Celebrate sweet summer peaches all year long by making this Cinnamon Roll Peach Bake recipe! Cinnamon rolls and peaches were meant to go together.
It’s peak peach season in Texas. There are peach festivals happening and debates over which region makes the best peaches. I love peaches. Fresh peaches, baked peaches, peaches for you, peaches for me. Peaches are a summer staple. A summer necessity.
I grew up eating the worlds best peach cobblers made by my Mom and Nana. It’s a recipe that has been passed down to me so I make those cobblers now, too. But why relegate baked peaches just for dessert?
By combining peaches with cinnamon rolls I can eat baked peaches for breakfast, or at least brunch. Though I thoroughly endorse making this for dessert as well.
I used exactly two ingredients to make my Cinnamon Roll Peach Bake. Yes, 2. Canned peaches and canned cinnamon rolls. And oh my goodness, these two things were made to go together.
I used an 8″x11″-ish pan. Pour the sliced peaches in the bottom. I used one giant can of sliced peaches, but you could use 2 normal sized cans.
On top of the sliced peaches go the canned cinnamon rolls. Each container had 8 rolls. I used 2 containers. Based on the shape of my pan 15 cinnamon rolls fit perfectly, in 5 rows of 3 cinnamon rolls. I used the last cinnamon roll to fill in the gaps. I pinched off pieces of the final cinnamon roll and put those pieces in between the gaps made by the other rolls. Then I put the entire pan in a 400 degree oven and baked according to the directions on the cinnamon rolls (mine said 400 degrees for about 15 minutes).
When I took out my cinnamon rolls they were lightly golden brown and firm on top.
I let the cinnamon rolls cool ever so slightly while I got out the icing that came in the cinnamon roll package.
On top went all of the sweet cinnamon roll icing.
When the cinnamon roll peach bake is cool enough to eat scoop out a serving. This bake is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or brunch. Really, any time is a good time for peaches and cinnamon rolls.
