Watch Brandi whip up this lovely treat!



  • 1 tablespoon butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 of an egg
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese (could also use applesauce or sour cream)
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1 tablespoon butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


For the cake, begin by combining the butter and sugar in a coffee cup and stir until they are fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients, incorporating each one at a time. In a separate dish, combine all the ingredients for the topping and mix well. Crumble the topping mixture over the cake and cook in the microwave about 1 minute (duration depends on the microwave you're using).
