If there's anything that spells luxury during brunch, it's French Toast. It's elegant, it's delicious, and best of all, it's a lot easier to make than you would assume. It only takes a few tweaks to make regular French Toast extra special for Mother's Day brunch.
Baked French Toast Muffins (Averie Cooks)
This Baked French Toast Muffins from Averie Cooks is a great thing to serve to impress Mom about your "baking" skills. Not only is this dish a nice and unique touch to the usual French toast, it also ups the flavor profile of the classic breakfast staple a few notches higher. Another thing that's great about this dish is that it's a healthy and low-calorie as long as you don't become too generous on that syrup drizzle.
"As a bonus, the recipe is accidentally healthy and on the lighter side. There’s no oil or butter, I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk which keeps the recipe dairy-free, there’s only 2 tablespoons of sugar in the batter, and I used sugar-free syrup sweetened with aspartame."

- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
