Everyday Coffee Cake (Microwave)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kree6528

This is a delicious and easy coffee cake that my mom used to make frequently when I was younger! It's so simple to whip it up and toss it in the microwave! I've also made this using reduced fat Bisquick, applesauce in place of the oil, and Egg Beaters in the batter to make it a little healthier, and it still tasted fabulous.

This coffee cake was really good and I loved that it was made in the microwave! I used a 7-1/2 inch round pyrex dish I had and it worked well. I forgot to try it with the egg substitute (next time :D)..... I did sub the oil in the batter with 2 heaping tablespoons of applesauce but I did use the butter in the topping. It was just a tad dry without the glaze, but with some tweaking for my microwave I am still very happy with the results and my family really liked it too. Thank you for this great recipe, we can't wait to have it again!
