Directions

  1. In a large bowl beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Cut cinnamon rolls into 1/4 inch slices and toast. In an ungreased 2-quart square baking dish toss together cinnamon roll pieces and dried fruit (if using); pour egg mixture evenly over roll mixture. Press lightly with back of large spoon to moisten all roll pieces.

  2. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly.

  3. For the sauce, combine brown sugar, whipping cream, butter, and corn syrup in a heavy medium saucepan. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium. Boil gently for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in rum, vanilla and salt.

  4. If desired, serve warm with whipped cream and caramel sauce. Makes 8 servings.
