How to Make Five Minute Microwave Coffee Cake in a Coffee Cup Well, first you’ll need a cup. If you want it to puff up over the top of the cup, use a small one. Or if you want to dig into the cup, use a big one. Add a tablespoon of butter and soften it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar until it’s fluffy and creamy, maybe 30 seconds. Now you can add half an egg. Then stir in 2 tablespoons of sour cream and a few drops of vanilla. Stir in 1/4 cup of flour and 1/8 teaspoon baking powder. If you want some crumb topping, in a separate ramekin or bowl add 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Smoosh it together with your fingers for a few seconds. Add the crumb topping mixture to the cup. Then microwave it. Start with 1 minute, then do 10 seconds more until it’s done to your liking. For my microwave, a minute 20 seconds does it perfectly.
