I think we can all agree best part of a cinnamon roll is the way the cinnamon, sugar, and butter bake together into this ooey, gooey, sweet, cinnamon filling. My Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole is a little different from other recipes. Instead of using store bought cinnamon rolls I’ve combined that awesome cinnamon-sugar filling with delicious brioche bread to really bring french toast and cinnamon rolls together.

Tips for making Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole:

  • Choose the right bread – The best bread for french toast has to be Brioche or Challah bread. It is thick and slightly denser than other bread so it can hold up to all of the liquids you add to this recipe. If you can’t find either of those I recommend french bread.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra creamerThis is my secret ingredient! Dunkin’ Donuts Extra Extra creamer isn’t just for coffee! It is made with real cream and real sugar, it’s the ultimate way to make your breakfast extra special. The rich, creamy flavor takes this overnight french toast casserole to a whole new level. If you want to go one step further it comes in a variety of flavors including vanilla and caramel so you can add even more flavor to your french toast casserole.
  • Make it ahead of time – This is a dish that is best when it is made the day before. You put all of your ingredients together, cover it tightly, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. This gives the bread time to soak up the custard giving it that great french toast flavor and texture. Then the next morning you pull it out of the refrigerator and bake it until it is light, fluffy, and perfect toasted.

How to make Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole:

  1. Cut or tear bread into large chunks. You want them to be about 1-1.5 inch cubes.
  2. In a bowl mix together the softened butter, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl add eggs, milk, Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer, salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and vanilla extract (optional). Whisk together until fully combined. Set aside.
  4. Place half of the bread in a greased 9×13 inch casserole dish. Top with half of the butter, sugar, cinnamon mixture. Just scoop small spoonfuls of the mixture out and dot it all over the bread.
  5. Add the rest of the bread and top with the remaining butter, sugar, cinnamon mixture.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the bread making sure to moisten all of it.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
  8. When ready to bake preheat oven to 375 degrees F. when it reaches the correct temperature place the casserole in the oven and bake for 45 – 55 minutes. Once done remove from the oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  9. While the Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole cools make your icing. Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar until it is fully combined and there are no lumps. Add Dunkin’ Extra Extra creamer (this makes it extra rich and creamy!!). Whisk until smooth then pour over slightly cooled casserole.
