    Linda of Castle Rock's Note:

    This is a recipe everybody will love and you can make in under ten minutes. Instead of lugging out big pans and making a mess in your kitchen; this is so easy to clean up and it is so delicious! Tip: If you want it to be a bit healthier, swap out the sour cream for Greek yogurt. I got this recipe from Prudent

      Oh my, Linda of Castle Rock, this is actually quite good. And it's pretty easy to make as well. I made mine in a ramekin, but next time I will make it in a coffee mug as the directions clearly state. (I thought that baking it in a ramekin, which is shorter than a mug, might allow it to photograph better, but instead the crumb topping spilled over the edge of the ramekin as the cake puffed up during baking.) But my goodness it tasted wonderful despite that minor faux pas. And the cooking time was perfect....1 minute and 10 seconds was just enough to bake it sufficiently while not drying out or hardening the cake (which has been a problem for me for many of the mug cakes I've tried). Made for the 2013 My 3 Chefs event. Yum!
