Coffeecake in a mug

A coffee cup is the perfect vessel for a treat such as this coffee cake.

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar, divided
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
1 pinch plus 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1 pinch salt, optional
1/2 egg (from 1 egg lightly beaten and divided)
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Vanilla extract (a few drops)
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1 teaspoon apricot jam or other jam

Preparation method
To make the topping, combine 2 tablespoons brown sugar, all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon butter, a pinch of cinnamon and salt in a small bowl; mix together with your fingers. Pinch together until crumbs form.

To make the batter, mix the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar together in a large measuring cup until creamy; add egg, sour cream, syrup and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Add self-rising flour and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; beat until smooth.

Pour half of the batter into a buttered 12-ounce microwavable coffee cup, drop preserves into the center, then top with remaining batter. Sprinkle with crumb topping.

Microwave on high until done, about 1 minute 15 seconds.
