One of my Twitter followers recently asked me for a gluten free coffee mug cake recipe. I had never heard of a such a thing! So, curiosity got the best of best of me, and I had to get right on it. After a little research, I discovered that most recipes are actually a coffee cake, though you can make other cake recipes in a mug. I thought how great for those that are the only ones in their household that are gluten free to have their very own personal gluten free coffee cake, in minutes!
I also experimented with different ratios of flour to butter and brown sugar for the cinnamon streusel topping. I found that more moist the streusel is, the better the cake, however, it turns out a less attractive presentation. I went for a happy medium. If you don’t care what yours looks like, leave out 1/2 tablespoon flour, and just make sure your butter is very cold, and you cut the butter in quickly, to prevent softening. This way you’ll want to roll over in die. Heaven in minutes! Enjoy.
Note, the picture may not be very attractive, but I wanted to show you the texture of the cake. Hope it looks good enough to eat!
