As I mentioned above, by the time this cake is ready, it will be fluffy, moist, and loaded with flavor. The crumble topping completes the cake and is loaded with flavor from the brown sugar and cinnamon.

A coffee cake is typically a cake that you have with a coffee or tea. You will find that these cakes are often flavored with spices and sometimes have a crumb on top. This particular recipe has both the crumb and uses some cinnamon for extra flavor.

Perfect Snack for One

Like most mug cakes, this delicious cake is perfect for just one person. It’s the perfect snack to have when you just want to relax and enjoy a delicious sweet cake.

If you need to feed more people, then double or triple the recipe. However, you will need to use a larger mug or multiple mugs. You will find the topping will be enough for two mug coffee cakes, so keep this in mind when you change the recipe to feed more.

A regular-sized mug is large enough for one person. You can make smaller versions of this cake by splitting the cake batter across two smaller mugs, perfect if you want a small delicious snack.

What to Serve with this Coffee Cake

If you’re feeling a little peckish, then some cream or ice cream is the perfect addition to this lovely mug cake. You can also try other accompaniments such as custard, chopped nuts, toppings, and so much more.

Recipe Tips

  • If you have any leftover topping mixture, then make sure you place it in the fridge. It should keep for a few days before you need to discard it. You can easily use it again on more delicious mug coffee cakes.
  • As with any recipe that you cook in a mug, make sure the mug is large enough for the amount of mixture you’re putting in it. If it is too small, then it is likely to make a mess of your microwave.
  • If you find your cake is a little too moist when you pull it out of the microwave, then place it back in and cook for about thirty seconds.
  • You can skip making the topping for this cake, but you will lose one of the most important parts of this recipe. I recommend spending the extra time to make it.
