How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients.
Set oven to 350°F
Combine the eggs, vanilla, milk and half of the sugar (3 Tbsp) in a medium sized mixing bowl.
Whisk the custard until smooth.
Combine the cinnamon and remaining sugar.
Cut the croissants in half, then into strips and then into about 1 inch cubes.
Put the cubed croissants in a large mixing bowl and pour the custard over the top. Stir and let the custard soak into the croissants for a few minutes.
Spray with oil or butter a standard muffin tin and evenly divide the mixture between all 12 cups. Try to get an even amount of croissant cubes and custard liquid in each cup.
Distribute the cinnamon sugar sprinkling it on the tops of each muffin.
Bake the french toast cups for about 15- 20 minutes or until puffed up in the center and golden brown. Let cool at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
Enjoy with a dusting of powdered sugar, some syrup or fresh berries!
