Lately, I have been seeing so many fun recipes that are made by microwaving in a mug. I found my self pinning several ideas from Pinterest and thought, “Hey, why not do a whole week of these thing on my blog”. So here you have it – a weeks worth of posts that are “In A Mug”. We are beginning “In a Mug” week with a coffee cake. This cake turns out gooey and topped with a yummy struesel. It is a fun way to begin a morning!
One thing that I have discovered about these mug recipes are the items do not turn out light and cakey, tend to be more on the dense and gooey side. You also do not want to over cook them because they will end up dry and chewy, so error on the side of under cooking. Since all microwaves are different, cooking time can very which does make it a little hard to figure out since you do not want to over cook. Start with the lowest time and cook in 5 second intervals. Also, you can always try the toothpick method to see if it looks done.
Now you can mix the cakes in the mugs, but the perfectionist in me won’t allow that. I mix it in a bowl, then add it to the mug, but either way works.Print
