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!

Make This Yummy French Toast… three different ways!

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.

Instant Pot Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast

  • 1 can Grands Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls, 5 count each
  • 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
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake for the Oven

  • Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cut each cinnamon roll into 6-8 pieces, evenly spreading them across the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; whisk well, then pour the prepared mixture over the cinnamon roll pieces in the baking dish.
  • 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.)
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • 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. 

Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast for the Slow Cooker

  • Spray a 6-quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cut each cinnamon roll into 6-8 pieces, evenly spreading them across the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • 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.
  • Cover the slow cooker with the lid and bake on low for 1-2 hours, keeping a close eye on the French toast. (Cooking times can vary greatly based on size and brand of your slow cooker!) Be sure to test the French toast for doneness by inserting a knife into the center; when the knife comes out clean, the French toast is done.
  • 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!

Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast for the Instant Pot

  • 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.) 
  • Cut each cinnamon roll into 6-8 pieces, evenly spreading them around the bundt pan.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Using a foil or silicone sling, lower the filled bundt cake pan down into the Instant Pot, placing it on top of the trivet.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Combine the container of icing with the maple syrup in a small bowl; pour over the warm French toast. Serve at once!

Don’t think you meant “low” on the slow cooker setting, nothing was cooked and I had to rush the entire thing into the oven at the last minute. Thanks for the recipe but please correct the cooking instructions.

Hi Court –
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I checked the recipe and that is correct as stated. I’m sorry you had a bad experience. I’ve made this recipe several times in my slow cooker and have good success, but I know that slow cookers can vary greatly in how hot they cook and also depending on the shape and size of the slow cooker. I’m sorry you had to rush your breakfast and use the oven.
Please accept my apologies,
Chef Alli
