Recipe Ingredients for Cup of Coffee Cake

1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 egg
2 tablespoons sour cream
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Cup of Coffee Cake

  1. Well, first you?ll need a cup. If you want it to puff up over the top of the cup, use a small one. Or if you want to dig into the cup, use a big one. It matters not.

  2. Add a tablespoon of butter.

  3. Soften it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Don?t melt, just soften.

  4. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar until it?s fluffy and creamy, maybe 30 seconds.

  5. Now you can add some egg. you don?t have to, but without egg it?s more crumbly and less cake-y. You can do a whole egg, but I like to break the egg into a ramekin and stir it up, then split it between two cups of coffee cake, or just use half for one coffee cake. But really, play it by ear. Try it out and see what tastes best to you.

  6. Then stir in 2 tablespoons of sour cream and a few drops of vanilla. We?re talking droplets here, don?t add too much.

  7. Stir in 1/4 cup of flour and 1/8 teaspoon baking powder.

  8. If you want some crumb topping (you know you do), in a separate ramekin or bowl add 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

  9. Smoosh it together with your fingers for a few.

  10. Now back to your cup. Your ingredients are all mixed up, so?

  11. Add the crumb topping mixture to the cup?

  12. Then microwave it. Start with 1 minute, then do 10 seconds more until it?s done to your liking. For my microwave, a minute 20 seconds does it perfectly.

  13. It will be REALLY HOT when you take it out of the microwave.

  14. Let it cool down for a few seconds, then dig in.

  15. This is basically a start for a quick microwave coffee cake in a cup recipe, you can adjust to your own tastes and liking, since this is a serving for one after all. I like it just like this, but my husband doesn?t mind it without the egg. You may want more of this or less of that to suit your tastes. I look forward to hearing any adjustments you make and finding out if cake in a cup seems worth it to you.
