Sinfully Delicious Cinnamon Roll Lasagna – What?! Yes!

Lasagnas are usually meat and cheese in my family.  Loads of pasta sauce are in those and it is usually a savory dish.  Nowadays, there are lots of new ways to create a lasagna.  My particular favorite is making a sweet kind like this.  It is the form of a cinnamon roll, but in layers instead of swirled.  It is easier to serve and much more fun to eat one layer at a time.  Give this a try for your next breakfast this weekend and you will love it! You will see what I mean.

Check out what our friends over at The Baker Mama had to say about this dish:

“This is quite possibly the greatest greatness to ever come out of my oven! It’s cinnamon rolls that are layered like a lasagna and every single bite tastes like the doughy middle that everyone loves! Enough said, right?!”

This is such a treat, yes! The gooey center for everyone, woohoo!




3 cups Gold Medal® self-rising flour

½ cup butter flavored shortening or softened Land O’ Laes unsalted butter

1-1/4 cups Land O’ Lakes buttermilk


½ cup (1 stick) Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter, melted

1 cup Domino dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons McCormick cinnamon


3 cups Domino powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup Land O’ Lakes buttermilk


Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter an 8-inch square baking dish and set aside.

In a large bowl, add the flour and cut the shortening in with a pastry blender or two knives until well combined and mixture is crumbly. Stir in the buttermilk until a thick dough forms. Let rest in bowl while preparing the filling and glaze.

In a small bowl, melt ½ cup butter for the filling. Once melted, whisk in brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined and smooth. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together glaze ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

Roll the dough out into a rough 16×16-inch square. Cut dough into 1-inch strips and cut each strip in half.

Spread a few tablespoons of filling evenly over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Place enough strips of dough into the bottom of the baking dish so it is completely covered and the dough strips are touching. Spread with about ¼ cup filling. Drizzle with about ½ cup glaze. Repeat with remaining dough strips, filling and glaze until you have three layers in the baking dish, covering the top layer with filling and glaze, but reserving about ¼ cup glaze for drizzling over the lasagna once it’s baked.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is starting to crisp and brown. Let set at least 10 minutes before serving. Drizzle with remaining glaze just before serving.
