I eat oatmeal with Caleb every morning for breakfast. It’s our thing. We invite Josh to our oatmeal party, but he rarely attends:) He would rather eat cold cereal or toast. Josh will sit down to watch cartoons though. I think he likes Curious George and Dinosaur Train more than Caleb does:)
When we go out for breakfast, it’s a different story. I never order oatmeal. I don’t want to be boring and oatmeal is kind of boring. I love it, but when we go out, I am ready to splurge. I usually ask Josh one hundred times if I should get French toast or pancakes, hoping that he will get the hint and order one of them so I can have both. He sometimes plays along:) I almost always end up ordering French toast. It is just too good to pass up!
I think Sunday will be a French toast day at our house. It’s Mother’s Day and that means I can splurge. I don’t want to go out because I would rather be lazy and eat breakfast in my pj’s. I am putting Baked French Toast Muffins on the menu for Mother’s Day. Josh, Caleb-are you listening? I am counting on you:)
When we do make French toast at home, it is usually Baked French Toast. It’s so easy and everyone loves it, including myself. I recently decided to change things up by making Baked French Toast Muffins. Instead of making the French toast in a big pan, I made it in muffin tins. Bonus points for cuteness, right?
Who wouldn’t want their own French toast muffin? Especially when there is cinnamon streusel topping on top! Oh yeah! You might even need two muffins because they are that good! Remember, Mother’s Day is a special occasion so it’s ok to splurge. That is what I am telling myself. I deserve a French toast muffin…or two:)
I am sure the kids, dad, the dog, and whoever else wants to help make breakfast for mom will have fun making French toast muffins. They are easy to make. And don’t worry, moms are nice and will most likely share. So if you put in a little work to spoil mom, you will get the reward too! Bonus! French toast muffins for everyone!
Caleb couldn’t wait to get his tiny hands on a muffin! That little sneak:) Of course, I am a nice mom and shared with our little pea. How could I say no to that face?
Treat mom to Baked French Toast Muffins on Sunday! I know I am looking forward to my Mother’s Day morning treat. I will get back to my oatmeal habit on Monday.

Baked French Toast Muffins
For the Muffins:
- 1 loaf French bread cut or torn into ½ inch cubes (about 12 cups of bread)
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the Cinnamon Streusel Topping:
- 1/4 cup cold butter
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- Butter and Maple Syrup for serving, optional
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
- Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Add about 1 cup of bread cubes to each muffin cup. Carefully pour egg and milk mixture evenly over each muffin tin. You may need to press down on the bread cubes after you pour a little mixture and then pour more. Pour slowly or you will have a mess. Or you can combine everything in a large bowl and then fill the muffin cups. Cover the muffins with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.
- When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. To make the cinnamon streusel, in a small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Mix together with your hands, until you have a crumbly mixture. Remove the muffins from the refrigerator and sprinkle the muffins evenly with the streusel topping.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Let muffins cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired.

Wow! Just finished having your French Toast Muffins for dinner and they’re fantastic. It’s just my husband and me, so another plus, I can freeze some for another night:) Thanks, I’ve wanted to try this for ages! Hugz:) ps
Is it ok to post this recipe on my blog with a link back to you of course:)
Yay! Glad you liked the muffins!
These look delish. Are they freezable?? I would love to make a big batch for a quick breakfast 🙂
These looks so yummy and I’m sure my kids would LOVE them! Wondering if they freezer friendly?
These will be perfect for breakfast! Yum! Thanks for sharing, I can’t wait to try them.
Can you make these French toast muffins ahead of time and then freeze them?
I haven’t tried freezing them, but I am sure they would be fine.
Ty for your recipe. First time my gr.kids tried it, they loved it! They eat it on their way to school. I also tried it with sausage. Ty again!!!…..
I made these bad boys this morning and goodness are they to die for! I had a raging craving for French toast and this was more than satisfying. I used apple raisin cinnamon bread, added additional rasins, and also added walnuts to the crumble. Be careful with these….I could eat all of them in one sitting. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!!!
Do you think these could be frozen after baking?
Hi 🙂 These look delicious. I’m sure I can but have you made them the day before? Does the freshness hold up ok? Thank you!
Has anyone ever tried this with challah instead of French bread?
Made this without the Streusel topping and didn’t follow the quantities to a T, but the end result was good. I liked the subtle flavor of the vanilla and cinnamon. Will definitely make again.
Great recipe! We followed the recipe, made them the night before and refrigerated. Popped in the oven in the morning and everyone loved them. No changes needed.
Made this today for breakfast. Really good french toast. I’m going to make these for my Easter brunch. These will be really easy to serve to a crowd. I popped some in the freezer as I want to see how they hold up. I think the next time I will use muffin pan liners as they tend to stick even when the pan is greased.
Thanks for the recipe.
Made these today for a Mother’s Day Brunch and they were spectacular and yummmmmy !!! Will definitely make these again … great easy recipe .. thanks 🙂
can you freeze these french toast muffins to reheat later?
Thanks for the yummy looking recipe!
French toast is my thing too!
What size loaf did you use in these? Will a baguette work?
Thanks for the help,
You can use your favorite French toast bread!
You could add some pecans, coconut also. Even make some icing to go on top.
I have a pack of Hawaiian rolls in the freezer, do you think this would work or would they turn out too mushy?
I haven’t tried them but I am sure they would be ok.
Not enough protein for a main dish.
These were a big hit. I added raisins & next time might add diced apples, blueberries or dried cranberries.
I’ve made this recipe 3 times. Always delicious. The crumb topping is a nice finish. I’ve always used the Walmart soft $1 French loaf and I keep having liquid leftover. I should use less milk/ingredients.
Muffins make it a cute look for having it with company. Love that you can make the night before. They reheat very well in a toaster oven and also a regular oven.
These were awesome. My husband raved over them. Thanks for the easy recipe!
I make these every Christmas brunch! A huge hit! Make ahead and sit overnight in Refrigerator. Have streusel made ahead. Add streusel in morning and bake! We add a glaze! Love these!
I made them twice and both times it required way longer than 25 minutes and both times, they sunk in the middle after cooling. What am I doing wrong?
I’ve been making this rector at least 8 years. It’s fantastic! There is no bread/fruit combo you can go wrong with, here – a great use for bread that’s seen better days. Thanks!
What would be the best way to reheat?
Made this with leftover homemade bread and they were delicious!
