Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Roll Pudding

A slow cooker turns day-old cinnamon rolls into a comforting, old-fashioned dessert. It tastes wonderful topped with lemon or vanilla sauce or whipped cream. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

    This sounds so good . I have a new Slow Casseolle Cooker, can this be made in it and would I use the same time as it is a 9x13 size?

    It was the best ever bread pudding but it burned on the bottom. Good idea to try lining crock pot with aluminum foil. I'll try that next time.

    I use my day old biscuits for this pudding. My daughter likes it so well that we served it at her wedding reception!

    Line your slow cooker with a foil collar to prevent burning. Newer slow cookers seem to run much hotter. This helps deflect that heat.

    My bread pudding burned at 3 hours. I will find a recipe that that won't happen.

    I absolutely loved this recipe. Made it for my husband and friends and it was a huge hit. I accidently forgot the sugar, but offered topping such as half and half, whipped cream, ice cream and caramel sauce and the compliments quickly came in. My husband suggested the next time I make it to cut back on the raisins and add a cubed, peeled apple and/or pear. Definitely will try that!Thanks for sharing!

    Edna Hoffman, you are a culinary genius! What a wonderful recipe! This bread pudding made my taste buds happy and my childhood memories vivid. We had a Fall Feast potluck at work, and we were supposed to bring a "comfort" dish that we associated with the Fall season. This was what I chose, and I doubled it (no problem). It certainly seemed to evoke fond memories in all of my co-workers! There wasn't a crumb left, despite three loaded tables of food. I just baked the cinnamon rolls the night before and put them in the fridge without covering them. Easy to fix - used two tubes of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. Thank you so much for sharing!
