French Toast in a Cup

Day 2 of my 7-Day Microwave Mug Challenge! Check out the original recipe here.

I found it a little hard to follow with the directions split up with step-by-step pictures. I love including pictures, but I also like to have all the important parts in one place so I can review the whole process before beginning. I am a nerd.


  • 2 pieces of bread
  • butter, 1/2 tablespoon
  • 1 egg
  • milk, 3 tablespoons
  • cinnamon, sprinkle
  • vanilla, to taste
  • syrup, if desired

1. Lightly toast the bread and cube into 1-inch pieces. I used two slices of bread, because who just eats one piece of French Toast?

2. Microwave the butter in the mug until melted; slosh around until the inside is coated. Fill the mug with the bread cubes.

3. In a small bowl, combine egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour into mug over the bread pieces. Stir around until they are evenly coated. Microwave for 1 minutes and 20 seconds.

Once again, these people are using Lilliputian-sized coffee mugs.

Staged photo, anyone?

I’m sorry, but that photo is just too pretty. Nothing comes out of the microwave looking that pretty. Mine certainly didn’t!

Pretty easy recipe with minimal mess — though I would say it turns out more like a bread pudding. I still prefer some crispy on the outside, mushy on the inside, skillet French Toast!
