A homemade, single serving coffee cake in a mug!
This coffee mug cake comes complete with crumbly streusel topping in each little bite.

By now, I think all of my girl friends–and some of the guys too–are on Pinterest. We were talking about the site a few days ago, and one of my friends mentioned a “coffee cake in a mug” pin that taunted her every time she logged into her account.
Finally she wrote down the recipe with the intent of trying it at home, but then was horrified to learn one mug contained 720 calories and an entire day’s worth of saturated fat!
How can they fit so much fat into a single mug?!
So I came up with a healthier version for her: You could quadruple the following recipe and it would still be healthier than eating one of the frankenmuffins from Pinterest.

I think my friend approves of this recipe. She’s made it four times already and says I’m her new favorite person in the world.
Apparently my face is now pinned to her “Dream Wedding” Pinterest board, under the title “dream wedding caterer.”
One Minute Coffee Mug Cake
1 Minute Coffee Cake In A Mug
- 3 tbsp spelt, white, oat, or almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/16 tsp salt
- pinch uncut stevia OR 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp + 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 (or keto sweetener)
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp oil or buttery spread (or applesauce)
- tiny pinch salt
- 2 pecan or walnut halves
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.
Obviously, coffee cake is meant to be consumed with coffee…
