Cinnamon Butter:
  • 1/2c unsalted butter, softened 
  • 1/4c light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 
French Toast  and  Custard: 
  • Brioche loaf (8 slices) -flattened and crust removed
  • 3/4c heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
  • juice and zest from 1 small orange
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Cinnamon Coating Mixture: 
  • 1/4c granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 
  • Maple Syrup


Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • 1/4c unsalted butter, softened 
  • 2 oz. Cream cheese, room temp
  • 2 tbsp Powdered sugar
  1. Whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, brown sugar, vanilla, orange zest, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, and salt in a medium bowl until completely combined. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. Mix together cinnamon butter ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and set aside.
  3. Mix together the cinnamon coating mixture ingredients in a small mixing bowl and set aside. 
  4. If making Cream cheese frosting, mix ingredients and combine well and set aside.
  5. Cut the brioche bread into even 1/2 in slices  (should be around 8 slices).
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll each slice of bread until it is flat. Trim the crust off each slice of bread, and slather a thin coating of the cinnamon butter on each slice. Carefully roll the bread into a tight log. Repeat these steps until you have your 8 roll-ups.
  7. Lightly dip each roll-up in the egg mixture and turn to coat all sides using tongs. Repeat with the remaining roll-ups.
  8. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick pan/skillet over medium heat and cook 4 of the roll-ups at a time, for about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tablespoon butter and proceed to cook the remaining roll-ups. (If using a griddle all the roll-ups can be cooked at once. 
  9. Once the roll-ups are done, using tongs, gently cover each roll-up with the cinnamon coating mixture, and serve immediately with the cream cheese frosting or maple syrup.

These look so lovely! I love the idea of using pizza dough. We make TJ pizza all the time and often have like half a bag of dough left. Next time we do, I'll make these for breakfast the next day. Thanks for sharing :)
