    Recipes for.......

    (Recipe notes: Use a microwaveable cup, and consider placing it on a
    plate to catch possible overflow. We found that a 12-ounce cup worked
    best for these recipes. You may need to adjust cooking times depending
    on the strength of your microwave oven. The cup and mixture will be very
    hot. Allow to cool a bit before eating. Each recipe makes 1 serving.)



    Coffee cup coffeecake

    Crumb topping:
    2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 tablespoon butter, softened
    Pinch cinnamon
    Pinch salt, optional

    Cake:
    1 tablespoon butter, softened
    1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
    1/2 egg (1 egg lightly beaten and divided)
    2 tablespoons sour cream
    1 teaspoon maple syrup
    Vanilla (a few drops)
    1/4 cup self-rising flour
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon apricot or other preserves

    For the crumb topping, mix the ingredients together in a small bowl with
    your fingers. Pinch together until crumbs form. For the cake, mix butter
    and sugar together in a large measuring cup until creamy; add egg, sour
    cream, syrup and vanilla. Beat until blended well. Add flour and
    cinnamon; beat until smooth. Pour half of batter into a buttered coffee
    cup, drop preserves into center, then top with remaining batter. Top
    with crumb topping, microwave about 1 minute 15 seconds.



    Coffee cup upside-down cake

    Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    1/2 apple, thinly sliced, slices cut in half
    1/2 egg
    2 tablespoons milk
    Vanilla (a few drops)
    1/4 cup self-rising flour
    2 pinches cinnamon

    Put 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and the apple slices
    in the bottom of a coffee cup; microwave, 1 minute. Soften remaining
    butter; mix in a measuring cup with remaining sugar until creamy. Add
    egg, milk and vanilla; beat with a fork to combine. Add flour and
    cinnamon; beat until smooth. Swirl coffee cup to coat apples completely
    with melted sugar and butter; sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon. Pour
    batter into cup, swirl once. Microwave 1 minute.



    Coffee cup quiche

    Ingredients:
    1 egg
    1 1/2 tablespoons milk

    1/4 of a bagel (or similar amount of French bread, etc.)
    2 teaspoons cream cheese
    1/2 slice prosciutto or ham
    Dijon mustard
    Fresh thyme leaves or fresh chopped chives

    Beat egg and milk together with a fork in a coffee cup, with salt and
    pepper to taste. Tear bread into dime-size pieces; stir in. Add cream
    cheese; stir in. Tear or cut prosciutto into small pieces; add to
    mixture. Sprinkle with thyme. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. Garnish
    with mustard and fresh thyme or chives.

    1 tablespoon milk
    Salt, pepper
    1 tablespoon sharp cheddar cheese
    5 tortilla chips
    1 tablespoon salsa
    Sour cream, queso fresco, chopped green onion
