In a medium bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Add about 1 cup of bread cubes to each muffin cup.
Carefully pour egg and milk mixture evenly over each muffin cup. You may need to press down on the bread cubes after you pour a little mixture and then pour more.
Cover the muffins with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and salt. Mix together with your hands, until you have a crumbly mixture.
Remove the muffins from the refrigerator and sprinkle the muffins evenly with the streusel topping mixture.
Bake 25 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
Let muffins cool for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and serve with butter and maple syrup, if desired.
