5 Minute Coffee Cake in a Mug

Some mornings I feel the need to indulge just a bit.  This morning was one of those mornings.  After hauling the kids off to school, I came back to the house and made myself a little breakfast treat....Coffee Cake in a Mug.  

These one-serving recipes are important.  Important because then I won't be tempted to eat the entire cake if I baked one.

Restraint is something I'm constantly working on.  

I'm weak.

Okay, here's what you need...... {full 'print friendly' recipe below}

Mix the softened butter with the sugar in the mug until it looks like this.....

add in 1/2 of a beaten egg......

sour cream comes next with vanilla then flour and baking powder......

In a separate small bowl, make your crumb topping with butter, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg.....

Use a butter knife or your fingers to mix the crumb topping together.

Add it on top of your mug mixture and microwave for 1 minute and then at 5 or 10 second intervals until done.  Mine was done in 1 minute 15 seconds.
