Glazed French Toast Cinnamon Swirl

A super sweet way to start your day, this plate sized cinnamon French toast should not be eaten in a single sitting: it’s sized to share. It tastes like a cinnamon roll, but without the hassle of making the dough from scratch- so good! I did find the assembly a little tricky (I could not get my bread slices to stick together!), but once the bread’s been rolled into a single giant roll and it’s snugly resting in the springform pan, the hard part is over. Then all that’s left to do is salivate while you wait. First for it to soak up the egg mixture, and then a little more waiting while it bakes in the oven. Garnish with a hearty helping of frosting and serve while it’s still warm.

Cinnamon Swirl
 16 slices White bread
 ¾ cup Butter, soft
 ¾ cup Brown sugar
 1 tbsp Cinnamon
French Toast Mixture
 3 Eggs
 1 cup Heavy cream
 ¼ cup Milk
 2 tbsp Sugar
 1 tsp Vanilla
Glaze
 ½ tsp Vanilla
 1 cup Confectioners' sugar
 2 tbsp Butter, melted
 1 tbsp Milk

Cinnamon Swirl
1

Cut the crust off the bread. Take four slices of bread, overlap the edges slightly, then press the edges together to seal them. Repeat with the remaining bread slices. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread the butter evenly over every slice of bread, then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top.

2

Smooth the cinnamon sugar flat with a knife, then cut each strip in half lengthwise. You will go from having four long, conjoined bread strips to having eight long, super skinny bread strips. Roll up one skinny bread strip, then press it to seal with a second skinny bread strip. Continue joining and rolling bread strips with the remaining bread. Set the large cinnamon roll you end up with inside of a greased 8 inch springform pan.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients together and whisk thoroughly. Pour the mixture over the bread roll and let soak for 10-15 minutes, or until the liquid has been completely absorbed. Bake for 40 minutes or until the bread has puffed up, turns golden brown, and a toothpick comes out clean. (If the top gets brown too quickly, cover the top with aluminum foil and continue baking until cooked all the way though.)

Combine all the ingredients, mixing well to combine. Once the cinnamon roll's done baking, remove it from the oven and pour the glaze on top while the cinnamon roll is still warm; serve immediately. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
