French Toast Pudding

French Toast Pudding

Dessert for breakfast or breakfast for dessert? You can have it both ways with this cross between French toast and bread pudding. Soft white bread is perfect for soaking up the cinnamon and vanilla-spiced custard, resulting in a gooey, decadent treat.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • ½ cup (110ml) evaporated milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • teaspoon cinnamon

  • Maple syrup to serve


  1. Add the evaporated milk, egg yolks, vanilla extract, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins (if using) into the Anyday dish and mix until well incorporated.

  4. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy with maple syrup!
