A good Slow Cooker is a must!
If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Instant pot Aurora. It cooks my meals evenly every time. I have made this slow cooker cinnamon roll breakfast casserole in this crock pot before and it cooked it perfectly!
Also, the removable insert on this slow cooker is very easy to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.
Whatever you decide to use, I do recommend a programable crock pot for this recipe. Since it is a short time, programmable is always great.
I also own this crock pot and it works well. For this crock pot, I would recommend that you use a crock pot liner to make clean up a breeze.
Crock pot liners are amazing. You just put them in your crock pot before your food. Use your crock pot as normal and enjoy a no clean up recipe!
You will also need a good cutting board and a knife to cut the cinnamon rolls but that is it!
Ok, now that you have all the necessary supplies, let’s learn how to make these Pinterest crock pot cinnamon rolls!
How to make Crock pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole.
Just like all my recipes, this one is easy to make and budget friendly.
First, open up the cans of refrigerated cinnamon roll dough and set aside the icing for later. It’s delicious and adds an amazing flavor to this crock pot cinnamon roll casserole!
Then cut each cinnamon roll into quarters. You can use a knife or a pizza cutter for this process.
Next spray your crock pot with your favorite non stick cooking spray. I always spray the bottom and sides of the my slow cooker so that serving this slow cooker cinnamon roll casserole is easy.
After that, place one of the rolls of cinnamon rolls (already cut up) in the bottom of the crock pot.
Then in a small bowl whisk (or stand mixer) together the eggs, milk, syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon. Don’t skip this step as this cream maple syrup vanilla mixture adds a great flavor and moisture to this delicious crock pot recipe.
Next take the egg mixture and pour over the cinnamon rolls in the crock pot.
Next place the remaining cinnamon rolls on top of the egg mixture in your slow cooker.
Then drizzle one icing packet over the 2nd layer of the cinnamon rolls.
Finally, place the crock pot lid on top and cook on low for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
After the cook time, remove the crock pot lid and drizzle the last icing packet over the crock pot cinnamon rolls.
Then serve immediately and enjoy with a glass of milk! Yummy 🙂
Variations for Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Recipe:
This recipe is very versatile and you can easily add or remove items to make this recipe your own and make it work perfectly for your family!
Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Rolls:
My favorite variation is to make slow cooker apple cinnamon rolls. To create this recipe, add a layer of diced up apples after the first layer of the cinnamon rolls. The addition of the apples creates a delicious apple cinnamon flavor that no one can resist!
I love making crock pot cinnamon rolls with apples to serve as a dessert for a potluck, party or just a warm summer night when I don’t want to heat up my home with my oven.
Banana Cinnamon Rolls:
Another way to alter this recipe is to add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the top prior to the icing and then top with sliced bananas. This brown sugar and banana combination adds a delicious flavor to this crock pot cinnamon roll casserole.
Cinnamon rolls with Heavy Cream:
You can make this recipe with heavy cream instead of milk. Just substitute have cream or heavy whipping cream in place of the milk. The heavy whipping cream adds a nice creamy flavor in this easy recipe.
