Can I leave out the sugar? I'm Pre-dibetic. Or can I use sugarfree syrup as a substitute for the sugar ingredient?

Hi there! Yes, you can leave out the sugar or use a sugar-free syrup! Enjoy!

What a great way to enjoy a serving of bread pudding, without having to make a large pan of it.

This sounds easy and delicious! I will definitely have to give this a try.

This looks really yummy.I am sure my husband and I would enjoy this on a cozy morning in.

looks like an easy and fast breakfast.

I would like to try this soon and some of the other mug recipes as well.

Quick, easy, and satisfying - And, no, my mug was not ruined! I agree that it is more of a bread pudding than a french toast but for a meal that took less than 5 minutes to make I won't be complaining. It was warm and filing. The second time I made this I added no-sugar apricot jam and figs - It was great!

This managed to not only hurt my happiness, but it also struck my liver, gave me a hernia, and showed me the wrath a thousand sunset samurais - making me commit seppuku for my sins. In all seriousness though, this recipe was bland, ruined my mug (even after the cooking spray), and wasted all of my bread. I thought "hey, this can't be that bad given the ratings!" I have never been more wrong in my entire life. Would not make again, or recommend. IF YOU DO DECIDE TO MAKE IT, ADD MORE SUGAR. (Half a bottle of maple syrup is now sadly gone, even after an entire tablespoon of sugar.)

Wow, you have a problem, lady, and it is certainly not the recipe...

Have To Make That Tomorrow Morning !!!!!!

This is awesome! I agree, it's more bread pudding than french toast. But you know what? That's perfect, because I LOVE bread pudding, and now I don't have to make a whole pan. I used a Ramekin rather than a coffee mug (I just prefer using Ramekins for any "coffee mug" recipes), and it came out amazing. I loved that it is not very sweet. I also simply mixed all the liquid ingredients in the measuring cup I was using to measure the milk, no need to dirty up a separate bowl.

Just wanted to add something. My 6 year old had a horribly sore throat yesterday and refused to eat or drink anything. Well, he gobbled this up and then spent the rest of the day talking about how this bread pudding had made his throat feel better. He requested it again for dinner.

Much to my surprise, this was really good. It's perfect for someone who lives alone. I wouldn't normally fix breakfast for myself but I will make this frequently. I might add some finely chopped pecans next time.

This was dillish! I left out the sugar & drizzeled some syrup on top. I hate making breakfast or eating it. But I'll do this again.

Can't wait to try this : ) I have a recipe for baked french toast casserole that makes way to much for my family. Now I can make just for me : ) And I love those mugs so cute!

Awesome idea! Now, where do I go to get one of those "Ooh it's so good!" mugs? :-)

Thank you! They aren't in stores yet, but be on the lookout 'cause they will be soon! :)
