French Toast Muffins

French toast is one of my favorite indulgent weekend breakfasts. Baked in a casserole or cooked on the griddle, nothing beats a stack of french toast smothered in warm maple syrup. These french toast muffins encompasses all I love about regular french toast right in a portable little package. Baked up golden brown, brushed with maple syrup and lightly dusted with powdered sugar, these muffins are sure to put a smile on your face.

    What I like about French toast is the chance to use less than perfect bread (in addition to the flavors).
