Cake in a Cup

Recipes... I have.
Photos... I have.
Files... I have.


Not so much. Wow. I don't know how long it will take for the dust settle around here since our relocation to the new state but I am frustrated in that I have so many wonderful recipes and photos to share but no time to do so! They are trapped on my camera or I have the photo uploaded into my files but no time to sit and pound out a post and recipe with it.

With no time in mind, I thought this would be a great quick recipe for today. A true "cup cake" - a cake in a cup! For when you want that special treat but you either don't have time to bake or it's just you and you have no need for a whole pan. Now, I'm off. Out the door yet again for another errand to the hardware store. Ahhh, moving. Fun, no?

Cake in a Cup

1 T butter, soft
2 T sugar
1/2 of a beaten egg (if you have to add the whole thing, go ahead)
2 T sour cream
3 drops of vanilla (pour into the cap and then into the cup)
1/4 c flour
1/8 t baking powder.

Mix into a coffee mug in the order listed, using a fork.

Now mix together;

1 T butter
2 T flour
1 T brown sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon

I like to mix these in a ziploc baggy and smash it together with my fingers or you can put it in a small bowl and mash with a fork. Pour on top of the cake batter in the mug and microwave regular power for about 3 minutes.

Let it cool for at least 5 minutes before you enjoy it or you'll burn your tongue!Print Friendly and PDF
