Blueberry French Toast Cups are delicious, single serving breakfast treats that are easy to make, and can be cooked in an air fryer OR in an oven.
Generously butter bottom/sides of 2 oven-safe ramekins. Cut 1-2 day-old french bread into bite-sized pieces, leaving crusts ON. Divide bread cubes between 2 ramekins; then add blueberries.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, vanilla, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon zest until mixed well. Pour egg mixture evenly into ramekins, dividing between both. Mixture should come to almost the top of dish. Use a spoon/fork to lightly press the bread cubes down into egg mixture to cover as much of the bread cubes as possible.
Cover ramekins with plastic wrap. Chill them in refrigerator overnight (at least 6 hours). Remove from fridge for 10-15 minutes before you cooking, to take some of the chill off. Remove plastic wrap. Press the bread cubes back down into any remaining liquid.
To Cook In An Air Fryer: Preheat air fryer to 350° F. Place both of the ramekins carefully into air fryer basket, being careful not to spill. Cook for 13 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 250°A, and cook for 3 more minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out free of "batter". The french toast cups should be nice and golden brown on top.
IMPORTANT: Since air fryer AND oven temps can vary, be sure to check on your blueberry french toast cups occasionally, to ensure they do not undercook OR overcook.
To Cook In An Oven: Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake both of the ramekins for approximately 30 minutes. or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out free of "batter". The french toast cups should be nice and golden brown on top.
Transfer ramekins to a wire rack to cool for 10-12 minutes. Sift powdered sugar over the top of each ramekin before serving. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
NOTE: Caloric calculation does not include powdered sugar or maple syrup, which are optional and used for serving.
