Cinnamon French Toast Bake. One night (very, very late at night), as I was wandering around cyber-space, I came across a recipe for this Cinnamon French Toast Bake. And, just like going to the grocery store on an empty stomach, you shouldn’t wander around cooking blogs on an empty stomach either! I found myself bookmarking LOTS of recipes!
This decadently sweet dish makes a delicious, special breakfast for Christmas morning, New Year’s Day, or a brunch any time of year!
Note: I use a 9×9 pan and only one can of cinnamon rolls and half of all other ingredients . We are a small family of 3 and that as it was just for us.
Cinnamon French Toast Bake
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 cans (12.4 oz each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- Icing from cinnamon rolls
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup, if desired
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.
Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle 3/4 cup syrup over the top.
Bake at 375 for 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
Remove the covers from icing and microwave on medium or 50% power for 10 to 15 seconds. (Should be thin enough to drizzle.) Drizzle icing over the top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup if desired. Yum!
