Coffee Cake in a Mug
Author: Prudent Baby
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter (I used smart balance)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
  • ½ egg (I used the white only)
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream (I used low fat greek yogurt)
  • Vanilla - a few drops
  • ¼ cup flour (I used white whole wheat)
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter (again, I used Smart Balance)
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Tablepoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Soften the butter in the bottom of your microwaveable coffee mug (don't melt, just soften.)
  2. Add sugar and mix with a fork until the sugar and butter are nicely creamed together.
  3. Add your egg (whisk it for a few seconds if you are using part of the yolk.)
  4. Stir in sour cream (or yogurt) and vanilla until combined
  5. Add flour and baking powder and stir until combined.
  6. Mix the remaining flour,butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until combined and crumbly. Pour over the cake mixture.
  7. Microwave for 1 minute and then give it 10 second increments until it is done to your liking. (I probably went for 1 minute and 30 seconds total.) You definitely do not want to overcook it.
  8. ***This is best served while it's still warm in your mug***
