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.
