Cinnamon Roll French Toast Roll-Ups Recipe


  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 8 slices thick, soft bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar


Step 1: Make cinnamon butter and bread

Start by mixing the butter, light brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl until combined. Then, cut the crusts of your bread. Roll each slice into a flat piece and spread the cinnamon butter mixture in a thin layer across the surface. Roll tightly.

Step 2: Create your French toast

Combine the eggs, milk and vanilla in a bowl and whisk. Dip each roll into the mixture—there’s no need to soak. Just pop ’em in and out. Make sure the entire roll is coated.

Melt the butter in a pan and fry each roll until golden on all sides.

Step 3: Make the coating and icing

For the coating, combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Drop each roll into the mixture and turn to cover completely. Set aside.

For the icing, mix softened butter, cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until well combined. Place in a piping bag to drizzle over your rolls or in a separate dish to dip.
