Caramel Macchiato Cinnamon Rolls

If you love coffee and you love cinnamon rolls, this recipe is for you! A caramel sauce with a hint of espresso, baked with store bought cinnamon rolls. The best part is that it is literally 5 ingredients. It is a great way to jazz up store bought cinnamon rolls.

We found the cutest bundt pan for this recipe, the edges got nice and crispy, and the center is so ooey and gooey! You can use any 9-10 inch bundt pan.

To make this recipe, you start by making the sauce. In a saucepan, add butter, brown sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, salt and instant espresso powder. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1-2 minutes. That’s it! 

To assemble, pour about 1/3 of the caramel mixture at the bottom of a non-stick bundt pan. Arrange the cinnamon rolls while drizzling some caramel sauce on every layer. You will have some sauce leftover.  

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Carefully invert on a plate. Heat the caramel sauce just until pourable, about 20-30 seconds in the microwave. Pour over the cinnamon rolls. Serve warm.

Easy does it! We can’t forget to mention that this will make your house smell heavenly!

Notes –

This recipe can be made with regular cinnamon rolls, however, you will need more than two cans to fill the bundt pan.

If you don’t have a bundt pan, you can use a 11×7 baking dish. You will need to adjust the baking time.

For bite size pieces, similar to monkey bread, cut them into 1-inch pieces.

If you’re not a fan of coffee, keep out the espresso powder. It’s still mouthwatering.

If you don’t have espresso powder, you can use instant coffee granules.
