Two-Minute Bread Pudding in a Mug with Browned Butter Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients for Bread Pudding:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-2 slices French bread, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch or sprinkle of nutmeg

Ingredients for Browned Butter Vanilla Sauce (Enough for 2 to 4 Mugs):

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk

Instructions for Bread Pudding (make in your MogoBox 15 oz. Classic White Mug):

  • If using sauce, make that first and set aside.
  • Butter your mug of choice. I usually put a pat of butter in the bottom of the mug and microwave for 15 seconds until soft and then coat the butter with a knife around the bottom and edges of the mug.
  • Cube the bread and place in the mug. You will want it overflowing.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour slowly over the cubed bread in the mug, pushing the bread down slightly with a fork into the egg mixture to coat. Sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg.
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute and check. You will want a toothpick to come out clean. This will take anywhere from 1 to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave. Mine is perfect at 1 minute, 30 seconds. My mom’s microwave is perfect at about 1 minute, 20 seconds.

Instructions for Browned Butter Vanilla Sauce:

  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter until it turns into a toasty brown color.
  • Then add brown sugar and milk.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 5-8 minutes or until mixture thickens and comes to a full boil.
  • Stir in vanilla carefully.
  • You can make it up the night before and store in the fridge until ready for it.

Cook Time: Between 1 to 2 minutes

Yields: 2 – 4 Mug with Attitude servings
