Fast Friday Food: Single-Serving Coffee Cake

Let me start by confessing: I didn't love the way this turned out.

The crumbly topping was delightful, pre- and post-cooking. Not that I ate brown sugar butter or anything.

And this is some melty, gooey goodness. Honestly, I'll probably even try to tweak it and eat it again.

You should try this, too. Because, you know, it's Friday. Who wants to take the time to really bake on a Friday? This is the day for coming home from work exhausted, ordering pizza or Chinese, and cracking open a beer. Or soda. Or whatever you enjoy.

Get the whole recipe here:

You'll want to click through the link and read her directions. It wouldn't be fair of me to copy them onto my blog and claim them as my own. But I have listed the ingredients I used below in case anyone's interested. My only complaint with the original link was that there wasn't a concise recipe format at the end.

1 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp sugar
1 small egg
1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
1/8 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp baking powder

I didn't have sour cream, so I subbed with the yogurt. And I refuse to waste egg, so I picked the smallest one out of my carton and a half.

Crumble Topping
1 tbsp butter, softened
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

This makes a lot of topping. Unless you're using a large-circumference cup, you might want to mix it in a little before cooking.

Abbreviated Directions
1. Mix cake ingredients in a cup.
2. Mix topping ingredients separately. Crumble on top of cake.
3. Microwave 60 seconds or more until done.
