French Toast Breakfast Muffins Recipe

*recipe can be doubled, as shown in photographs


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (preferably room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350.

Sift together all dry ingredients into a medium-large bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir just until combined. It’s okay if the batter is still a bit lumpy. Do NOT over-mix. Over-mixing will toughen the overall texture of the finished muffins.

Prepare your muffin tins by spraying with cooking spray and scoop batter in. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until they start to turn a bit golden at the edges.

For the topping, mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Melt butter and set aside in another small bowl. Dip warm muffins into the melted butter. You can just do the tops, but it’s even yummier to dip the whole muffin. Then dip/roll into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

I used my ice cream scoop to portion out the batter into my muffin tins. The batter is very sticky and thick, but makes for a very rich muffin.

The muffins are lightly crispy and a little crunchy on the outside, and rich and buttery on the inside. Serve as is, or add a little syrup and enjoy!

  26. April Farley says:

    I am in love with this recipe! I wonder if they would be even lighter if you separated &peaked your egg whites them folded them in at the end. What if you cooked bacon up and added some bacon into the muffin. The possibilities are endless. THANK YOU for this awesome recipe! My family will be so happy when I serve these. With a crew like we have it takes a good deal of time to cook off french toast for all of them. Then you have to decide weather to hold the ones you have made in the oven to keep them warm or if you will feed the masses in waves. Then someone is always feeling left out. Sometimes I cut the french toast into strips and feed 2 strips or 1/2 a slice at a time. These muffins will make it SO much easier! 2 muggin tins in and out at the same time we all eat at the same time done and done! Thank you thank you!
