Bread Pudding Muffins

Bread Pudding Muffins are little cups of heaven.  Loaded with cinnamon flavor, crisp apples and raisins.  Top off each muffin with a drizzle of maple syrup to make this muffin completely over the top on the delicious scale.  These little guys are gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian-friendly.

I know, I know bread pudding is meant to be served as dessert.  But who said I was a rule follower?  Certainly not me or anyone who knows me.

Not that I don’t like rules, I just tend to take a few of them as suggestions.  Like the suggestion, that bread pudding which tastes like french toast, which is meant for breakfast, should be served for dessert.

I am not saying you couldn’t serve these delectable morsels for dessert, I am all about diversity.

But for me, they were perfect in the morning served with a drizzle of maple syrup and gobbled up and washed down with a big ole’ cup of coffee or tea.

The apples and cinnamon throughout these muffins will make you a very happy camper.  So, I hope you will make this for your family, they will be drooling all over the breakfast counter.

  1. I’ve been saving bread ends all year for something and this made them delicious. I doubled the cinnamon. Considered dried apricots or hazelnuts too.
