French toast muffins

What french toast is, I think, everybody know. Just to remind you, it is a slice of bread or brioche dipped in beaten egg, milk, cinnamon and grated nutmeg mixture, fried on a pan, served with maple syrup. Tasty breakfast :) When I found french toast muffins recipe on Sprinkle Bakes blog I had to bake them. Those muffins are spongy, fluffy, with spicy scent, not too sweet, a little bit sticky from maple syrup. I like them :)

Ingredients for 12-18 muffins:
  • 290g flour
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 250 ml buttermilk
  • 45g melted butter
  • maple syrup
  • icing sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 
Melt the butter.

In a big bowl sift the flour, sugar, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Whisk them together, set aside.

In separate jug whisk with fork eggs and butter milk. Pour this mixture into bowl with dry ingredients and the butter. With spoon combine all ingredients, do not over stir them. Spoon the batter into paper cases, 1/2 full. Bake for 10-15 min, check after 10 min. 
When baked, leave them for a while in baking tin. Later place them on wire rack. While they cooling down with toothpick make a holes on muffins, spoon over the maple syrup gently, let the syrup sink in the muffins, 2 tsp each. When finished dust with icing sugar. Enjoy !
