12-16 ounce mug sprayed with nonstick cooking spray

4 teaspoon granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 Tablespoon butter

2 Tablespoon beaten egg

1 Tablespoon milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

Cinnamon Sugar Muffin Directions:

In a small bowl or cup, combine sugar and cinnamon until blended.

In the mug, microwave butter on High for 15 to 30 seconds or until melted. 

Using a fork, whisk in the egg, milk, vanilla, and half of the cinnamon sugar.

Still using the fork, beat in flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth.

Sprinkle batter with remaining cinnamon sugar.

Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes (checking in at 1 minute), or until the center is just set.

Let cool slightly or entirely in a mug.

Eat directly from the mug, or gently remove to a small plate.

Try variations like:

Add 6-8 blueberries to the batter after mixing-or even this great blueberry muffin recipe.

Add 1-1/2 Tablespoon dried cranberries and 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest with the egg
