Blueberry Muffin in a Mug with Streusel Topping

Just like a freshly baked muffin, this muffin is light and fluffy in texture yet made so simply. Adding the streusel is a must because just like muffins it creates a lovely, sugary and crispy layer on top. It’s just delicious!

French Toast in A Mug

French toast is an incredibly easy breakfast. I love it because it uses ingredients you nearly always have on hand. And now you can make it even faster with less mess and wash up. 🙂 You can add whatever you like to your French Toast or just keep it plain Vanilla. I’ll show you how I make it BIG & BOLD with some lovely chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons white bread , buttered and cubed
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • In a microwave safe mug, mix together the egg, milk and syrup until combined
  • Add the bread to the mug and press it down so they are submerged within the liquid
  • Add the chocolate chips to the mug and give a little stir to incorporate them in the mixture. Let it stand for 5 minutes for the bread to soak up the custard.
  • Microwave for roughly 1-1½ minutes. I suggest checking it after 1 minute and go from there. The timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary.
  • Serve with whipped cream on top and enjoy warm

Recipe Notes

Brown sugar can replaced with white if needed
⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon

Hi Gemma, my friend and I have made a few of your recipes and have noticed that they have very high sugar amounts We have tried your breakfast blueberry muffin. It is very nice but it has 3.5 table spoons (52.5g) and a child’s daily sugar allowance is 24g I appreciate that this might also be for adults but their daily sugar allowance is 30g and this is just one thing in the day. We usually reduce the sugar and today we reduced the sugar to less than 2 tables spoons but that is still too much. We do like… Read more »

How do you measure 5 T of bread?? I’m baffled by this. Maybe using oz., grams or slices would be clearer.J

Oh my god Gemma the blueberry muffin is such an incredible recipe! I posted a picture and the end result looks almost exactly like yours! Very filling and very flavorful for such a simple batter. I couldn’t do the streusel because I had margarine instead of butter so it would make a paste instead of a crumb. But, I found at home some Honey Maid, a kind of graham crackers that you can use to make a crust. I crushed some in a bowl and putted it on top. The taste was amazing.

Hi Gemma,
Just wondering whether you can substitute all purpose flower with self raising or plain

Hello lovely Gemma!

I went ahead and tried the French toast and it was a bit mushy. Apparently I didn’t use enough bread? Two slices I thought would be enough but it was OK

The flavors were lovely (I paired it with buttercream icing because it was what I had, but it was so good and melty with the trench today that I would recommend it again! Thank you Gemma! ????

Made this today. Only had multigrain bread and subbed in frozen blueberries for the chocolate. It was a little mushy which I thought was because of the blueberries. Having reading comments it’s because I realize I didn’t use enough bread cubes. I thought 5T would be about one slice of bread… oops. 100% will try again with more bread. The flavour was spot on!

Hi Gemma, Thanks for the amazing recipes you share. I want to try the mug meals but would like to know if I can bake them in the convection oven instead of the microwave. I understand that the time taken will be more. If you have any inputs on baking mug meals in normal convection mode it will be very helpful.
Thanks.
