Baked French Toast in a Muffin Tin served with a Berry Topping !

Here's another great idea for Breakfast or Brunch
Adapted from the Muffin Tin Chef

6 Slices of White Bread
3 Eggs , beaten
1/3 C Heavy Cream
1 TBS Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Cardamom ( if you don't have Cardamom, blend equal parts of Cinnamon & Nutmeg or Cinnamon & Ginger ) 1/8 tsp of each.
1/4 tsp Salt

Berry Topping
1 C Fresh or Frozen Berries, your choice
1/3 C the best Maple Syrup you can afford
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Citrus Zest , your choice ( I like Lime with Blueberries, Lemon or Orange with Raspberries , Strawberries, Lingonberries, Black Berries etc !
1 tsp Cornstarch

Cut the Bread into small cubes

In a small bowl:

Add Bread to the mixture
Let sit for at least 5 minutes

Divide the mixture between 12 cups in a  regular size Muffin Tin
Divide the remaining liquid from the mixture evenly among the cups

Bake at 350 degrees at least 20 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the egg mixture has set

In a saucepan, cook together:
Maple Syrup
Citrus Zest

Bring to a boil over Medium - Low heat
Simmer 5 minutes
Whisk in Cornstarch
Continue simmering until the mixture thickens , 1 minute

Peace in the Kitchen!
