Coffee Cake in a Mug
For those cold winter nights when you need a treat….you can make a delicious coffee cake for one without having to go out! (You’ll probably end up making more than one, so don’t put away those ingredients too soon 😉 ) So dig in your cabinets and fridge to pull out your ingredients, get your coffee brewing, and mix together this great dessert for an enjoyable dessert (or snack).
What you will need:
(For the cake):
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of water
- 2 teaspoons of melted margarine (one teaspoon is a third of a tablespoon which is how a sick of margarine is measured on the paper)
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
(For the streusel):
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 1/2 teaspoons of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of melted margarine
- pinch of salt
How it’s done:
- Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt) together in a mug.
- Add the wet ingredients (water, melted margarine, and vanilla) and mix them into the dry ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, combine the streusel ingredients (cinnamon, brown sugar, margarine, and salt). Note: Don’t mix these ingredients yet.
- Stick the streusel bowl into the microwave for 15 seconds to melt the margarin. Now the ingredients can be stirred together in the bowl.
- Pour the mixed streusel ingredients onto the cake ingredients in your mug and swirl it around on top with a spoon.
- Put the mug into the microwave for one minute.
- Sprinkle sugar on top of the final cake before enjoying.
After the great pumpkin bread failure a few weeks ago, I was a little hesitant to attempt another bread in a mug recipe. But I was encouraged as the ingredients smelled amazing as I was putting this cake together. The sweet smell was not deceiving. This has been the best recipe I’ve tried so far for this blog! The entire day after making it, I couldn’t stop thinking about wanting to make more. The recipe was very easy, and all the ingredients were things I already had in my cabinet without having to make any special trip to the grocery store. The cake was moist and the streusel sweet. The only thing I might change about it is to add more streusel. But this cake truly was delicious, especially for having come from a microwave! It’s a definite repeat and gets a full thumbs up from me.
