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. It makes a lovely dessert, breakfast, or comfort dish any time. If you happen to have a couple heels left over in a package of bread, this recipe is a perfect way to use them up.”
