Coffee Cake in a mug

Coffee Cake in a mug-when you just want one serving, not a whole cake, and it’s so good!

Coffee Cake in a mug-when you just want one serving, not a whole cake, and it's so good!

Mug Cake Week!

I’ve saved the best for last.

This one is a little bit of work but it’s so worth it!

I love coffee cake fresh out of the oven, still warm, with a little glaze drizzled over top.

Now I can have it any time I want! And in less than 10 minutes, probably 5 if I don’t get distracted.

This is a true mug cake, one large coffee mug all to yourself or you could be nice and make it in two small mugs and share one with a friend, or your husband.

Or you could eat them both yourself, I won’t tell.

Coffee Cake in a mug

Coffee Cake in a mug

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Crumb topping
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cold
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped pecans
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons milk

Instructions

  1. You can mix the batter directly in the mug or you can make it up in a separate dish.
  2. Place softened butter in dish then add sugar. mix until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add in your egg, and beat again.
  4. Now for your sour cream and vanilla. Stir again. You're almost there.
  5. Add in flour and baking powder and blend.
  6. Now combine your crumb topping ingredients in a separate bowl.
  7. Using a fork, blend the ingredients till crumbly.
  8. Now just put it all together, if you mixed in the mug just add the crumb topping on top.
  9. I like to layer mine. Batter, some crumbly, more batter, then the rest of the crumbs.
  10. Place in the microwave and cook on high for 1 minute. If your making 2 mugs from this recipe, it's probably done. If you made one large mug you probably need to bake for another 20-30 seconds.
  11. Combine your powdered sugar and milk, stirring until creamy and smooth. Now drizzle over your warm coffee cake.

Get your fork out and enjoy!

I can see myself making these the night before for the kids, putting them in the fridge and then letting them pull them out before school in the mornings. Oh yes, super cool mom points!

  25. I’m eating this right now and it’s AMAZING!

  26. Looks & Sounds amazing!!! Pinning!

  27. I’ve made this mug cake before and it’s Amazing! Those of you who can’t eat eggs or are weird about microwaving eggs, you can leave them out. The cake wont rise as much, but will still be super tasty. You can also use yogurt instead of sour cream if you don’t have it on hand.

    Seriously, you gotta try this. So super yum. I have the recipe stuck to my fridge, you know, for emergencies. ;)

  28. CJ McNair says:

    This is really good but it took longer than the time specified for two. Almost 3 1/2 minutes but I think time will vary with the type of mug used. And one shared between us was more than enough. We now have another fabulous dessert for tomorrow night!! Ill be using this one again!

  29. Chocolate Lover ^.^ says:

    Oh my word!! That looks amazing!! :)
    Can’t wait to try it!!
    I love mug cakes because they don’t take much time, not as many dishes, and can be enough to satisfy sweet cravings! :)

  30. This really does look amazing and I’m going to try it (probably tonight…. which will answer my question). But I was wondering… do you have to “grease” or butter the mug before putting the ingredients in?

    Thanks so much for sharing these wonderful recipes!
