These mini apple and cinnamon french toast casseroles are simple to make, but they'll need to sit overnight so plan ahead!
As these bake, they'll puff up like souffles (a good inch or two over the edge of the pan) but they'll settle back into themselves as they cool.
Serves: 9
Ingredients
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 1 cup Fat Free Evaporated Milk
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • dash Cardamom
  • dash Salt
  • 6 ounces Soft White Bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Apple, diced
  • ¼ cup loosely packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
Preparation
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and salt until light and frothy. Add the bread pieces and apple; toss several times to coast well. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Heat oven to 350*F. Butter 9 muffin cups. Give the bread mixture of good stir to incorporate any liquid that has settled, then divide between the prepared cups.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup until it resembles wet sand. Drizzle over the top of the muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown.
  4. To release, run a knife around the outside of each muffin cup. Gently pry the casseroles out with a spoon.
