Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

For this project you will need

  • A coffee cup
  • A 700 or 1000 watt microwave
  • Two forks or One fork and One whisk
  • 5 Tablespoons, or one tablespoon you continue to whip off as you go
  • A small bowl

Step 2: Gather Your Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:
  • Flour

  • Vanilla Extract
  • An egg
  • Oil, (vegetable preferred)

Step 3: Flour and Sugar

Measure out four tablespoons of flour and four tablespoons of sugar into your coffee cup, then mix them together with your fork.

Step 4: Egg

Whisk an egg with either another fork or a whisk in a separate bowl. Then pour it into the cup with your flour and sugar. Next, stir all three ingredients together evenly.

Now, measure out three tablespoons of milk and three tablespoons oil and add them to your coffee cup. Blend them evenly with the other ingredients.

It's time to microwave.

If you would like you can gather frosting or other toppings and decorate your 'Cup' Cake before you eat it. I, personally, did not and just ate it plain.
