Or for one, just assemble the other half in another mug, cover and stick in the fridge for later. =]
My mother has something we like to refer to as "THE BOX." The box is a huge box full of 'found' recipes she's haphazardly thrown into it over the years, but has probably only made a fraction due to the inability to find any of the recipes when you need them. I have the equivalent of "THE BOX" on my laptop. =] So I was going through all my files last night and came across this gem. It's really tasty and easy. And if this is what all the recipes I've collected are like... I need to organize.=]

Ingredients

CAKE BATTER

2 Tbsp
butter, softened (not melted)
4 Tbsp
sugar
1
egg
4 Tbsp
sour cream
1/8 tsp
vanilla (or just a few drops, don't add too much!)
1/2 c
flour
1/4 tsp
baking powder

CRUMB TOPPING

2 Tbsp
butter softened
4 Tbsp
flour
2 Tbsp
brown sugar
1 tsp
cinnamon (i added 1 1/2 tsp. but i love cinnamon)

Step-By-Step

1In small bowl, cream softened butter and sugar with a spoon or fork(you definitely don't need a mixer for this recipe!). Add egg, sour cream and vanilla and mix until smooth.

2Add flour and baking powder, stir until smooth. Split the batter between two coffee mugs. Set aside.

3In a separate small bowl or ramekin, mix butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon until evenly blended. Split in half and place on top of the batter in each mug.

4Cook one mug at a time in the microwave. I would start out with one minute and continue by 10 to 15 second increments until it's your desired doneness. (I usually do about one minute and twenty seconds)

5Be careful because the mug and the cake will be really hot. Enjoy! =]
