This is a single-serve espresso dessert in a cup recipe that can be made in a microwave. First, you'll need a cup. If you want it to puff up over the top of the cup, use a cappuccino one, or if you want to dig into the cup, use a latte mug.

For the cake:
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp sour cream
Few drops on vanilla essence
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 shot of espresso coffee
For crumb topping:
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Add a tbsp of butter
Soften it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds
Don't melt
Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar until it's fluffy and creamy, for few seconds
Now you can add egg
Just use half for one espresso cake
Then stir in 2 tbsp of sour cream or just heavy cream and a few drops of vanilla
Stir in 1/4 cup of flour and 1/8 tsp baking powder and shot of Qualita Rossa espresso (cold)
In a separate bowl add 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tbsp flour, 1 tbsp of brown sugar, and 1 tsp of cinnamon
Mix it well
Now back to your cup
Your ingredients are all mixed up
Add the crumb topping mixture to the cup
Then microwave it
Start with 1 minute, then do 10-20 seconds more until it's done
It will be really hot when you take it out of the microwave
Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar powder
Let it cool down for a few seconds.
