I love this recipe because it combines so many of my favorite breakfast items and taste SOOO good. Cinnamon Roll French Toast is perfect for those cold winter mornings, or for when you have guests for the holidays. It comes together quickly and easily (I use frozen or canned cinnamon rolls, which makes it even faster), and you make it the night before, so no rushing around in the morning!

It’s time for breakfast and you find that your oven is busy with this Oven-Baked Bacon! No problem. Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast tastes great made in a slow cooker OR in the Instant Pot/Electric Pressure Cooker! To get the best oven bake, you’ll need to cut up frozen cinnamon roll dough; whereas if you’re using a cooker, then canned or fresh dough works best. I love how versatile this french toast bake is for home cooks. Since it is full of so many wonderful comfort-food flavors, you will be sure that everyone will clean their plates.

I love the way this sling makes casseroles and dishes in the Instant Pot/Electric Pressure cooker so easy to maneuver!

Cinnamon Roll French Toast with Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Frozen cinnamon rolls are the trick in this easy oven-baked recipe. Yes, even “Chefs” need to have some shortcuts! I use Rhodes Frozen Cinnamon Roll Dough because it is just so easy to buy it at the store, plus they taste like they were made in my own kitchen. But you could easily use this same concept to make your own “frozen cinnamon roll dough”, just like the kind at the grocery store! (Probably better, actually.)

Speedy Cinnamon Rolls are some of my most popular rolls ever. They are so easy and can be done in an hour- start to finish. Anyone can make them! Next time you’re whipping up a batch of cinnamon rolls, reserve a few uncooked rolls on the side. Place them on a cookie tray with a little space between them, then put them in the freezer. Take them off the cookie tray once they are frozen, put them in a plastic baggie, and then pull them out anytime you want to make this Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast! You will treat them just like the store-bought cinnamon rolls in the recipe.

  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup half and half, or fat free half and half, may substitute whole milk, if desired
  • 3 Tbs. granulated sugar

Instructions

Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

  1. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut the frozen cinnamon rolls into 6-8 pieces, evenly spreading them across the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; whisk well, then pour over the cinnamon roll pieces in the baking dish.
  4. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap; refrigerate overnight, or at least 6 hours. (Cinnamon roll pieces will begin to thaw and rise a tiny bit as they sit in refrigeration.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  6. Uncover the French toast and bake, uncovered, on the center rack of the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, puffy, and set in the center.
  7. Meanwhile, combine icing packets with the maple syrup in a small bowl; pour over the warm French toast bake as soon as it comes out of the oven.  Serve at once. 

Slow Cooker Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast

  1. Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut the cinnamon rolls into 6-8 pieces, evenly spreading them across the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; whisk well, then pour over the cinnamon roll pieces in the slow cooker.
  4. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and bake on low for 1-2 hours, keeping a close eye on the French toast. (Times vary greatly based on size and brand of your slow cooker!) French toast is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Combine the icing with the maple syrup in a small bowl; pour over the warm French toast in the slow cooker. (I kind of use a fork to pull my French toast apart a bit as I'm pouring the frosting over the top, to allow it to get down "into to" it a bit more.) Serve at once!

Instant Pot Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast

  1. Spray a 6-cup metal bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. (Or any kind of metal pan that has a hole in the center.) 

  2. Cut the cinnamon rolls into bite-size pieces, evenly spreading them around the bundt pan.

  3. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; whisk well, then pour over the cinnamon roll pieces in the bundt pan.
  4. Cover the bundt pan tightly with foil. Place a trivet into the bottom of a 6-quart Instant Pot (or any electric pressure cooker), then add 1 cup water.
  5. Using a foil or silicone sling, lower the filled bundt cake pan down into the Instant Pot, placing it on top of the trivet.

  6. Lock the IP lid in place and choose the manual button to choose 25 minutes on High Pressure, bringing the IP to full pressure. When the timer sounds, perform a quick release to remove all pressure from the IP.

  7. Using the foil or silicone sling and hot pads, lift the cake pan out of the IP, placing it onto a cooling rack; remove the foil covering.
  8. Combine the container of icing with the maple syrup in a small bowl; pour over the warm French toast. Serve at once!
