Onto the first recipe from the Domesticated Academic!
As if blueberry muffins weren’t magical enough by themselves, I had the bright idea of taking some muffins, breaking them up, and marrying them with a classic french toast custard for an ‘out of this world’ breakfast or brunch idea to share, enjoy, or eat by the forkful all by yourself. How’s that for a run-on sentence? Pretty good if I do say so myself! Honestly, this was the brain child of a full night’s sleep, a giant glass of iced coffee, and staring at some leftover muffins I had. This recipe could not be easier to put together, pop in the oven, and walk away for 30 minutes. I had some leftover POWER muffins that I didn’t want to see spoil so they increased their life span.
If you don’t have leftover muffins just ‘hanging around’, you can always take drastic measures and visit your local grocery store in the bakery section or better yet: the sale rack. I always notice those sad muffins at the grocery store, especially the ones that have been relegated to the “sale rack” and at my store, they are sitting out a large table and arranged on a large wooden rack just waiting for someone to see their bright orange tag that says “$1” or something close to that.
