- Cut the bread - I used a pizza cutter to cut my bread. You can use a knife though.
- Make the batter - this custard is what helps the bread stick together. Whisking works best.
- Add bread to batter - it is okay if they get pretty soggy.
- Pour bread batter into the muffin tins - make sure your muffin tins are sprayed
- Top off muffins with cinnamon and sugar. Bake until no longer soggy. The most important part of the recipe is the cook time. I like to cut open a muffin and check if the inside is soggy. If it is no longer soggy then it is done. If it still is soggy, allow to cook for a few more minutes. Top off with frosting or syrup!

- Syrup - syrup would taste excellent on these muffins as well.
- Bake in baking dish - instead of making french toast pull apart muffins, bake in a sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish instead. Then slice into slices and serve.
- Croissants - instead of using bread, some people make french toast muffins with croissants. Prepare like normal with croissant pieces and place a few pieces of the battered croissants into the sprayed muffin tins.
- Bacon - if you want a smokey flavor, you can add bacon to the mixture.

- Slice each individual bread slice into 4 slices down and across to cube it.

- Add in cubed bread to liquid mixture. Gently stir to get bread to soak up entire mixture. Some pieces of bread will come apart in the process, but this is normal. It will not affect the outcome.
- Spray muffin tins with nonstick spray. Spoon bread mixture into these muffin tins. They do not rise all that much, so filling them to the very top is okay.
- Sprinkle top of muffins with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, cut into a muffin to make sure the middle is not still soggy. If still a tad soggy, bake for an additional 2 minutes. If not soggy, remove from oven. Scoop a little bit of frosting (½ tbsp) onto each muffin. Bake for an additional minute to melt the frosting. Remove from pan and serve your French Toast Muffins. Enjoy!
- My frosting recipe is taking 2 tablespoon melted butter,1 tablespoon milk, ¾ cup powdered sugar, a dash of vanilla, and stirring it all together in a liquid measuring cup. Can add more milk if needing to be more runny or more powered sugar if wanting it more stiff.
