Upside-Down Apple Cinnamon Roll

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 serving


  • 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.
