Cinnamon French Toast Bake...

Almost everyone who commented yesterday mentioned the recipe.  Many of you may already have it, but I thought I would share it.  I did get it from Pinterest.  What did we do before Pinterest? :) 
Here goes:

Cinnamon French Toast Bake

1/4 cup melted butter
2 cans refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
5 eggs
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup maple syrup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pour the melted butter into an ungreased 13x9 glass baking dish.  Separate both cans of refrigerated cinnamon buns, setting the icing aside.  Cut each bun into 8 pieces and place the pieces on top of the butter in the baking dish.  In a medium bowl beat the eggs, then add the heavy cream, cinnamon and vanilla and beat until they are well blended.  Gently our this mixture over the buns.  Sprinkle top with pecans and then drizzle with maple syrup.  Bake for 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool for 15 minutes.  Microwave icing on medium (50%) for 10 - 15 seconds or until it is thin enough to drizzle.  Drizzle the icing over the French Toast Bake.  Can serve with additional syrup if desired.

This is a tasty recipe and it smells so good when cooking.  Enjoy!

until next time...nel


  1. That sounds good and not too difficult! Yummy

  2. I haven't tried the one with the cinnamon rolls-sounds dangerously good!
