French Toast in Muffin Cups:
We love making a big breakfast on the weekends. We are so busy during the week, that we make a point sitting down as a family and having breakfast together. French toast is always requested by my family.
These French Toast Cups were easy to prepare. They were easy to serve and everyone loved because of the crispy outside edges but soft and warm on the inside.
You can even prepare them the night before and all you have to do is place them in the oven in the morning. The perfect breakfast idea for brunch and holidays as well.
Muffin Pan Recommendations:
My favorite cupcake pan is this one from Wilton. You can also use a mini muffin pan to make these into min muffins. If you do use the mini muffin pan, just remember to cut the baking time in half.
I also love my silicone muffin pan for muffins. It is so convenient and clean up is a breeze.
Ingredients you need for French Toast Muffins:
- Loaf of Bread
- Vanilla Extract
- Ground Cinnamon
How to make French Toast Muffins recipe:
- Prepare the Bread – Chop up the bread into cubes the size of bite size pieces. Set aside.
- Grease Muffing Pan – Spray 12 muffins tins with cooking spray.
- Combine Ingredients – In a large bowl mix together half the sugar, vanilla , egg, milk with a pastry blender.
- Add Bread – Mix in the cubed bread in the bowl. Use your hands and get dirty.
- Making the Cinnamon Topping – In a separate small bowl add 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix well.
- Add to Muffin Pan – Spoon half of the wet bread mixture into the 12 muffin cups.
- Add the Topping – Top with ½ teaspoon cinnamon sugar mixture.

This will give the muffins a different flavor with very little work. This is a great way to switch up the recipe every now and then for a little something different.

They are so good and always a hit with everyone. It is the perfect breakfast idea to take to a friend or maybe someone that has just had a baby.
French Toast Muffin Tips:
- Powdered Sugar – We love to top the muffins with powdered sugar and syrup but this is optional.
- Bread Options – When preparing your bread, use about 10 slices plus one heel then cut into chunks. You could even use old stale bread. Another option is to use different types of bread for different flavors or french bread.
- Keeping it Moist – If you are afraid if your muffins drying out, you can add some melted butter to the top.
- Milk Substitute – If you prefer you can use heavy cream instead of milk.
- Change the Topping – You can also mix brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together rather than white sugar. Make a streusel topping with cinnamon and salt and sugar.
Can you freeze French Toast Muffins?
Yes, you can freeze the muffins. Store in a freezer safe container. When you are ready to serve, let them thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Then heat up in the microwave in 30 second intervals.

Thanks for sharing Nicole. I’m glad you enjoyed this recipe!
Thank you for the yummy recipe. It was a perfect way to use a half loaf of 2 day old French bread and ripe bananas. Delicious!
Awesome – Thanks for sharing!
These are SO GOOD!! And so much easier than standing over a griddle and preparing french toast in shifts! Everyone got to eat at the same time this morning and this is going to be a regular rotation around this house! Thanks for sharing!! <3
Great to hear – Thank you for sharing!
Very tasty! Seemed like mine were a little bit more mushy in the center than I like so I’ll probably cut down some on the milk next time. We have leftovers! Have you tried freezing these?
I haven’t tried to freezing this before but I think it would work great. Thank you.
I’m looking for a breakfast main dish, but these muffins don’t have enough protein.
This looks delicious! Thank you for sharing!
These look so good! What a great grab and go breakfast for the week!
Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?
These look really good but I have a question. Are they soggy in the middle (kind of like regular French toast) or do they have the texture of any baked muffin? (I have a thing about soggy bread. ?)
They are slightly soft in the middle. Thank you.
