French Toast Muffins

New recipe time! I picked up a yummy loaf of cinnamon bread at the farmer’s market yesterday. I got up this morning and took a knife to it. I used part of it for the recipe that follows, and the rest was used to make perfect French toast. My kitchen was full of yum today. The recipe is pretty easy to follow. Mess rating: 4 bowls, spoons, a muffin pan and a few measuring utensils. The boys say: the topping is perfect but the muffin itself is not quite sweet enough. Final Verdict: Will make again (probably the next time I make French toast since it worked out so well today) and I will tweak the muffin a bit. I’m considering substituting vanilla extract for the maple and adding some sugar to the muffin mix. Also, as you can see from my pic, I didn't trim the crusts from the bread. Not on purpose, I just didn't realize I was supposed to until now.
