Baked Peaches and Cream French Toast Muffins are an irresistible make-ahead breakfast bursting with sweet peaches, crowned with Cinnamon Streusel, doused with syrup and topped with luscious cream! All the muffin ingredients are combined in one bowl then baked in muffin tins for an easy, “insanely delicious” breakfast.
These Peaches and Cream French Toast Muffins were rated “insane” by my very critical (in the best way) food critic, Patrick. Even the microwaved leftovers had him repeating, “insane, insane, insane.” And as I explained in my “insane” Herbed Gruyere Scallped Potatoes and Bacon Au Gratin, “insane” is a very, very good thing. Its a recipe that is so crazy good that it blows your mind. You don’t want to stop eating after 2 muffins, 3 muffins, 4 muffins…
I’ve seen “French Toast Muffins” around the internet for a while now, but I was kind of wary about them because I don’t like soggy French toast – at all. But these little morsels aren’t soggy at all but a bundle of French Toast deliciousness! The trick I discovered is to use 2 day old French bread that you cut up when its fresh and let sit for a couple of days so it becomes a little stale. Then you add your glorious peaches and cinnamon batter to the bread and let it drink up all the goodness for a couple hours up to overnight – making it the perfect easy make ahead breakfast. You can even make the streusel topping and cream topping ahead so when you are ready to eat, all you have to do is pop these babies in the oven.
The batter itself is the same batter I use in my Creme Brulee French Toast (another insane recipe HERE if you haven’t tried it) which boasts hints of molasses, orange extract, vanilla and cinnamon so the muffins themselves are seeping with flavor and peaches! The sweet, smooth, delicate peach morsels get mixed right into the batter so they bake into the muffins for bursts of sweet peach glory.
And no insane muffin would be complete without a killer Cinnamon Brown Sugar Streusel topping which I make simply by adding all the ingredients to my food processor and pulsing a couple times – love this 10 second method. If you don’t have a food processor, you can cut the butter in with two forks or a pastry cutter – no prob and in goes this…
Out comes these golden, crystallized brown sugar topped Peaches and Cream French Toast Muffins.
Which are just begging to be drowned in syrup…
