Man I am super in the mood for french toast…
Bread soaked in custard…. mmmm… when was the last time I had bread pudding?
I really should make some muffins soon.
They should make bread pudding muffins.
Thats basically just french toast “to go.” Wait, can i just come up with a french toast muffin?
Yes. Yes I can. And they’re good and delicious and easy and portable if you want them to be.
So the main thing to know about this recipe is that you need to spray your muffin tin well. Like, really well. Really, REALLY well. Spray it till you think, “Okay, that’s really overkill.” Then spray it again. Now you’re ready to put your egg custard soaked bread in there.
These also reheat really nicely. It also works well to drizzle them with maple syrup before reheating- it helps to keep them moist as the syrup soaks into them.
The recipe makes 6, but I fully plan on doubling that next time. They were gone in 2 days.
