Foodie Friday- MUG bread

Ok, So this recipe isn’t the most amazing tasting, and it definitely wont fill you up.. unless you’ve been eating 500 calories a day or something. But, it is pretty much the coolest thing I have seen in forever, and it takes about 5 minutes to make.. including cook and prep time.

First… Get a mug. Make sure its a nice Mug, with a pretty design, flowers.. oh and it has to be microwave safe. I used a uniformly circular mug and it seemed to work pretty well. I think next time I make it I will put it in a Tupperware container and make a mud bread that is a bigger (hopefully better) slice (or two) of bread.

Task one:



Task two:

Ingredient Gathering..

1 tsp Butter

1 Egg

1/4 cup flax seed meal

1/2 Tsp Baking Powder (and I mean POWDER..None of that Soda crap!)

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1-2 Packets of Stevia..or TT


Melt your butter in the bottom of the mug and egg the egg, mixing it with a fork until uniformly yellow-ish in color. Mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl and shuffle together like a deck of cards.. Or twirl it around with a spoon.. either way.

Add dry to wet (toss it in the cup) and stir!

Throw it into the Microwave for one minute and 15 seconds or up to 2 minutes(depending on heat of Microwave)

Pull out, flip over on plate and VWALA! You have mug bread!

This bread is slightly sweet with a nice cinnamon sort of reminds me of a honey wheat. Next time I make it I’m going to experiment with Banana bread, or adding spices to make it a bit more sandwich friendly!

Now, as we discussed this bread is not the end all in breads.. But if you have no bread in the house, or if you’re avoiding starches and processed sugars it’s a cool science experiment that you can give a whirl.. I bet your kids would love making it too! Good luck, and let me know how it goes!
