French Toast Roll Up Casserole

When REVOL asked me if I would be interested in trying out one of their products, I immediately said yes! I love how all of their products are so versatile and have a modern twist to them. The whole collection is so beautifully made.  I decided on a classic nonstick cake pan, but all of their items are perfect for baking and placing right onto the table for a beautiful presentation. 

I have a slight obsession with French toast. Every time I make it, it brings me back to my childhood weekends. It's my favorite breakfast comfort food. And I'm completely obsessed with momofuku milk bars' birthday cake crumble. I try and add this crumble onto almost everything. So I figured, why not add it to a French toast casserole?! But not just any French toast casserole. Smear that bread with cinnamon and sugar, roll it up, and cut it into tiny little slices that resemble bite size cinnamon rolls. Soak it all in a spiced milky egg mixture, top it off with some crumble, and let that baby bake. 

I promise you this casserole will not disappoint. Neither will any REVOL products.

French Toast Roll Up Casserole

  • (1) 9-10" Cake pan
  • 9 slices of white bread
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk (type of your choosing)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of birthday cake crumb (recipe below)
  • 6 tble coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Baking Spray
  • 4 tble maple syrup (optional for topping)

Birthday Cake Crumble Recipe (Taken from Momofuku Milk Bars Recipe)

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1  1/2 tble brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tble rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 table clear vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Spray your pan generously with baking spray and set aside until ready to use. 
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
  3. Make the birthday cake crumble: in a large bowl, mix together both sugars, cake flour, baking powder, salt, and sprinkles with a wooden spoon. Add the in the canola oil and vanilla and stir into the mixture forms into little crumb balls. I like to throw some gloves on and use my hands to really get in there and make the mixture crumbly. Set aside until ready to use. 
  4. Cut the crusts off of all your slices. 
  5. Working with one piece of bread at a time, gently flatten with a rolling pin. This will stretch the slice out a bit and flatten it nicely, so its easier to roll up. Repeat with remaining bread slices. 
  6. In a small bowl, combine melted coconut oil, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Add a tble full of filling mixture to the top of each bread slice spread with a knife or offset spatula to cover most of the bread. 
  7. Working quickly so the bread doesn't dry out, roll each slice up vertically and cut each roll into 4 pieces. You'll end up with what looks like little mini cinnamon rolls made out of bread!
  8. Add all the mini rolls to the cake pan, having the cut side facing up. 
  9. In another small bowl, combine the vanilla, cinnamon, milk, and eggs and whisk till everything is completely combined. Pour the ENTIRE mixture evenly over the mini rolls. I know it seems like a lot, but the bread will soak up all of the milky egg mixture. 
  10. Sprinkle 1 cup of crumble evenly onto the top of your soaked bread. 
  11. Bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until the top is nice and golden brown and the middle of your casserole is no longer jiggly. It will puff up nicely in the oven, and will come down a tiny bit once it cools. Enjoy it hot from the oven (always the way to go in my book!) or warm. Drizzle it with some maple syrup for all you super sweet tooths out there!

I just want to thank REVOL again for letting my try out their pan! Thank you for making such high quality products that give my baked goods a nice even cook every time!
