Have you caught on to the newest craze? Making individual serving meals in a mug are the biggest thing. Just ask my kids! After watching them make recipe after recipe in the microwave, I realized they were on to something. I decided to get into the game and I came up with my own one mug wonder. I was excited when I perfected my recipe for a Breakfast Burrito, and even more happy when my Cherry Cream Cheese Filled Breakfast Bread Pudding became my kids favorite. These recipes have made my kitchen a happier place at breakfast time. They are quick, healthy break FAST ideas for those busy mornings. They have empowered my kids, and helped me become the cool mom on the block!
Cherry Cream Cheese Filled Breakfast Bread Pudding Recipe
- 1 Tablespoon Challenge Butter, plus extra for mug
- 1 slice bread
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons milk or half and half
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoons vanilla
- ¼ teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons Challenge Cream Cheese
- 2 Tablespoons cherry pie filling
- pancake syrup or powdered sugar, if desired
Butter the inside of mug to prevent sticking. Next spread butter on the slice of bread. Tear bread into 1 inch pieces.
In a small bowl, combine egg, milk, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
Place half of bread pieces inside of prepared mug. Add cream cheese and pie filling, followed by the remaining bread pieces. Pour egg mixture over bread and place mug into microwave for 2 minutes. Carefully remove and let cool. Run a knife around edges of bread pudding, to loosen. Pudding can be eaten straight out of the mug, or you can flip mug upside down on serving plate to remove pudding.
Serve with powdered sugar or syrup if desired.
