Ingredients

French Toast Muffins

  • 8 slices whole wheat bread, cubed
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cut into tiny cubes

Toppings

  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup sliced berries, optional

Instructions

  • Put cream cheese in freezer for about 10 minutes while preparing other ingredients. This will make it easier to cut into cubes.
  • Cube 8 slices of whole wheat bread and place on a baking tray. Preheat oven to 350 and place bread in oven while preheating to dry out a bit. Stir every few minutes while preparing other ingredients. You can skip this step if bread is already stale.
  • Line muffin tin with liners. See instructions above if you want to make your own. No baking spray necessary.
  • In a medium sized bowl mix together milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Set bowl aside.
  • Get cream cheese out of freezer and with a very sharp knife cut into tiny cubes. You should be able to get at least 24 cubes or more.
  • When oven is heated bring bread out and put into large bowl.
  • When you are completely prepped pour egg mixture onto bread and toss to get evenly soaked. Immediately start placing bread cubes into muffin cups and sprinkle a couple cream cheese cubes into cups. (I placed the cubes inside and put another cube of bread on top.
  • Complete all 12 muffins. You may have a little egg mixture left. Throw out remaining.
  • Place in preheated oven and bake for about 18 minutes. While baking prepare toppings.
  • Mix together powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  • Wash and slice berries.
  • When you remove muffins from oven heat maple syrup in a microwave safe dish with a pour spout for about 30 seconds.
  • No need to let these cool! Remove each muffin cup to a plate, dust with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup and top with berries.
