Coffee Cake in Mug

It was one of those mornings that I was in the mood for coffee cake, but I really did not want to make a full pan of coffee cake. With one three of us in the house, I thought it would not all get eaten in a timely manner or I would just eat more than I wanted to.

So it was off to find a recipe on the internet for a coffee cake for one recipe. I was willing to bake it.
So I found a recipe that could be made in the microwave and included all the ingredients I had on hand...or so I thought I had.

I could not find the vanilla I needed. Search everywhere in the kitchen for it, could not find it. I found maple flavoring and used it instead. Good choice, I may continue to use maple favoring for this recipe in the future.

The recipe link is in with the picture and can also be found here.
There is no egg in the recipe, I might try substituting egg for some or all of the milk in the future.

I had bought rye flour to make rye noodles. So on the back of the bag is a recipe for crackers. So I had to try it out. I also found the recipe online and you can find it here.

Turned out really tasty and I hope not to eat is all in one sitting.
