Cinnamon Roll Casserole

Hi everyone!  Well gee, I have another recipe for you but forgot to take a picture of all of the ingredients that you will need to make this one, sorry.  Here is another recipe that I found on Pinterest, you can view the original recipe HERE.

First off you will need to grease a 9"x13" baking dish.  Then you will need to separate your cinnamon rolls out, like you see below.

Then cut eight of the rolls into fourths and put around in your pan.

Then cut the remaining eight rolls into eight pieces and sprinkle those around the other ones in the pan.
Now mix together your eggs, melted butter, cream, cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup.
Pour over your prepared cinnamon rolls.
I went ahead and sprinkle whole pecans on the top instead of chopping them.
Here they are in the oven ready to come out.
Now take the little icing containers and drizzle the icing over the casserole.  I just let my icing sit on the counter top and didn't bother with microwaving them and the icing drizzled just fine.
Here is the finished casserole.
Now I like cinnamon rolls ALOT but I'm not really crazy about packaged cinnamon rolls.  Both of my daughters and their boyfriends cleaned this up in one morning, so they really liked it.  Now this recipe would be very easy to halve, if you needed less.  So give it a try and see what your verdict is on this casserole.

  • 2 tbsp of melted butter or baking spray
  • 2 cans (12.4 oz each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • Icing from cinnamon rolls
  • Maple syrup (if desired)
  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Pour melted butter into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
  3. Separate both cans of dough into 16 rolls; set icing aside.
  4. With the first 8 rolls, cut each roll into 4 pieces; place pieces over butter in dish.
  5. With the last 8 rolls, cut each roll into 8 pieces, making sure to fill in any bare spots and then just layering on top.
  6. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Beat in cream, cinnamon and vanilla until well blended; gently pour over roll pieces.
  7. Sprinkle with pecans; drizzle with 1/4 cup syrup.
  8. Bake 20 to 28 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile, remove covers from icing; microwave on Medium (50%) 10 to 15 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle.
  11. Drizzle icing over top.
  12. If desired, spoon syrup over individual servings.

Hope to be back soon with another recipe for you to try.       Mary

Mmmmmm, you're killing me! Looks yummy! I guess it would be even better if you made the cinnamon rolls from scratch...but then it wouldn't be easy! Back on the old diet, so anything sweet looks good to me!!!!
