2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe (PHOTO)

french toast in a cup

Who’s got the munchies? Ha! Seeing as our Cup of Coffee Cake (in Under 5 Minutes) was our most popular post of 2011, I thought y’all might enjoy my other favorite last-minute snack, which is even quicker and easier and more fattening (and therefore more delicious/more embarrassing to admit I eat on a regular basis). 

It’s French toast in a cup, made in your microwave and topped off with a generous ssquirt of ssyrup (which is making my ssssss key kind of sssticky right now).

So please, grab a slice of bread and allow me to blow your mind ...

Bread (1 piece per cup)

Pat of butter

1 egg

3 Tbsp milk

Pinch of cinnamon

1 drop vanilla extract (optional)

Maple syrup


1. Cube the bread.

2. Get your cup or cups ready. Butter the inside -- either rub a pat of butter around or melt the butter in the microwave and slosh it around. Up to you.

3. Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. I used two small cups this time because my pesky husband wanted in on the action, but one big cup totally works. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smoosh it down a bit but don’t compact it so much because you need the liquid to be able to work its way in.
