{mug} coffee cake

It’s this big joke about my incapability to bake cakes.  I am no Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines that’s for sure.  I can’t even bake a cake in the microwave.  Until today.

I was trying to mix up our morning breakfast routine of cereal/waffles/cereal/waffles….  I also was looking for something that didn’t require turning on the oven the first day of summer.  Pinterest to the rescue and this amazing recipe for A Cup of Coffee Cake popped up. A fun treat that all of us enjoyed!
