  • Add flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon into your large mug. Stir.
  • In a small dish melt 2 tbsp butter, pour this into your mug with the milk and vanilla. Stir to form batter.
  • In the same dish you melted the butter in add another 1 tbsp of butter and melt it.
  • Add 2 tbsp flour, brown sugar and cinnamon into this bowl. Use the back of a spoon to combine it so there is no powdery flour left. Sprinkle this mixture into your mug on top of your batter.
  • Put into the microwave for 1.5 minutes, enjoy! (2 min. for some microwaves may be necessary, we thought 1.5 was perfect for ours)
