Cinnamon Roll Casserole
Try this Cinnamon Roll Casserole recipe whenever you need a sweet and cinnamon-y pick me up. And these are so easy to make even your littlest can help put the recipe together (of course, they may eat all the sweet stuff while they make the cinnamon rolls, so keep an eye on them!). This cinnamon roll casserole recipe begins with frozen or refrigerator rolls that you break up and put in to the casserole pan. Half the fun, and what the little ones will enjoy, is helping to break apart the cinnamon buns in the can rather than neatly laying them out as you might usually do. Here, they are broken up and placed in a casserole dish, just for the fun of it.
After the cinnamon buns are put in to the casserole dish, they are drizzled with lots of other yummy ingredients. Little ones might be able to do the drizzle of the maple syrup and so on, but even if they cannot help with this part, since the package probably comes with some commercial icing, they can help to drizzle that part on once the cinnamon roll casserole recipe is baked. Just be sure the pan is not too hot, as skin can burn quickly and easily! This is a great snacking cake to make when friends drop by unexpectedly and you have not got something already made from scratch that you could serve with tea. This cinnamon roll casserole recipe may be the next best thing to use.
This pre-packaged recipe gets a pick me up from a couple of the ingredients that get added in to make this casserole. First, there are four eggs that are added in to the mix. That addition bumps up the protein in the dish and helps to balance out all the carbohydrates in it. Then, maple syrup is the sweetener that is used. Maple syrup is a slow release sugar that may have really positive implications for type 2 diabetics, although the research is still in the early phases. So these two ingredients make this dish a better one, both in terms of flavor and nutrition. Of course, it is still a treat, and needs to be served up as such, but it is good to know that you can give you and the kids some goodness even when you are also providing a fun treat to eat.
This dish is so easy that you should involve the kids when you make it. Or, even turn the entire kitchen and the baking process over to your older and aspiring bakers who might enjoy trying to make a cinnamon roll casserole just for the fun of it. Enjoy this soon!
