Common Questions Asked About
This Recipe

What should I serve along side this French toast bake? 

What is Half-and-Half? Is it the same thing as heavy cream or whipping cream? 

  • Half-and-half is a mixture of half whole milk and half cream. It’s what you use when you need something richer than milk, but not quite as thick as cream.
  • Half-and-Half has a light creamy texture and is often used as a milk substitute in cream soups and baking recipes‌.
  • You can make your own Half-and-Half! Use half whole milk (or even 2% milk if you need to) and half whipping cream or heavy cream. 

Is pure maple syrup the same thing as pancake syrup? 

  • Actually, no.  While pancake syrup is a mixture of corn syrup and artificial maple extract, pure maple syrup is actually maple tree sap that has been boiled down to a nice, thick consistency.  
  • Since pure maple syrup requires more work and time, it is more expensive.  However, the flavor is nice and strong, so you won’t need to use as much. 
  • There is a place for pancake syrup, that’s for sure, but you may find the pure maple syrup absolutely irresistible, just as we have.  Yep, we have become maple syrup snobs!

Instructions

How to Make Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast in 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. 

How to Make Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast in 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!

How to Make Glazed Cinnamon Roll French Toast in 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
