Coffee Cake in a Mug

Today, Sienna and I made ourselves a coffee cake in a mug as a treat. It was so good! I let Sienna make her own. She loved it...and it made me think about how good these one-serving mug recipes are for teaching kids how to cook. Some of my greatest memories as a kid were of the times I spent experimenting in the kitchen with my cousin. We would come up with all sorts of crazy recipes and things to make. I have been wanting to start giving my kids some cooking lessons. They watch and help me all the time, but I know they want to make things on their own, and the mug recipes are great practice!

Here is the coffee cake in a cup recipe. We followed the recipe as written, but didn't have sour cream, so used plain yogurt instead.

We had a little too much fun...
