Let the kids customize their own French toast cups! Mix up these little 'muffins', top with fruit, nuts, or bits of chocolate, then bake to give everyone their own breakfast flavours. The maple syrup is baked right in so you don't need to sweeten it up any more-try serving with more fruit and some yogurt for a really great breakfast!

Mix and match toppings for a portable breakfast


3 eggs

1 cup whole milk

2 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp maple syrup

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

pinch salt

6 oz heavy white bread, cut into cubes (about 1/2 of a loaf of French bread)


1. Brush the cups of a muffin tin with butter or spray with oil. Set the pan aside and turn on the oven to 350 F.

2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Add the cubed bread and let it sit for a minute, then stir until everything is well coated. The egg and milk mixture will be sucked up by the bread.If you have any left over, make sure to spoon it into the cups when you divide the bread mixture between them.

3. Divide the bread cubes among the muffin cups, using only about 3/4 of it. Choose the toppings you want and sprinkle about 1 Tbsp or so on, before topping with a little more of the bread cubes.

4. Bake the cups for about 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned and set. Pop them out of the muffin tin once they've cooled a bit and serve!
