First you need bread. You’ll need one or two pieces of bread per cup. I like to make 2 cups at once so I can split an egg, but you can totally make one big cup with more bread and a whole egg. Work with what you’ve got.
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 mircowave and slosh it around. Up to you.
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 cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.
Now in a separate cup or ramekin do the following:
-crack and egg into it
-add 3 tablespoons of milk
-if you like your french toast really sweet or vanilla-y, add a single drop of vanilla extract (I don’t do this, but it might make you love it even more)
Mix it all together with a fork.
Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Smoosh it a little, and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.
Now stick your cup in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking (no runny eggs). In my microwave that’s 1 minute, 20 seconds.
