Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake
It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and I know my healthy intentions will kick off the New Year soon. Before that, I wanted to share with you an easy brunch for a crowd made of gooey goodness that everyone will love, Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Bake.
With a big family and guests popping in on weekends, I like to have a few quick recipes to pop in the oven. This breakfast bake is a quick recipe and a tastebud pleaser.
If you like this recipe, let me know in the comments below, check out my other recipes and I’d love if you’d pin it for later on Pinterest or follow along for other great recipes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
For a walkthrough of the recipe, take a look at this quick 50 second video.
- 1 can of ready made large cinnamon rolls with icing (I used Pillsbury Grands® Cinnamon Rolls 5 Rolls with Icing 496g can)
- 1 large apple, cored and sliced
- ¼ cup crushed pecans
- 4 eggs, beaten
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a greased square baking dish, unroll cinnamon roll dough length-wise about halfway, do not separate into individual rolls. Watch the video if you need a quick and easy how-to visual.
- Layer half the sliced apples onto the first layer of dough and half the pecans then fold over the remaining half of the dough. Layer a second layer with the remaining apples and pecans.
- Pour eggs over the top and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
- Pour warmed icing, provided with the can of cinnamon rolls, over the top just before serving.
I will be trying this for New Year’s day brunch.
I will let you know how it works out.
I look forward to hearing; I hope you like it as much as we did. 🙂
Going to pick up a roll of those biscuits and make this for tomorrow morning. Great way to begin 2016! Thank you for sharing.
Grandkids love to help me cook. They will love making this one.
I’m just wondering what the eggs do for it.
It makes the bake a breakfast casserole, similar in texture to French Toast.
I couldn’t get the cinnamon rolls to unroll as your video shows. Is there a trick to that?
No trick, just unroll gently. It may help to make sure the rolls are just taken out of the fridge; this might make it easier if you are having difficulty.
Please note, the recipe calls for “1can ready made cinnamon rolls”, however many (SO MANY) cans are pre sliced and not rolled. It would helpful if the recipe stated the exact brand and type you used or stated specifically “rolled” dough. (Yeah – you guessed it – I got the pre cut, tried to use a roller to mash them together and make ’em work but instead all the cinnamon topping stuck to the roller, and then when it was baked there was still raw egg in the center while the dough was overcooked/burnt.)
Did you view the video; the can is right in the video. Regardless, I see your point. I will update the text to ensure it is clear. It does indicate large cinnamon rolls and yes these ones are pre-cut so I’m not sure the issue; you simply unroll the entire roll, not by slice….you do not use a roller to roll out. If you view the video, it is self-explanatory. Sorry, if you had trouble.
