1 Minute Coffee Cake in a Mug

mug cake



  • 3 tbsp spelt or white flour (For gf: a commenter had success with 1 tbsp rice flour and 2 tbsp almond flour)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • pinch uncut stevia OR 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp water
  • 2 tsp oil or buttery spread - or applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • *For the streusel:* If you like a lot of streusel, feel free to double all ingredients below
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 tsp sucanat or brown sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp oil or melted margarine (once again, use applesauce if a fat-free version is desired)
  • tiny pinch salt
  • 2 pecan or walnut halves
  •
  • Preparation:
    1. I prefer the oil or buttery spread, but that’s simply because I’m not a fan of fat-free baked goods. If using an oven, preheat to 330 F. Combine batter dry ingredients and mix well. Add wet and mix until just mixed. In a tiny bowl, combine all streusel ingredients. Fill a greased muffin tin 1/2 way with the batter (or use a ramekin or mug, if using the microwave). Sprinkle on two-thirds of the streusel, then spoon the remaining batter on top. Finally, sprinkle on the rest of the streusel. Cook 12-13 minutes in the oven, or around 1 minute in the microwave. Microwave times will vary, depending on microwave wattage.
