Breakfast food always sounds so good to me no matter what time of day it is. Specifically French toast and Cinnamon Rolls.
So I thought to myself, why don’t I combine them? And now I give you, a true masterpiece. This Cinnamon Roll French Bread Bake is so good, you may just make it three days in a row like I did.
I am a big time breakfast person, especially french toast. I would say I make french toast regularly. What can I say, I’m a girl that loves carbs.
But because I make french toast so much, I’d say I know a good piece of french toast when I taste one. And wow wow wow. This blew my mind. That frosting glaze on top, was simply the best part.
It soaked into the bread, making it that much sweeter. Then put on a little bit of raspberry or maple syrup. Ugh. Salivating just thinking of it.
how do I layer my bread?
I wanted to ensure that all my slices of bread got the good stuff on them. I layered them at an angle.
I did a single layer and slanted them. Kind of like the way dominos look when they fall over each other.
You could do a second layer on top of this, but I prefer to just use another pan, and make two batches so that all the bread slices get a lot of flavor.
can i use cream instead of milk?
You most definitely can use cream instead of milk. You may want to add a little extra because it will be thicker, and the bread won’t soak it in as much, so maybe use 1 1/4 cups of cream.
looking for a good cream cheese frosting recipe?
I am all about shortcuts and saving time, so I got the frosting in the plastic cans at the store. However, I do love a thick homemade cream cheese frosting recipe.

can i make this the night before?
You can most definitely make this the night before.
I would recommend cooking it for about 30-35 more minutes in the morning, instead of the 25 minutes as explained in the directions.
If the milk is all dried up in the morning, maybe add another 1/2 cup milk or cream, and pour over all the bread slices.
my favorite christmas and birthday tradition
Birthdays and Christmas are pretty big at our house. From the minute you wake up, it is so magical. Our mom used to always decorate our bedrooms for our birthday, and it was the best.
But the thing that was even better and Christmas and birthdays was the smell of french toast being made in the kitchen. We would all run downstairs, and watch our dad make french toast.
It was so fun, and of course delicious. My husband and I now make french toast for every birthday and Christmas (and just when I crave it, which is quite often), and it is my most favorite thing.
I can’t wait to carry on the tradition with my kids.
