Cinnamon Roll French Toast

This post may contain affiliate sales links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Cinnamon Roll French Toast is so delicious and easy to make when you start with a loaf of fresh cinnamon bread and cook this tasty breakfast in the waffle iron! It’s like a cross between my Cinnamon Rolls and French Toast but ready in about 15 minutes.

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Waffles

French Toast Made in a Waffle Iron!

While I love a classic french toast, brioche french toast and even some french toast casserole, this gorgeous and sweet Cinnamon Roll French Toast is the bomb! Made in a similar fashion to regular french toast, cinnamon bread is dipped in an egg and milk mixture, then cooked in a hot and buttered waffle iron. After you have finished frying it, you top it with icing (just like a cinnamon roll) and enjoy. Really delicious and a new take on a sweet breakfast treat.

Cinnabon Bread

How To Make Cinnamon Roll French Toast

Start out with some cinnamon bread…not to be confused with cinnamon raisin bread…unless raisins don’t bother you. The definitely bother me and are the main reasons I have trust issues. I prefer to use Cinnabon brand bread because I think it’s as close to a fresh loaf of bread as I can get, without actually making it myself.

Make French Toast Batter

In a shallow dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together until combined. Dip cinnamon bread into egg mixture to coat.

Fry French Toast in Waffle Iron

Brush hot waffle iron with plenty of melted butter and place egg coated cinnamon bread on. Close iron and cook according to directions OR until bread is cooked completely and browned.

Make Icing and Serve Warm

While french toast is cooking, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk together to create glaze. Add as much milk as desired to get the consistency you like.

Top with a little icing {and maybe a little extra butter} and that’s it! A super yummy and buttery breakfast for any morning. If you want to take this french toast over the top, try serving with my Cinnamon Roll Pancake & Waffle Syrup. It’s SO good. Obviously, some maple syrup would work too.

Storing Leftover French Toast

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container.

To Reheat– place a couple pieces at a time on a plate and microwave for 30 seconds.

Do I Have to Use a Waffle Iron?

No! Not at all. You are welcome to make a true french toast and fry this cinnamon bread in a nonstick skillet. While I love the look of these french toast ‘waffles’, you get the same taste from a frying pan. Don’t forget the butter. It’s *almost* the best part.

    Oh man. I like a few raisins but sometimes there are just way too many raisins in cookies, bread, or Raisin Bran. That’s a horrible misfortune thinking raisins are chocolate chips hahahah. I love this French toast waffle idea!

    I am with you sister! I had second thoughts about marrying my husband when he asked me to put raisins in my oatmeal cookies!

    What a recipe for my waffle addiction :). I made cinnamon roll waffles with canned cinnamon rolls, but french toast, happening this morning. I think everything tastes better as a waffle, just saying. Keep those recipes coming.
