Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding
Makes 8 to 10 servings
- (12.4-ounce) cans refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing*
- 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
- 1½ cups half-and-half
- 1½ cups sugar
- ½ (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 8 egg yolks
- Brown Sugar Streusel (recipe follows)
- Bake cinnamon rolls according to package directions. Remove from oven, and let cool. Do not ice rolls; refrigerate icing.
- Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Poke holes in rolls with a wooden skewer at ½-inch intervals. Place rolls upright on sides in three rows in prepared pan.
- In a large saucepan, cook cream, half-and-half, sugar, cream cheese, and cinnamon over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, just until bubbles begin to form around sides of pan. Remove from heat, and whisk in vanilla.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and egg yolks. Whisking constantly, slowly add 2 cups hot cream mixture to eggs. Whisk egg mixture into remaining cream mixture in saucepan. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, discarding solids. Slowly pour egg mixture all over rolls. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350°. Uncover and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with Brown Sugar Streusel. Cover with foil.
- Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, heat reserved cinnamon roll icing on high until slightly melted, 10 to 15 seconds. Drizzle icing onto casserole. Serve immediately.
