Recipe Comments & Reviews

That is all. :-)
These are amazing! I noticed that I needed more french toast topping. I made a second batch of it and it worked perfectly! The sugar was just enough imo. They taste just like french toast. And were good later that day too. I thought they may only be good hot and just out of the oven, but no, they were a good evening snack, too.
Made these for a birthday brunch-Fantastic! Served with regular butter but will try the maple butter next time. The only change I made was a bit more cinnamon in the sugar topping and next time, I would reduce the amount of sugar as I had a lot leftover and I had generously topped each one. Other than that, these are a great and impressive treat!
Absolutely delicious. I baked these as a get well soon treat for my boyfriend and he loved them. They might just be my new favorite muffin.
