2-Minute French Toast in A Cup

Here is one food in a mug that might actually be yummier than the real thing. French Toast in a cup is fast, simple, and satisfies that craving for sweet, starchy deliciousness. And you can make it in two minutes!

2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe

Instructions and Ingredients:

  • Cube your bread.
  • Get your cup or cups ready. Butter the inside, either rub a pat of butter around, or you can melt the butter in a microwave and slosh it around. Up to you.
  • Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smush it down a bit but don’t compact it so much cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.
  • In a separate cup do the following:
    • crack and egg into it
    • add 3 tablespoons of milk
    • add cinnamon
    • if you like your French toast really sweet or vanilla-y, add a single drop of vanilla extract
  • Mix it all together with a fork.
  • Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Smush it and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.
  • Now put your cup in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking.
  • Add syrup. Obviously you have to have syrup. Or whipped cream. But really, syrup.

Finally, eat and repeat!
