Need an easy recipe for a fun twist on classic French toast? This is it! These Baked French Toast Cups are yummy enough for special occasions, but so easy you’ll want to eat them every day!


  • 5 cups (2-inch cubes) cubed French bread*
  • 3/4 cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • Cooking spray
  • Maple syrup and fresh berries


  1. In a large bowl, toss together cubed bread and almonds. In a separate small bowl or medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and maple syrup (if using). Whisk until well combined. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, and stir until well coated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, pressing down so plastic wrap is touching the top of the bread cubes. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a muffin pan or 6 large ramekins with non-stick spray; spoon mixture into tins. Bake in preheated oven until tops of the muffins appear set and golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Let cool at least 15 minutes before removing from muffin tins. To remove, use a knife to trace around each French toast muffin cups, and then slip knife or small spatula underneath to help remove. Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh fruit, if desired. (Store in refrigerator in an airtight container up to 3-5 days. and reheat in the microwave in 30-second intervals until warmed throughout.)


*For a bit more indulgent treat, try cubed Hawaiin sweet rolls in place of French bread.

**Muffins are sticky, so make sure the muffin tin is well-greased.
