French Toast in a Mug Recipe

Making meals in a mug just maybe my newest obsession and this French Toast Mug is where it all began! My son, Joey, and I saw a video on the Food Network on how to make 3 quick and easy meals in a mug and we were hooked.

We could hardly wait to try to make our French Toast Mug. Let’s just say this recipe speaks to me – First of all, it’s one dish (mug) to clean up. Second, it’s done in 2 easy steps. When all is said and done, I get a breakfast my kids are begging for more of rather than leaving leftovers.

This is also great for making French Toast for 2…. use two mugs! However, sometimes you may just have a french toast craving, but no one else is on board with that (go figure).

In that case, this single-serving French Toast Mug is the perfect solution! If you love French Toast, then you will go CRAZY for this quick French Toast recipe in a mug!

We adjusted the Food Network’s recipe slightly and I totally recommend using challah bread if you can – the sweetness of the bread just enhances the deliciousness!!

Looking to serve French Toast for a crowd? We have an amazing French Toast Casserole recipe for the Instant Pot (our newest obsession)

These are both total keepers!

I am telling you, this will be your new favorite weekend recipe! The egg bread mixture, with the hint of cinnamon, all warmed up and ooey gooey, will have your kids begging for it! It is such an easy french toast recipe. Yet, without the hassle of making french toast!

Ingredients

  • 1 piece buttered bread (we used challah and I would totally recommend if you have it.)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips (we used mini chocolate chips which melted really nicely)
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  • Cinnamon sugar (optional)

Substitutions, Toppings or Add-Ins

Feel free to shake things up a little and get creative with your french toast in a mug! We love some of these great toppings or add-ins:

BREAD: Like I mentioned above, we used challah, also known as egg bread. If you cannot find challah, brioche is a great substitution.

Mix-Ins: The mini chocolate chips are our favorite, but the sky is the limit to add in! We love cinnamon chips, peanut butter, M&M’s, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, blueberries.

Toppings: Top it off with some whipped cream and sprinkles for a special occasion, or just to be fun!

How to make French Toast in a Mug

Like we said, this is the easiest french toast recipe ever! It literally takes less than five minutes.

  1. Mix together the egg, milk, syrup, cinnamon, and salt into a microwaveable mug.
  2. Cut off the crust of the bread and cube.
  3. Submerge the bread within the egg mixture of the mug.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Sprinkle the optional cinnamon sugar on top.
  6. Microwave for a total of 2 minutes stopping every 30 seconds (count to ten and start again – this is so it doesn’t explode in your microwave.)
  7. Let cool for about 1-2 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top (again, optional).
