Mug Coffee Cake

Sometimes, you just like to have a treat or dessert that nobody else does. And when you do, you don't want to make an entire pie or cake and be responsible for eating all of it, or most of it going to waste. Unless, of course, you are Bruce Bogtrotter, from Matilda:

So, single serving desserts are magical, and that's where this comes in. I also found one for a chocolate lava cake, which I will post soon. Here is the original recipe.

Serves: 1
Prep time: 8 minutes
Cook time: 1 minute

Ingredients (cake batter):
-1 pinch of salt
-1/4 cup flour
-1 tbsp butter
-2 tbsp applesauce
-1/8 tsp baking powder
-2 tbsp sugar
-a few drops of vanilla extract

Ingredients (streusel topping)
-1 tbsp butter
-2 tbsp flour
-1 tbsp brown sugar
-1/4 tsp cinnamon

1. In a coffee mug, soften butter in the microwave for 8 seconds. Do not melt it, just soften it.

2. Mix the sugar in until well combined.

3. Mix in the salt, flour, applesauce, baking powder, and vanilla until just combined.

4. Flatten mixture out in the mug with the back of a spoon.

5. In a separate bowl, soften the butter for 8 seconds in the microwave. Mix in the flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar by pinching them together with your fingers.

6. Sprinkle the streusel mixture on top of the cake batter in the mug.

7. Microwave for 1 minute. Make sure not to overcook it! The topping should be just settled on the top. After 1 minute of cooking, cook in 10 second intervals until done.
