Do you love French toast.... do you love muffins....?? Well let me tell you, make these and make these NOW! These are perfect for breakfast, get togethers, for guests at your house or any brunch event coming up. They melt in your mouth, are super simple and will keep you coming back for more!! I could type more about how freakin awesome they are, but really I just want to get you to the good stuff, read below and add all these ingredients to your grocery list this weekend!
Ingredients for the muffins:
-6 cups of cubed bread-- I LOVE using Brioche loaf of bread, the brand I like is from Whole Foods-- Euroclassic Brioche French Recipe loaf
-1 cup milk of your choosing
-1/3 cup of Half & Half
-1 tsp + 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
-2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp almond extract
-2 tbsp coconut sugar
-1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
Ingredients for the crumble on top of the muffins:
-1/4 cup whole wheat flour
-1/4 cup coconut sugar
-4 tbsp butter
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-pinch of salt
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees & grease 12 cup muffin tin
1. Dice up the 6 cups of bread into 1 1/2 inch cubes & place into a medium bowl & set aside. Then in a large size bowl whisk eggs, milk, half & half, vanilla, almond, sugar & salt together until well combined
2. Next gently add in the bread cubes and gently toss them mixture to combine. Then evenly disburse the mixture into the 12 cups-- it should be about 1/3 cup mixture in each. Next you will work on topping.
3. In high power blender add flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon & salt. Pulse until the mixture is blended together forming nice buttery crumbs :) If need be stop the blender & use a spoon to mix around mid pulse to help get it evenly mixed.
4. Now sprinkle the mixture on top of each of the muffins and place in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. They will expand a good amount when you use the brioche so don't be alarmed :) They fall down a bit when out of the oven.
Then enjoy with maple syrup drizzled on top, fruit of choice or even powdered sugar!! Your yummy choice!
Store in refrigerator & to reheat— 5 minutes at cake setting on Air Fryer— so they are nice & crisp, then zap in microwave for 8 seconds & you are ready to roll!! Or at 320 degrees in oven— keep an eye till crisp then can zap as well
