Earlier today, I shared the Funfetti Cake Batter French Toast Casserole with you that I made to celebrate my hubby’s birthday after a crazy week. Now I bring you the other part of our breakfast on Saturday – Funfetti Cake Batter Cinnamon Roll Casserole!
I have been wanting to make the original Cinnamon Roll Casserole from The Dishy Decorator for some time now. I had planned on making it at Christmas time, but with all the chaos never got around to it. Personally, I’m glad that happened because I was able to make it with the Funfetti addition!
I have to say, the hubs was more of a fan of this casserole than the french toast one, but he’s more of a cinnamon roll kinda guy than a french toast kinda guy. As soon as I finished with the pictures, I gave him a bite. His eyes just lit up and he took off with the plate and big smile.
And despite the two casseroles looking fairly similar by picture, they are distinctly french toast and cinnamon roll casseroles. So if you are trying to decide which to make (of course I say go for both), ask yourself – do I feel like cinnamon rolls or french toast? There lies your answer.
And they are both super easy to make. The only difference is that the cinnamon roll casserole is baked right away, instead of sitting for a few hours or overnight.
And as far as cinnamon rolls go, this cinnamon roll casserole is especially easy because there’s no need for yeast or waiting for dough to rise to make the cinnamon rolls – just use the classic canned ones. Cut them up and spread them over the bottom of the pan. Then you mix up a few ingredients, pour over the cinnamon rolls and bake!
And just a note, the casserole in the pictures is only a half recipe. The recipe posted below is the full recipe. There’s no way the hubs and I could have eaten an entire full recipe of the Funfetti Cake Batter French Toast Casserole AND Funfetti Cake Batter Cinnamon Roll Casserole. At least not without going into a Funfetti food coma.
