This indulgent breakfast casserole is deceptively easy with just 6 ingredients. With just a few minutes of prep we'll transform pre-made cinnamon roll dough into a decadent treat that no one else has to know used shortcuts.
There are two decidedly different ways to make peach cobbler cinnamon rolls. The first is what we're doing here- making the traditional cinnamon roll the star, but cobbler-ifying it. Yes, I know that's not a word. The point is, these are first and foremost, cinnamon rolls.
The second is what I would have called Cinnamon Roll Peach Cobbler, where you take peach cobbler, and use cinnamon rolls as part of the cobbler crust on top of the peach mixture, but the dish is decidedly a cobbler. That would also be delicious, but it's not what we're doing today. Maybe next weekend.
So if what you're searching for is a true peach cobbler recipe- well, still pin this for later, because as a cobbler fan this will be glorious the next time you're craving cinnamon rolls- but this isn't it. But if you're looking for an easy way to dress up store-bought cinnamon rolls with some delightful peach cobbler topping, then keep scrolling, because I've got you.

Why you'll love this recipe:
- The perfect combination of fluffy cinnamon rolls and delicious peach cobbler.
- Just 6 ingredients- no active dry yeast dough, no lemon juice, no fresh peaches (though you can sub those as long as they're juicy peaches), not even vanilla extract!
- Minimal equipment- no stand mixer, no dough hook attachment, no rolling pin- we are not making a big mess today.
Let's get started! Here's what you'll need:
Cinnamon Rolls- you knew this was coming, I'm lazy and don't make them from scratch.
Peaches- it's important that these are packed in juice, because we're going to use some of it.
Heavy Cream- is a game changer in terms of giving our refrigerator section cinnamon rolls a little homemade oompf.
Butter- I used salted, if you use unsalted butter I would add a pinch of salt to your crumble. No need to get it out early, we'll want it cold- room temperature butter doesn't create crumbles well.
Brown Sugar- Can't have a cobbler crumble without it.
Flour- ditto the brown sugar. I actually forgot to include this in the ingredients photo, but not the crumble, because otherwise our cobbler topping would be just creamed butter and sugar.
You'll need a small bowl to mix the cobbler topping in, a casserole pan (mine was a 2.75 quart baking dish), a measuring cup, and probably a can opener. If your canned peaches aren't the diced kind- I could only find halves packed in juice at my store- you'll also want a knife and cutting board.
How to make this breakfast treat:
Step 1: Prepare the base
Preheat your oven to 350 F, then open the peaches and measure out ¼ cup of peach juice. Add the juice to ¼ cup heavy whipping cream and stir them together. If you're using nonstick cooking spray go ahead and coat your oven safe dish, then pour in your cream-juice mixture.
Step 2: Add the rolls and peaches
Open your cinnamon rolls and place them in the pan. If the peaches aren't already diced, chop them into small pieces. Sprinkle them on top of and in between the cinnamon roll dough.
Step 3: Make your cobbler topping
Mix together your cold butter, flour, and brown sugar. You can use your hands or a fork- stop when you can't see individual ingredients anymore, but while it's still crumbly. Spread your flour mixture out over the top of your cinnamon roll base.
Step 4: Bake
Place on a middle rack in your preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. The top should be a light golden brown, but if you prefer a crispier cobbler top you can broil the dish for a few seconds to a minute at the end.
Step 5: Top and Serve
Drizzle the cinnamon roll icing that came with the rolls on top, and enjoy! Leftovers- if you have any- should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3-5 days.
Yes, the only thing is you'll want to blend and strain ½ to 1 peach to get some peach juice for the base. Alternatively, you can increase the heavy cream to ½ cup instead.
If you like to make homemade cinnamon rolls you can absolutely use those in this instead. If you want to amp up the cinnamon flavor you could also add a teaspoon ground cinnamon to the crumble topping with either dough type.
Nope! That's common for traditional peach cobbler because the cobbler bakes for so long. This cinnamon roll version is in the oven less than an hour, so there's no need. If your casserole dish is a dutch oven, go ahead and leave the lid off for baking.
Maybe. If you have an oven style one, then absolutely- just reduce the heat to 325 and the bake time by about 10 minutes. If you have a basket style like I do it's not likely to fit, but you could cut the recipe in half.
