The whole purpose of anything you cook in a mug in the microwave is to make eating quick and easy. This recipe does that with a few easy-to-remember ingredients that cook up just fine in the microwave. The cinnamon is perfect for me, but if I were to fix this again, I would add a little more sugar. Like another reviewer, I stirred the bread into the liquid. Seems as though it would set better if all cubes were slightly moist. Most mug recipes are for eating quickly or on-the-go, but this morning I wanted to treat myself, so I turned my French toast cup out onto a pretty tea and toast set and slowly enjoyed my breakfast.

It was quick and tasty. My 15 mo old liked it too. I made just as stated, but I stirred the bread around instead of just pressing it into the egg mixture; wanted to make sure it all got coated. It took 90 seconds exactly in my microwave. I poured some real maple syrup on top, and it tasted somewhat like french toast. I'll make it again sometime.

I'm dieting so I used a spray or two of canola pan spray instead of the butter, skim milk, doubled the cinnamon and sugar, but used Splenda instead, chopped up half a banana into the mixture, and used 100% whole wheat bread, 50 calories a slice. An extra sprinkle of cinnamon and Splenda before microwaving made a sweet crunch on top. This gives you around 250 calories, so you could add juice or a smoothy as well. There's also lots of for room to experiment with other spices and mix in's. I liked the addition of fresh fruit, but nuts, chips, or dried fruits with other spice combos would work too. Just a cup and spoon to wash when you are done!
