Pinterest Tested-Cinnamon French Toast Bake

OH MY GOODNESS.....this is amazing AND super easy. The original recipe is from What's Cooking, Love? 

1/4 cup melted butter
2 cans 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

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Pour the melted butter into an ungreased 13x9 glass baking dish. Separate both cans of refrigerated cinnamon buns into 16 cinnamon buns, setting the icing aside. Then cut each cinnamon bun into 8 pieces and place the pieces on top of the butter in the baking dish.

3. In a medium bowl beat the eggs. Then beat in the heavy whipping cream, cinnamon, and vanilla until they are well blended. Then gently pour over the cinnamon bun pieces. Sprinkle the top with the pecans and then drizzle with the maple syrup.

4. Bake for 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes.

5. Microwave the icing on medium (50%) for 10-15 seconds or until it is thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle the icing over the top of the French Toast Bake. Serve with additional syrup if desired.

I made this before I started by "eat healthy, get into shape diet" Even then I reduced the amount of butter and cream, (substituted half of the cream with 2% milk.) In the future I would buy reduced fat cinnamon rolls and make a healthier version.


  1. Yum! I may have to try this one

  2. Oh yes girl, you must. CP will be over, cuz I won't make it, as he needs to eat healthy! :)
