French Toast Pull Apart Muffins

French Toast Pull Apart Muffins

These French toast muffins are so cute and make a fun breakfast or brunch.

They are easier to cook than regular French toast since you let the oven do the cooking for you and you can pull them apart, piece by piece.

I’ve got brunch on my mind. After finishing my taxes, I just want it to be the weekend. But even on the weekends, we haven’t had time to have a leisurely brunch lately. Anyone else feel unusually busy this year? Since January, we’ve been nothing but busy busy busy. I keep waiting for a lull, but I don’t see one coming. Maybe June?

These French toast muffins are so cute and make a fun breakfast or brunch.


  • 1 small challah loaf
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • maple syrup for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with muffin/cupcake liners.
  • Slice challah bread into small cubes. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together heavy cream, milk, eggs, and honey. Working in batches, drop in about 1/3 of the bread cubes into the batter, moving them around so that they are fully coated in the batter. Carefully remove the bread cubes and add them to your muffin pan, stacking them to form a muffin shape. Repeat with remaining bread. If you have any leftover batter, you can pour onto muffins before baking.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until toast turns golden and edges turn a light brown. Pour syrup over before serving.

  1. Can I just use plain white bread?

    • Yes, but try to choose something sturdy so it doesn’t fall apart when it soaks in the batter. I prefer challah bread for French toast, but yes, you can use other types of bread

  2. Wow a great recipe! So simple and I like how you don’t have to use the stove, just pop it in the oven. Can’t wait to make this. 🙂

    • It’s such an easier way to make french toast! You can make regular French toast this way too, but I wanted something a little cuter.

  3. Can’t wait to try this!
