Ingredients and Variations

Cinnamon Rolls – Pillsbury may be the most familiar name brand, but any brand will do, even plain biscuits will work in this recipe. Don’t worry too much about the size of the rolls since they will be cut into smaller pieces anyway.

Batter – Use fresh, large eggs for the fluffiest results. Or use two whole eggs and one egg yolk for a more rich, dense custard-like batter.

Cinnabon Creamer – This dreamy creamer isn’t always easy to find, so feel free to use any vanilla or cinnamon-flavored creamer. Or simply add in some extra cinnamon or pumpkin pie spices to regular cream.

Nuts – Pecans, walnuts, or even macadamia nuts are delish in this dish!


For the topping toast pecans with some flaked coconut in a dry saute pan to intensify their flavor and make them extra crunchy!

Make a unique cinnamon roll French toast casserole every time by mixing in fresh or frozen berries, apples, or bananas. Or stir some orange zest or another flavor extract into the batter (try banana, orange, or even rum).

  1. I am trying this with leftover loaf of Pannetone bread, torn up. I had to increase the liquid mixture, doubling it. Bread already has raisins and cinnamon plus cardamom so I used vanilla creamer. Fingers crossed it works.

  2. Hi,
    How much is a stick of butter?
    Is it from a 1 pound package of butter that has 4 wrapped sections of 1/4 pound in each?
