Triple Berry French Toast Cups (for 2) are filled with yummy raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cream cheese and maple syrup, then baked.

Today I want to share this delicious recipe for Triple Berry French Toast Cups. They are easy to prepare, and taste wonderful! I found the original recipe years ago in one of my old “Taste of Home” magazines (from 2006) and slightly adapted it for our taste preferences. You will need to have a couple of 8 ounce, oven-safe ramekins to make these single serving breakfast treats, but they are readily available in lots of retail stores or online.

This simple recipe makes two servings, and I am confident you will enjoy it! You will need to plan a little bit ahead, because an important step is to refrigerate the French toast cups for at least an hour BEFORE baking, to give the egg filling time to soak into the bread cubes. Other than that, they are truly simple to make, and taste great, especially if you serve them topped with sifted powdered sugar and berry-flavored pancake syrup. Here’s how to make triple berry French toast cups:

Prepare The Triple Berry French Toast Cups

Lightly grease (or spray) two 8 ounce ramekins on the bottom and sides. Evenly divide HALF of the stale, day old bread cubes (can use French bread or sourdough) between the two dishes (reserve the other half of the bread cubes for later). The reason you use day old or stale bread cubes is because they are firmer than fresh bread cubes, and will hold up better after liquid is added. This helps the bread NOT to turn mushy.

Add the raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, evenly diving the fruit between both ramekins. I used a total of 1/2 cup berries (divided) from a bag of triple berry blend, but this dish will still turn out perfectly if you don’t have access to all three fruits.  NOTE: We love the flavor combination of using all three berries, but if you only have raspberries? Use 1/2 cup total. Only have blueberries? Only use 1/2 cup total.  You get the picture. However you want to make these (whatever combination), just use a total amount of 1/2 cup of berries.

Top the berries with softened cream cheese cubes, and then divide the remaining bread cubes on top of the cream cheese. Set aside while you make the easy egg filling.

Stale bread cubes are placed into greased ramekins.A layer of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries is topped with cubes of cream cheese. The last layer to be added is the remaining day old bread cubes.

Soak With Egg Mixture And Refrigerate

Now it’s time to make the egg “filling. Place eggs, milk and maple syrup in a medium bowl, and whisk with a fork or wire whisk until combined. Pour the egg mixture into the ramekins, being sure to evenly divide the liquid between both dishes. Use the back of a spoon to gently press the bread cubes down as much as possible into the egg mixture. You need to do this, so the bread cubes can absorb the egg filling as much as possible before baking.

Now comes the hard part… waiting! Cover with plastic wrap, and put the ramekins into a refrigerator for at least 1 hour (or more). The bread cubes need time to absorb as much of that egg mixture as possible. Sometimes I make these at night before going to bed, then they’re ready to go first thing in the morning. Occasionally I unwrap them, and push the bread cubes down again into the liquid. They won’t ever be fully covered… just get them into the liquid as much as possible for best results!

TIP: Remove the triple berry French toast cups from the refrigerator 25-30 minutes before baking (to take the chill off). Preheat your oven to 350°F during this time.

Bake The Triple Berry French Toast Cups

Bake the triple berry French toast cups in a preheated 350°F. oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes. When done, they should be golden brown on top, and the egg filling will be “set” in the middle. Let them cool on a wire rack for 3-4 minutes. 

After they have cooled for 3-4 minutes, and you’re ready to serve, carefully run a butter knife around the edges of the ramekin to loosen the edges. Using a large spoon, carefully remove the French toast cups in one piece out of the dish, and transfer to individual serving plates.

Time To Eat!

The French toast cups are not overly sweet, as is, so our absolute FAVORITE way to serve them is to sift a little bit of powdered sugar on top, and then drizzle it all with some berry-flavored pancake syrup! YUMMO! I like to use my homemade blackberry pancake syrup. It compliments this dish well, with even more berry flavor and sweetness.

My husband and I love this breakfast (even though it’s an “occasional” treat!), and hope you (and those you love) will enjoy it, as well. It’s REALLY delicious, and looks good on the plate, too!
