Maple French Toast Muffins

Talk about a breakfast muffin!  The great taste of muffins, plus french toast {complete with maple syrup} combined in one easy to eat breakfast treat!

We love french toast at our house, but true confession, we usually have it for dinner because there just isn’t time in the mornings for everyone to sit down together {and french toast is just doesn’t work in the car!}.   These muffins provide that wonderful flavor in a ready-to-go version!  They are fabulous warm out of the oven, but you can make them up the day before to simplify your morning- you’ll still love them the next day!

Maple French Toast Muffins

French Toast Topping

3 tablespoons milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
6 slices (3 1/2 cups) cinnamon swirl bread, crusts trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Sugar Topping

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Heat oven to 375°F. Combine all French toast topping ingredients in medium bowl; set aside.

Combine 1 cup milk, melted butter, 1 egg and maple flavoring in another medium bowl. Combine all remaining muffin ingredients in large bowl.  Stir milk mixture into flour mixture just until mixed.

Spoon batter evenly into greased 12-cup muffin pan cups. Spoon French toast topping evenly over batter; press down slightly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Immediately brush muffins with maple syrup. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Sprinkle over glazed muffins. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. Serve warm.
