Cinnamon Streusel French Toast Cups
Use any kind of bread you have on hand to make these delightful cinnamon toast cups. Use real maple syrup - it is so much better than the corn syrup stuff.
Dovetailing Tip: Use the Irish Brown Bread you made for Meal 2 to make the toast cups.
|1/2 loaf||french bread torn into small pieces|
|1/4 cup||half and half or cream|
|1 tablespoon||vanilla extract|
|6 tablespoons||cold butter, cut into small cubes|
|1/4 cup||+ 2 tablespoons flour|
|1/4 cup||+ 2 tablespoons brown sugar|
|real maple syrup|
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin and fill each opening with bread, right to the top.
Whisk the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Pour 3-4 tablespoons over the bread in each cup.
Combine the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon - cut the butter into the mixture with your hands, incorporating it until small crumbs form. Top each French Toast Cup with a spoonful of crumbs.
Bake for 20 minutes or until puffy and golden brown. Top with powdered sugar and my personal favorite - real maple syrup! So good.
