Pinterest is going to be the death of me. It makes me want to redecorate my house, plant a garden, be creative, paint my nails, get married and the worst of all BAKE! In other words, Pinterest is making me FAT! I really am not much of a baker but when I come across a simple recipe I like to try them. I found another one that is perfect for those mornings when you have a house full of guests, like maybe Easter! 

The recipe is called "Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake" and since I didn't really have to make anything from scratch I thought I would try it. Click here for the recipe in a pdf file if you would like to download it and print it.

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 cans (12.4 oz each) Pillsbury® 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
  • Icing from cinnamon rolls
  • Powdered sugar
  • Maple syrup, if desired

Melt butter and pour on ungreased 13x9 inch glass dish. Separate cans of dough into 16 rolls reserving the icing for later use.

Cut each roll into 8 pieces and add to buttered baking dish.

Beat eggs in medium blow. Add cream, cinnamon and vanilla and beat until well blended. Pour over cut pieces of cinnamon roll pieces.

Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle 3/4 cup syrup over the top. Bake at 375° for 20 to 28 minutes or until gold brown. Cool 15 minutes.

Remove the covers from icing and microwave on medium or 50% power for 10 to 15 seconds. (Should be thin enough to drizzle.) Drizzle icing over the top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup if desired. YUM!

You can follow me on Pinterest too but I must warn will get addicted to it and maybe want to bake something too!
