Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

There’s only one thing that beats making fresh, piping hot cinnamon rolls from scratch: making them with a Grace Baking French Baguette.  Covered in a sublimely sweet drizzle of icing, this is a treat that only when baked in huge batches will any be left to be enjoyed past breakfast.  Whipping up a panful of these is a piece of cake... so to speak. No dough, no yeast, no agonizingly long wait watching it rise only to wait even longer while it bakes, Nope. This is make & bake & share! Don’t forget to add a generous cupful of juicy raspberries for good measure – but any berry that strikes your fancy is just peachy. Take it from us; this one’s a delight that works wonders on a grumpy Monday-morning family. The best part?  You get to take the leftovers to work and engage in a little taste bud team-building. Who knows, there could even be a promotion in it for you. You deserve it!
