Feeling like cake with your coffee? Or cake in your coffee cup? This super-yum Coffee Cake has actually no coffee in it, but is the best accompaniment to a warm cuppa on a cold night!

As always, with most cakes in mugs, you are better off using a large mug, combining the ingredients in another bowl or jug and pouring it into the mug. I keep batches of the dry ingredients pre-mixed in sandwich bags and add the wet ingredients when its time to bake.


  1. Combine butter, sugar, egg, sour cream and vanilla in a bowl.

  2. Add flour and baking powder and mix to make a smooth batter.

  3. Spoon into large mug.

  4. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the top of the batter

  5. Microwave for between 1 minute 30 seconds and 3 minutes, cooking time will depend on how cooked you like your mug cakes.

  6. Coffee Cake In a Mug is not suitable for freezing and is best made fresh just before eating.
