Mardi Gras is going on right now. We only have a couple of weeks until Fat Tuesday and the start of Lent. One of my favorite Mardi Gras treats is King Cake. We usually buy one at the grocery store for our at-home celebration. This year I am making this King Cake Bubble Up. OMG! This King Cake Bubble Up is out of this world good! A million times better than the store-bought ones we usually eat. You can eat this for breakfast or as a dessert. We did both! It tastes great warm or at room temperature.

If you want to make this ahead of time, I would suggest baking it and refrigerating it until ready to serve. You can cover it with foil and reheat it for your party. We didn’t hide a baby in the bubble up, but you certainly can! Laissez les bons temps router!

**NOTE: I used regular refrigerated Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. NOT the Grands! cinnamon rolls. The Grands! are larger and the dough won’t cook through. Make sure to use the regular Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in this recipe!**

  1. My cream cheese mixture came out crumbly like eggscrambled eggs also and I mixed the ingredients well as it was liquid when i poured onto the rolls. Any suggestions?

  2. I baked this today and my cream cheese mixture turned out like scrambled eggs, flavor was delicious but the texture was off. Any suggestions?

    1. Just make sure to mix the cream cheese really well. I suggest using a hand-held mixer. I haven't had this happen when I make it.

  3. I am wanting to make this but add in some pie filling, like cherry. Do you think I would need to change the baking time? I am hoping that this will work and am excited to try this recipe!

    1. Here was my experience:
      1. The pie filling was delicious. I had to bake it for about 40 minutes.
      2. I used a store brand cinnamon roll that was the spiral kind instead of shaped like a biscuit like the Pillsbury ones are. So I cut the rolls into little bite sized pieces. I think this made too much breading and the cheesecake filling did not soak through.
      3. I used a food processor to mix the filling ingredients. I don't know if this made it more liquidy but it was.

      It almost had a consistency of a bread pudding after baking. I think when I make it again, I might mix all of the ingredients slightly to make sure the cheese cake filling is all throughout instead of mainly on top. Very good. Everyone at my Bible study loved it! My husband said it was like dessert crack!

  4. Is the cream cheese mixture supposed to be creamy after it is baked? I cooked this tonight and the cream cheese mixture was underneath the cinnamon rolls and was firm almost like an egg custard. I expected it to be creamy and somewhat distributed throughout the cinnamon roll pieces. Did I do something wrong?

  5. Does the filling go in between a top layer and a bottom layer of the quartered cinnamon rolls or just right on top? I know the recipe says on top but the picture looks different to me…and I can't wait to make this!

  6. It would probably be blasphemous for me to take this to my next king cake party (I live in New Orleans) but this looks so good I may just have to do it!
