I love French toast, but it’s something I rarely make at home. I’m usually just too lazy. So I solved this problem with this ridiculously easy French toast in a mug. It’s easy to assemble and out pops this tower of French toast.

Mr. K loved this too. This is a perfect treat for lazy weekend mornings.

Print Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 slice bread the size usually used for toast (you can also use brioche bread for something fancier), cut into small cubes about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch
  • 1/2 of a large egg whisked
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Directions:

  1. Place pieces of toast into a large microwave safe mug. First, circle the inside of the cup with cubes of toast, then fill the middle. Continue to stack up until you run out, so that it forms a tower of toast inside the mug.

  2. In a separate cup, mix the egg, milk, cinnamon and sugar with a small whisk. Pour over toast, making sure that the batter touches all of the toast. Cook for about 1 minute in microwave or until egg custard mixture is completely cooked. You can eat in the mug or you can easily remove the tower of French toast from the mug onto a plate. Serve with syrup.

  3. Note: this recipe is for one serving, but you can easily double to make two cups and then you don’t need to halve the egg. Just make sure to cook each mug separately.
