Cinnabon French Toast
Cinnabon French Toast – made with the famous Cinnabon cinnamon rolls! This recipe will knock your socks off. It’s easy & undeniably delicious!
Ever since I first heard the word ‘Cinnabon’, I have been an enormous fan. Just that one word sparks dances in my taste buds & mouth-watering cravings. I remember when we got our first Cinnabon store in the town I lived in when I was a teenager. It was in the mall, and every time Mama & I set foot in that area, we would find ourselves indulging in a warm gooey Cinnabon cinnamon bun.
I was just visiting Mama the other month, and we just had to make time to get in that mall so we could enjoy us a cinnamon roll or two… and maybe one of those Cinnabon middle of the buns as well. What? They smell, look, & taste just too good to resist the urge. YUM!
Recently, I’m going through my email and I see an email from someone with Cinnabon asking me if I’d be willing to turn my most favorite cinnamon bun into Cinnabon french toast. Um, yeah. They didn’t have to even ask twice. I was all over that one. And so were my kids for that matter once I made it! I halfway didn’t wanna share with my youngins… but I did anyways. You know, I was trying to be a good mama – regardless of all the emotions my taste buds were currently having.
What did I think of the whole Cinnabon french toast creation, you ask? I think – why on EARTH had I not thought of this before? All this time, I’ve been missing this decadent gooey cinnamon-y concoction? My taste buds felt a little betrayed but thankful they finally had a taste at the same time.
They are so very easy to make!
Here’s what you need:
In a shallow dish, such as a pie dish – whisk together an egg with the milk & a splash of vanilla extract.
Slice the Cinnabon rolls in half – making sure to use a butter knife so that you don’t slice your tongue open when you go to lick the frosting off of it after slicing. You know, just a warning because I know if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna be doing this too. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmmm.
Dunk each cinnamon bun half into the milk/egg mixture – taking care to dunk both sides in there to get it good and saturated.
Melt a little bit of butter in a skillet or griddle, and cook on each side for a couple of minutes until golden brown – or until desired doneness.
Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar – and a little pancake syrup too for the ultimate breakfast treat.
