French Toast is one of my favorite breakfasts to make, but I can’t make it every day. So to fill my French toast desires, I made make-ahead French Toast Muffin Cups that I can store in the refrigerator and heat up in the mornings for a quick and easy breakfast option.
How to Make French Toast Muffins
With just a little bit of prep and cook time, you are on your way to having French toast muffins every morning for breakfast!
I feel like French toast is one of those breakfast ideas that people tend to think of as more complicated and time-consuming. And really, it can be but it doesn’t have to be.
My kids love having French Toast for breakfast, but I don’t have the time to make it every morning, so I came up with make-ahead French toast muffin cups so I can make a bunch in one day, freeze them, then reheat in the morning quickly and run out the door for work and school.
The best part? They are SUPER easy to make and even easier to customize!
French Toast Muffin Ingredients
As far as the ingredient list goes, everything is pretty straightforward. Other than the Vanilla brioche bread, it is likely you have all of the ingredients in your pantry already!
French Toast Cups:
- Brioche Bread (Vanilla is amazing)
- Cinnamon – 1 Tbsp
- 6 Eggs
- Sugar -2 Tbsp
- Milk (or dairy-free milk)- 1/2 Cup
- Vanilla extract – 1 Tbsp
- Maple Syrup – Optional for topping
- Brown Sugar 2 Tbsp
- Optional Toppings ( Fruit/Chocolate/Ect)
I picked up a vanilla brioche bread from Walmart and y’all, it was perfect for this recipe! If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend using it for this recipe. If not though, that’s fine, any brioche bread will work!
Since my daughter has been trying to not eat as much dairy, I decided to make this recipe with Rise Oat Milk as opposed to regular milk. I have been replacing milk with this Rise in quite a few baking recipes lately, and they always turn out delicious!
Dairy-Free French Toast
You are going to be surprised at how easy it is to make dairy-free French Toast cups.
Start out by combining your wet ingredients, milk, eggs, vanilla, in a large mixing bowl.
Add in your sugar, 1/2 of your brown sugar, and cinnamon to your wet ingredients and combine well.
Pull your break apart into small chunks and start mixing into your batter.
Combine until every piece of your bread is nice and moist.
Fill up your muffin pan about 3/4 of the way full.
I overfilled mine some. It wasn’t bad, but they did overflow a bit, so I would recommend filling yours a little less than I did.
If you want, top your French toast muffin cups with fresh fruit, chocolate, or maple syrup along with the other half of your brown sugar.
Bake at 400° for 20 minutes, until nice and golden brown.
When they are done, let your cups cool, wrap them in cling wrap, and freeze.
These will stay frozen for about a month, or in the refrigerator for a week. Whenever you are ready to eat, unwrap, heat in the microwave ( or toaster oven since I don’t have a microwave), and enjoy!
