#38 Cinnamon French Toast Bake



1/4 cup melted butter
2 cans (12.4 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
5 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup maple syrup



Melt butter and pour on ungreased 13×9 inch glass dish.


Separate cans of dough into 16 rolls reserving the icing for later use. Cut each roll into 8 pieces and add to buttered baking dish.

Beat eggs in medium bowl. Add cream, cinnamon and vanilla and beat until well blended. Pour over cut pieces of cinnamon roll pieces.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Then add the maple syrup and bake another 15 minutes.

Remove the covers from icing and microwave on medium or 50% power for 10 to 15 seconds, Drizzle icing over the top.

DSCF0169I read the comments on the page with the original recipe and a few people mentioned that the bottom was too mushy. The fix seemed to be to add the syrup halfway through. I meant to do that but I added it at 10 minutes instead of 15- which shouldn’t be a big deal but it was still really mushy. I guess though that depends on what you like.

It was otherwise really tasty. Something that would be good for a Christmas or Easter morning.

The original recipe can be found here.
