Microwave Bread and Butter Pudding in a Mug- The perfect dessert to warm you up on a cold night. This pudding is the ultimate comfort food.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Did you know you can make a quick Microwave Bread & Butter Pudding? It is one of my favorite traditional Irish desserts, but this one has a twist…you can make it under 2 minutes in the microwave!

I love recipes that can be made with normal everyday ingredients. If you have a slice of bread, milk and an egg you can make this dessert. Also, if you have friends over then just multiply the recipe and make it for them.

Special thanks to The TODAY Show for making this recipe possible for you. Make sure you WATCH the recipe video and get the full written recipe below.

For me, Bread & Butter Pudding is the best kind of comfort food. It was often served at our table growing up in Ireland. However, I am no longer in Ireland, nor do I have my Mum making my desserts for me. So that’s why this recipe, and my other mug recipes, come in handy!

Make my Microwave Bread & Butter Pudding in a mug. It's a simple and delicious way to make one of my favorite traditional Irish desserts!

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoons sugar (or maple syrup)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 5 tablespoons cubed bread , buttered (around 1 slice)

Instructions

  • In your microwavable mug, mix together the milk, egg, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until combined
  • Cut your buttered bread into square bite-sized pieces
  • Add the bread and raisins to the mug and press them down so they are submerged within the liquid. I like to leave it on the counter for 10 minutes for the bread to soak up the custard
  • Microwave for roughly 1-1½ minutes. It does take a little longer than my other microwave cakes. I suggest checking it after 1 minute and go from there. The timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary.

Fabulous recipe!
What a divine site! I love it. Can’t wait to trawl the already listed recipes. I’m looking for a foolproof recipe to makeTALL, TALL, HIGH RISE scones, so fingers crossed.
Thank you for the inspiration and enthusiasm also Gemma
Many thanks from Cath

This is yummy. But mine doesn’t look anything like the other pictures here. Mine consists of chunks of bread sticking out of egg mixture. What am I doing wrong? The 2nd time I made it I added blueberries instead of raisins (which we don’t care for), This was a bad idea. They made it too moist. Next time I’ll use Trader Joe’s dried orange cranberries.
Thanks for this delicious fun recipe. We have it for breakfast. It’s even healthy. 🙂

I’m the only “sane” person in my household who likes Bread Pudding. So finding a single serve version was incredible to me. Besides, if I want more I just wash out the mug and start again.

I do mine in reverse. I mix the custard in a separate bowl, then pour it over the cubed and buttered bread in the cooking mug. I also lightly toast the bread and let it cool before buttering. It gives it a rich nutty flavor.

Thanks, Gemma!

This was delicious, I made it with day old banana bread and raisins! I could have doubled it, it was so enjoyable. New use for all day old bread now!

Made this with coconut oil instead of butter, Western Hazelnut bread (nuts and seeds), honey instead of sugar. It was very yummy. Would be even better if I’d had the raisins. I have blood sugar problems and needed something quick. I’ll be making this on a regular basis, thanks!

The thing about my mother’s bread pudding, all those many years ago, was the crusty,chewy top along with the custard pudding underneath. Then again, we weren’t above pulling on a piece of raised crust the next day in the refrigerator. My father, on the other hand, used to serve it to us for breakfast with milk and sugar.
