Prep this French toast bake the night before for a no-fuss breakfast treat in the morn! Recipe by Arlene Cummings.


  • 1 can (8 count) Pillsbury™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup light or dark corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Bake and ice cinnamon rolls as directed on can.
  2. Meanwhile, spray 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In medium bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half, corn syrup and vanilla.
  3. With serrated knife, cut each baked cinnamon roll from top to bottom into 3 pieces, each with some icing. Arrange roll pieces in baking dish at a slight angle to fill dish and centres of rolls are exposed slightly.
  4. Pour egg mixture over rolls. Cover dish tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  5. To serve, heat oven to 400°F. Uncover baking dish; bake 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. If toast puffs up too high during baking, pierce with sharp knife so toast falls. Cool 2 to 4 minutes before serving. Top each serving with small pat of butter.
