This French toast in a mug recipe is perfect for anyone craving that amazing eggy bread but don’t feel like getting the frypan out and just want something fast.

French Toast in a Mug

This mug recipe is a fantastic way to get an excellent tasting breakfast or dessert in just a matter of minutes. The best thing is that it only takes a couple of dishes, so it’s great if you’re feeling a little lazy.

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.

Cooking Tips

  • 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 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.
