Pumpkin Bread Pudding Mug Cake
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1 piece of french bread (about 4 inches of a loaf)
  • 2 tbsp skim milk
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp of egg (about ½ of a large, whisked egg)
  • 1 heaping tbsp of pumpkin puree
  • A dash of ground cinnamon (to taste, but original recipe says 1/16 tsp)
  1. Cut your bread into half-inch cubes/chunks. Line/layer the bottom of a large coffee mug with the bread chunks. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, sugar, egg, pumpkin puree and cinnamon to create a custard.
  3. Pour custard into your mug, making sure every visible bread chunk is covered in it.
  4. Microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes, or until custard is fully cooked. (Start with 1 minute, check the cake, then microwave in 30 second intervals as necessary until your desired consistency is reached)
  5. Flip bread pudding cake out onto a plate, and eat immediately, with whipped cream/ice cream and caramel sauce.
Original recipe calls for 1 large slice of brioche.
