It is rare that I have a lazy Saturday morning. Well this morning it is cold and just nasty outside. Most mornings like this I like to bake and warm up the house but this morning I am just not feeling it… No I promise I am not sick. Just enjoying my morning coffee and reading the paper. But also want something good and warm that would make me feel just a little bit more cozy. Yet again I am not really feeling the creative backing thing. Plus I have a hair appointment to get dressed for in a little bit. So as I was going through my recipes, I found one I use to do many many moons ago that was simple and comforting I wanted to share.
Cinnamon Cake/Bread in a Coffee Cup/Mug
First find a coffee cup/mug you like does not have to be very big it can be a regular size coffee cup. Just make sure it is microwave safe! Spray it with your favorite cooking spray. Now I like the make the icing first. You don’t really need icing on this but I have a little sweet tooth!
- 2/3 cup of powered sugar
- 1 1/2 tbs milk
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Mix icing ingredients above in small bowl and set aside. (If it is to thick you can add just a tiny bit of milk at a time to get it to the consistency to drizzle)
Now in the Coffee cup/mug mix the following:
- 2 tbs all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon **(see substitutions below)
- pinch or dash of salt (not much really just a pinch)
- 1 1/2 tbs of flavored syrup – I like maple or cinnamon – You can even use Pancake Syrup)
- 1 egg
- 2 tbs of whole milk – You can use reduced fat milk or Almond
- 1 tbs of melted butter – Sorry I always use real butter!
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
(Make sure you mix it as well as you can with a fork). Place in Microwave for 2 minutes. Drizzle with icing. Enjoy!!!
Note: Always be careful when removing items from microwave they may be hot.
** Substitutions for Cinnamon – I have used Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix, Apple Pie Spice Mix. It is up to you and your taste. Be creative!
