A bit ago a message popped up from Kalissa. “I looked on the blog and there is no recipe for Coffee Cake in a Cup”. Hmm. I think she’s right. I checked myself and there wasn’t. So I walked over to the cupboard door and snapped a picture of the recipe and sent it to her. (I love my phone for this!!)
Then a little while later my phone dinged again. Pictures started showing up….This….
Then came a message that said, “Now you can blog about it”. I smiled. She knows me so well. I know her so well. She wants to help me with a blog post idea but she also doesn’t want to have to keep track of the recipes. My kids all use the blog as their recipe book. They just go to the search bar on the blog and type in what they want to make. It’s a joy of the internet!!
I thought that was the end of it but then my phone dinged again with this….
Carver is trying to give the recipe a “thumbs up” but can’t quite manipulate his fingers. So cute!
So if you’re wondering about the recipe, this is a microwave recipe. It’s SUPER quick. I love it for nights when we want something sweet but I don’t want to take time to dirty the mixer. Being the recipe only uses a half of an egg, I typically make two at a time. This recipe makes only one. Something else to note. I typically make this in a cereal bowl. I’ve made other “in a cup” recipes and my cup has run over in the microwave. Bowls are just safer.
1 Tablespoon of softened butter
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1/2 beaten egg
2 Tablespoons sour cream
a few drops of vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
Then make the crumb topping.
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Add to the top.
Microwave about 80 seconds…maybe a touch longer or shorter depending on the wattage of your microwave.
Carver thinks it’s a “thumbs up” recipe and I do too!!
