This recipe is perfect when you only need to cook for one or two people and don’t mind if the toast isn’t super crisp. In fact, it won’t be crisp at all since we’re only microwaving it, but you will still have an amazingly moist, tasty french toast.

If you want extra creamy French toast, then just substitute the milk for cream. This change is slightly a bit unhealthier but is totally worth it if you have some cream around.

- Microwave for about 1 & ½ minutes.
- Serve & Enjoy
- I always love adding either some maple syrup or honey once I finish up with the cooking. Just drizzle this over the top of the bread, it will help make this dish shine! It’s important also to mention that cream or ice cream also goes well with this!
- Stale bread usually works a lot better in French toast as it will absorb the egg mixture easier.
- It’s important to remember with all microwave meals the cooking time may vary depending on how powerful your microwave is or what settings you have it on. I have mine on the highest setting and found 1 & ½ minutes was more than long enough.
If you’re trying to keep an eye on what you eat, then you might find the nutritional information for this mug recipe handy. You can see it right below, but I should mention that it is just an estimate so it may not be 100% accurate.
If the fry pan method and the mug recipe doesn’t appeal to you, then you may be interested in an easy overnight French toast casserole. This dish is a rich casserole that tastes amazing with the only downside is that it should be left to soak overnight, so it takes a little longer than this recipe.
