This is a very cool breakfast which has all its prep work done a day ahead.
Baked French Toast is a very easy and versatile English breakfast, my house's favorite breakfast for years. Its is filling and healthy food for kids too.
This French toast cups can be prepared the night before and baked fresh just before eating. Every step can be done the night before and just sprinkle the granulated sugar at the last moment before baking. This gives a nice shine to the French toast. The sweetness can be adjusted according to ones taste buds.
Sour dough bread - ½ loaf
Blueberry - 1 cup
Eggs - 4
Milk - ½ cup
Sugar - 2 tablespoon
Vanilla - ½ teaspoon
Ground cinnamon - ¼ teaspoon
Raw sugar - for sprinkling on the top
Maple syrup for serving
Procedure :Cut the bread into 1 inch cubes.
In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk and sugar.
Add the cinnamon and vanilla and mix in.
Grease the muffin tins liberally. Place some bread cubs in each muffin tins. Make sure the base of the muffin tins are a fully covered with bread cubes.
Pour the milk and egg mixture into each muffin tins. Push the bread cubes to soak the milk into the bread.
Drop some blueberries into each muffin tins. Allow this to set for at least 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator, this will help the bread to absorb all the egg custard.
Now preheat the oven to 350 degree.
Remove the muffin tin from the fridge and sprinkle the raw sugar and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes or till the egg is totally cooked and the tops have become golden brown.
While serving allow the French toast to cool a bit and slowly scoop it from the muffin tins and place it on a plate and drizzle the warm maple syrup on it. Serve while it is warm.
