Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole Ingredients

Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need: 

  • 2 (5-count) tubes of Grands Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, cut into quarters 
  • 3 eggs 
  • ½ cup heavy cream 
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar 
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg 
  • cream cheese frosting from the cinnamon roll package 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

APPLE: To make these cinnamon rolls even tastier, you can add apples or even apple pie filling. Add a layer of apples on the cinnamon roll or scatter them randomly in the mixture. 

BROWN SUGAR AND BANANA: For extra goodness, before you add the frosting, add sliced bananas and a little brown sugar. Then add the frosting for even more flavor in this tasty breakfast. 

MAPLE SYRUP: Add an extra sweet twist with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup mixed into the egg mixture.

How To Make This Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole Recipe

PRO TIP:

You can even make these crock pot cinnamon rolls an overnight recipe if you have a timer on your slow cooker. Simply schedule it to start around three hours before breakfast would be served and you will have a gorgeous smell to wake up to first thing in the morning! 

STEP ONE: Spray the inside of a 6-quart crockpot with non-stick spray.

PRO TIP:

You can also buy a disposable crock pot liner to make clean up easier. We’d still recommend spraying with cooking spray before adding your ingredients.

STEP TWO: Cut cinnamon rolls into quarters and place them evenly in the bottom of your slow cooker.

STEP THREE: In a medium mixing bowl, add the eggs, heavy cream, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk together until well combined.

STEP FOUR: Pour egg mixture evenly over the top of the cinnamon rolls.

STEP FIVE: Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on low heat for 3 hours. The cinnamon rolls should be golden brown along the edges of the casserole and no longer gooey in the middle.

PRO TIP:

Put a paper towel under the lid of the slow cooker. It helps with the condensation drips.

STEP SIX: Once done, spoon the icing over the top of the casserole.

How To Serve


Wake up Christmas morning (or any other morning) to the heavenly smell of this delicious breakfast casserole. The entire family will gobble it up. Add a creamy whipped hot chocolate or homemade pumpkin spice latte on the side for a decadent drink.

Got the urge to try more cinnamon recipes? Cinnamon roll cookies are another twist on the classic dish and create perfect lunchbox cookies. Or try a fall classic with apple cinnamon granola for breakfast. 

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Make sure the slow cooker cinnamon roll casserole is cooled, then you can store it in the fridge for up to five days. Pop it in an airtight container and reheat it in the oven to serve. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze this delicious treat before you add the packet of icing. Leave it to cool, then pop it in an airtight container. Freeze for up to three months, then defrost to serve. Heat up in the oven and add the frosting.

This crockpot cinnamon roll casserole is the perfect breakfast solution or great to serve for brunch. With the cream cheese frosting, it has the right amount of sweetness to balance the warmth of the cinnamon (try our yummy crescent roll cinnamon rolls, too!). 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make this the night before?

If you have a crockpot with a timer, this would be the perfect way to make your morning even easier. Assemble all the ingredients in your crockpot, set your timer, and you are good to go!

Can I freeze this cinnamon roll recipe?

This easy recipe can be frozen, but we would recommend leaving the icing off until you are ready to thaw and serve.

I can’t find Grands cinnamon rolls, can I buy regular cans of cinnamon rolls?

You can also use regular cinnamon rolls for this recipe if you can’t find the Grands. We’d advise adding one more can to make up for the difference in size between the regular and Grands rolls.

    Made this before and it’s been a hit at home! Can I prep this the night before or will the raw rolls soak up everything? I want to cook it at work during my shift because I start at 5am, our company dessert party is later in the morning
