoon brown sugar, ¼ tsp cornstarch, ¼ tsp cinnamon, and ½ tsp lemon juice. Stir until combined.
- Peel an apple and slice it thin. Use about ¼ to ½ of the apple slices to layer in the bottom of the ramekin with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Place one of the Rhodes Microwave Cinnamon Rolls on top of the sliced apples.
- Cook in the microwave for approximately 2 minutes until the cinnamon roll puffs up and bakes completely. It should almost touch the sides of the dish.
- Using a hot pad, immediately remove the dish from the microwave and invert it onto a plate. Enjoy while warm!
- Optional: Drizzle one of the cream cheese frosting packets that come with the cinnamon rolls on top, for an extra sweet upside-down apple cinnamon roll.

Alright, I was already in awe of the upside down apple part but it’s also single serving? Heck yes!

This is such a great idea for a cinnamon roll! I’m slowly getting excited for fall because I love apple desserts.
Thanks Jen! I love apple desserts too and the mornings are starting to get chilly here, so Fall is coming!
