Cinnamon French Toast Bake

I love french toast and I love how this recipe is items you can have on hand to make when you need an easy breakfast for a group.    Of course, you could also make this for dinner like we did when we were in the mood for breakfast.  The ingredients are simple and so it the preparation.

Cinnamon French Toast Bake


  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 can 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 oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pour the melted butter into an ungreased 9×13 glass baking dish. Seperate both cans of refrigerated cinnamon rolls into 16 cinnamon buns, setting the icing aside. Then cut each cinnamon into 4 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 roll pieces. Sprinkle the top with the pecans and then drizzle with maple syrup.
  4. Bake for 20-28 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.
  6. Drizzle the icing over the top of the french toast bake. Serve with additional syrup if desired.
