If you are ever left with leftovers of your delicious Cinnamon Roll Brioche Toast Casserole, then don’t you worry because not a single bite will go to waste! Here are all the storing tips you need to know for this recipe!
Store: Store your leftover Cinnamon Roll Brioche Toast in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days.
Reheat: When you are ready for another delicious breakfast or brunch, then reheat your leftovers in the oven or microwave for a few minutes.
Freeze: I wouldn’t necessarily recommend freezing a Cinnamon Roll Brioche Toast, but if you must, then allow it to cool completely after baking, wrap it tightly in foil, then place in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last for about 2 months.
The Right Kind of Morning Motivation!
Tips for a Perfect Cinnamon Roll Brioche Toast!
1: If you like your icing to be looser, simply add 1 tablespoons of milk at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
2: If you can, leave the soaked bread for 2 hours, or overnight, covered in the fridge to cook later.
3: If you are into a more balanced tangy sweetness, then add a splash of lemon juice to your frosting.
Enjoy a Dreamy Creamy Bite!
Frequently Asked Questions
If your casserole turned out to be soggy, then you have either soaked it for too long, or baked it at low oven temperature. Make sure you avoid these issues, and problem solved!
Now I don’t know what overnight means for some people, but this recipe recommends you soak the bread for a maximum of 8 hours. Longer than that, and you will be left with soggy results.
For this recipe, any thick bread will work just fine. I recommend using brioche or French toast, but you can also use challah or Texas toast.
