You all know how I feel about bread,

{yes I’m certain that I could live on bread alone}

so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that I also love bread pudding.


it’s bread

it’s pudding

enough said



I don’t really think it should be thrown in the dessert category.

When you think about it

it’s eggs


maybe a bit of sugar



sounds like the makings of breakfast to me.


French Toast Anyone

So it got me to thinking…

we love our breakfast

we really love french toast

and muffins have been a great quick option for us lately


why  not french toast

aka bread pudding



and I happen to have an extra loaf of whole wheat and cinnamon brioche

{in my opinion brioche make the BEST french toast}

I was ready for a recipe fail

not really having much of a guide,

but I was SO very pleasantly surprised.


They are muffins

that taste just like

cinnamon french toast

and bread pudding

all rolled into one cute little package.

  • whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup

You could add a drizzle of syrup or powdered sugar,

but they were delicious au natural.
