Love, love, love this. Very sweet. Great to take to a breakfast/brunch carry in.

This was pretty popular at a brunch party, but I realized that some of the egg mixture settled on the bottom and there was a thin layer of cooked egg on the bottom. Maybe if I pack the cinnamon roll pieces closer, this will be resolved.

Very good and easy! I do not add any maple syrup or use the powdered sugar (way to sweet). My wife likes it without any syrup (even after baking). I do spoon a little syrup on after baking.

This was so delicious! As soon as my kids took a bite they said, you have to make this again! It was soo good. I didn't use the nuts and I just drizzled the maple syrup before baking, I didn't use a whole cup.

Everyone loved it!! I followed the recipe except only drizzled the maple syrup on top before baking and added 1/4 cup of chopped dates.....yummy. It makes a lot of servings, next time I may try to half the recipe and bake in a 9 x 9 inch glass baking dish. This is definitely one to try!!

Super easy and tasty. Didn't have whipping cream and used a dollop of whipped cream instead.

I have made this many times, it always turns out well. I make it for my homeroom students at an annual holiday breakfast and they beg me to make it more often. I don't use cream, instead I use 2% milk and it turns out great. I also cut back on the syrup to one-half cup. Otherwise, easy and delicious. I always assemble it the night before and bake in the morning. Because it's cold coming out of the fridge, I give a little extra baking time too.
