Found this recipe on Budget101.com. It sounds like a quick and inexpensive dessert. From their site: Delicately sweet with a hint of cinnamon and raisins, this simple bread pudding in a mug is a perfect single serving and takes only 3 minutes to prepare.

I thought it was very good. I didn't have raisin bread home so I used apple fritter bread. 2 slices of bread is too much for our appetite so I cut it down to one since the apple fritter bread is sliced a little thicker. I wish I had thought to throw some raisins in. Since I only used one bread I cut the milk down to 1/3 cup. I thought a Tbls brown sugar would be too sweet, so I just sprinkled some on top. I used a stick to mix it which just fit in the mug. I had a layer of egg custard at the bottom (I dumped it out of the mug because it was taking too long to cool.
